Full guide: Where to watch Saturday night's blockbuster

Almost 100 watch parties across the country will give fans the chance to make a night of it backing the One New Zealand Warriors in their blockbuster NRL preliminary final against the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night (9.50pm kick-off NZT).

Supporters will be able to gather in venues for live coverage of the One New Zealand Warriors’ biggest match in 12 years on the Sky Sport and Sky Sport Now platforms.

Among the watch parties will be a special one in the Go Media Stadium precinct at Lilyworld situated behind the West Stand while Christchurch's Islington Tavern is another addition.

“It’s been terrific having the support of our commercial partner Lion Breweries in setting up dozens of watch parties for the third week running as our final campaign goes on,” said One New Zealand Warriors CEO Cameron George.

“The level of support for the team has been unbelievable all season and has gone to another level in the finals.

“The players really feel the love and the passion. It means so much to them.

“We’d urge as many people as possible get along to a watch party or put on a party at home and make a night of it. The boys will be out to do all they can to make everyone proud.”
