The tickets for the rugby test game between the All Blacks and the Argentina Rugby team would be out in no more than a fortnight and Taranaki fans are already being urged to go get their tickets on time.
The test game which would be holding on September 9 at the Yarrow Stadium is expected to sell out just like last time in 2013 when the world champions went in against France at New Plymouth.
Volunteers as well as the sport supporters and fans who signed up with Taranaki Rugby for a season membership have been able to pre-book their tickets for the game. However, the tickets would be open to the general public from noon on Thursday, June 29.
Speaking, Geoff Hitchcock, the commercial manager noted that fans would be able to purchase the tickets at the TSB Showplace, and not at TaranakiRugby.
“The key thing for us is they will be able to buy them from the TSB Showplace, not Taranaki Rugby because we can’t sell the tickets here,” commercial manager Geoff Hitchcock said.
“That’s the biggest change because they could have in the past.” he added.
This would be the first time a Rugby Championship match is played at the stadium and Michael Collins, Taranaki Rugby chief executive is of the belief that the tickets to the test game will sell out quite quickly.
Also, four of Taranaki players namely Scott, Beauden and Jordie Barrett as well as WaisakeNaholo might be potential candidates for the September game.
Collins hopes that the three Barrett boys can run out on their home ground in the black jersey. He also knows for sure that a lot of fans would not want to miss out on the match that could end up being a historic one.
