It’s less than 100 days to go until Nelson hosts the greatest rugby team on the planet for the very first time.
Public ticket sales for the All Blacks vs Argentina test at Trafalgar Park on Saturday, September 8, went on sale on Tuesday.
Tasman Rugby Union commercial and marketing manager Les Edwards says the city has been buzzing in anticipation for its inaugural All Blacks test.
“Pre-sales have been positive, and a lot of momentum has come from team All Blacks’ members and Mako season member purchases.”
Les says there has been a significant uptake in Mako season memberships, which is very positive for the union.
Tickets can be purchased online at allblacks.com and start at $100.
Les warns punters to go through the official avenues to secure their seats.
“We want people to go through the right channel of the All Blacks website and not use resale sites.”
Les says fans who have bought through resale sites have had issues at both the Auckland and Wellington tests against France.
“The only way to guarantee your seat is to go through All Blacks.com, Beggs Musicworks, (264 Hardy St) or at the i-SITE (77 Trafalgar St).”
The All Blacks went two from two to start their season on Saturday, dispatching the French 26-13 in a scrappy encounter in Wellington.
The third test will take place under the roof in Dunedin this weekend.
