NRL NINES | Aotea Square Fan Day
Vodafone Warriors members and fans - and rugby league supporters in general - are in for a huge day when all 16 NRL clubs attend the ultimate fan day at Aotea Square in Auckland tomorrow ahead of the Dick Smith NRL Auckland Nines at Eden Park on Saturday and Sunday.
All teams will attend the event during the course of the day with Vodafone Warriors captain Shaun Johnson and his players due to arrive at 3.00pm along with the Bulldogs and the Eels.
The event kick starts a packed weekend chock full of footy action with the opportunity to meet favourite players before a ball has even been kicked!
Aotea Square has been turned into a massive fanzone for the entire weekend.
Kicking off at 9am on Friday, all clubs will pop up throughout the day for exclusive signing sessions and possibly the chance for fans to practise ball skills with their heroes.
There will be giveaways, activities, live entertainment, a rugby league exhibition and free kids rides and games to keep everyone preoccupied. There's also a special lounge for members of NRL clubs and the Vodafone Warriors will have a merchandise outlet operating.
Anyone who doesn't have a ticket for the Nines on Saturday or Sunday can head to Aotea Square's Fanzone where the big screen will show all 34 games live.
