Tickets Remain Ahead of All Blacks Test
As the biggest rugby event to take place in Nelson approaches, a large number of tickets have remained unsold. The Tasman Rugby Union commercial and marketing manager Les Edwards told reporters that there are currently 1200 tickets that are still up for sale for the All Blacks vs Argentina Test match that’s set to take place at Trafalgar Park.
Edwards confirmed that despite the remaining tickets, the pressure to sell has been eased in terms of the total amount sold, with 2500 tickets short of the 21000 maximum capacity of from two weeks ago.
With over 7000 fans expected to be passing through the security checks and scanners at the venue’s three separate entrances, the main focus for organisers is now logistics.
Edwards told reporters that timing is of the utmost important at the moment in order to ensure that all ticket holders were inside the stadium and seated before the start of the match. He also has urged punters to try and use the gates that correspond with their tickets in the hope of allowing easier entry for everyone attending.
The gates to the event will open at 5:30 pm, and both teams will arrive shortly after at 6:15 pm. A New Zealand Defence Force helicopter will then fly in to drop the match ball at 7:20pm, followed by the national anthem at 7:30pm.
Single tickets are still available for the West Stand seats, while a limited number of tickets for the East and North stands are purchasable.
