A football menu showcasing future and current NRL players plus more live entertainment will highlight the second home game day of the year when the One New Zealand Warriors host North Queensland at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday.
The seventh-round NRL contest gives the One New Zealand Warriors the chance to back up their third-round performance against the Cowboys when they put together their most impressive display of the season in a 26-12 win in Townsville.
The following week members and fans created an unforgettable atmosphere when they drove the One New Zealand Warriors to a pulsating 16-14 win over the Bulldogs in the first game of the year at Mount Smart.
The crowd of almost 20,000 whipped up a fervour and it’s anticipated there will be a much bigger attendance this Saturday as the One New Zealand Warriors look to take another step forward in making Mount Smart Stadium an intimidating venue for visiting teams.
Before the main event kicks off at 5.00pm, there will be a special football occasion when some of the game’s most promising local players clash in a match between the Pasifika Aotearoa Collective 18s and the One New Zealand Warriors 17s (2.30pm kick-off with gates opening at 2.15pm).
The One New Zealand Warriors and PAC launched an exclusive alliance late last year aimed at providing a range of benefits for both organisations, not least enhancing the pathways available for aspiring Warriors players.
The last hour ahead of kick-off in the NRL fixture will include a live performance from singer Lavina Williams, formerly with top New Zealand ‘90s girl group Ma-V-Elle. She’s due on stage at 4.10pm.
Other established activities and attractions will be available around the stadium along with numerous food and beverage outlets; the 95 Social Precinct will again be a popular hub for families and friends to gather pre-game.
Merchandise will be available from the SuperStore as well as other outlets around the stadium.
