The Vodafone Warriors and Blues have joined forces to offer a unique cross-code experience for this weekend’s double header against Aussie opposition.
Members and fans of both the Vodafone Warriors and Blues will be able to attend each other’s matches this weekend with their single ticket.
The Vodafone Warriors take on Gold Coast Titans in the NRL at Mt Smart Stadium at 8pm on Friday while the Blues host the Waratahs in the Investec Super Rugby at Eden Park at 7.35pm on Saturday.
The two clubs have joined to offer fans entry to both games with a ticket to either game.
Anyone who has a valid ticket to Friday’s game against the Titans, including membership cards and corporate tickets, will be able to gain entry to the Blues game on Saturday night, and likewise ticketholders and members of the Blues can scan their match ticket for entry to Mt Smart Stadium a day earlier.
Seating for fans at the reciprocal venue will be available in specified General Admission areas.
“We are hugely excited about this initiative and what it means for our members and sports fans in Auckland,” Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George said.
“We are always searching for new ways to add value for our fans and encourage them to attend games. We don’t see the Blues as our competition.
“We’d prefer to work with them and hopefully this is just the start of things to come. Ultimately, we want fans in Auckland to get along to live sport and get behind both teams.”
The Blues are also right behind what is a unique opportunity in New Zealand sport.
“The two clubs work together and explore opportunities when we can,” Blues CEO Michael Redman said.
“Some of our loyal fans also follow the fortunes of the Warriors and this is a chance to support them.
“Likewise, this is an enormous opportunity for the general sports fan to support the Warriors on Friday and the Blues on Saturday for the price of one ticket.
“It’s a great chance for fans to show their support for the two oval ball teams in this city.”
