More than 27,000 tickets had been sold by early this afternoon for the historic ninth-round NRL match between the Vodafone Warriors and Canterbury-Bankstown at Wellingtons Westpac Stadium tomorrow night (match day sponsor: Vodafone). Photo: Photosport.


Vodafone Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah said less than 6000 tickets were available for sale for the event dubbed The Capital Clash.


The sporting public in the greater Wellington area and much further afield have responded fantastically in the way theyve embraced the occasion, the first time weve taken a home game out of Auckland.


But while more than 27,000 tickets have been sold there are still plenty of great seats available at great prices. Wed urge fans to buy now to not only avoid being disappointed but to also save on prices at the gate.


Remember, the cheaper pre-purchase prices are available right up until the gates open at 3.00pm.


Adult tickets are available from just $25, children from $10 and families from $60 (two adults and two children). Go to www.ticketek.co.nz or:

If tickets continue to sell at the rate they have been, The Capital Clash will set a record for the biggest rugby league crowd not just at Westpac Stadium but for any rugby league match played in Wellington.


The biggest crowd at Westpac Stadium was 27,724 for the first of the Bulldogs first four home matches there against the Vodafone Warriors in 2001. The record for any rugby league match in the Capital is said to be the crowd of 28,000 for the Sesquicentennial Test between the Kiwis and Australia at Athletic Park in 1990.
