All Blacks vs Australia: 25,000 tickets sold for Bledisloe Cup test – extra seats being added

A thousand extra extra seats are being installed at Sky Stadium, after more than 25,000 seats have been sold within 24 hours for the first Bledisloe Cup Test on October 11.

News from NZ Rugby – October 1
All Blacks fans can now buy tickets for the first Bledisloe Cup Test to be played at Sky Stadium in Wellington on Sunday October 11.

The All Blacks Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia in Wellington will now kick-off at 4pm, 30 minutes later than previously advertised.

NZR General Manager Professional Rugby & Performance Chris Lendrum said:

“It’s not a major shift, but in New Zealand it means fans will have a little extra time to get to a TV to watch the match after other Sunday commitments and similarly, in Australia there was a desire to push a little later to capture a larger television audience.

“We know our fans are excited about seeing Test rugby in the afternoon so the important thing was to ensure both Tests would be played in daylight.”

The earlier Bledisloe Cup kick-off time also means some adjusted dates and kick-off times for a number of Mitre 10 Cup and FPC matches in Weeks Five and Six.
