Sunday football returns to Go Media Stadium Mt Smart for the third and final time of the regular season for the One New Zealand Warriors’ 20th-round match against Cronulla Sutherland this week (4.00pm kick-off).
With the home side coming off an outstanding 46-10 win over Parramatta on Saturday night, fans are urged to secure their seats now with tickets again selling rapidly for what could be the biggest crowd of the year.
In the five home games so far, the One New Zealand Warriors have attracted a total attendance of 108,983 (an average crowd of 21,796 a game) with a best of 23,686 for the match against the Dolphins.
The stadium’s capacity has been increased with extra seating erected for the rugby union Test between the All Blacks and South Africa being played this Saturday night. Fans attending this Sunday should take note that, due to the additional seating, the Precinct 95 area won’t be available.
The sixth-placed One New Zealand Warriors will be striving for their 11th win of the year on Sunday as they continue their bid to make the NRL finals for the first time since 2018.
For avid supporters there will be another double header treat with the club’s New South Wales Cup side, running fourth in the competition, taking on the third-placed Newtown Jets in the curtain raiser (1.30pm kick-off).
With gates opening at 1.15pm, this sixth home game at Go Media Stadium is themed as the club’s Members’ Appreciation Day.
It’s an opportunity for the One New Zealand Warriors to acknowledge the loyalty of the club’s hardcore members during the three seasons in exile in Australia and to also thank them for the exceptional turnouts throughout this season.
Members will have exclusive access to Lilyworld from 1.00pm-3.00pm and there’ll be interviews with members during the game day programme.
Live entertainment is again on the menu with hip hop artist Kings on stage at 3.15pm.
