DVML $750,000 profit from hosting rugby games

Dunedin Venues Management Ltd has revealed another healthy profit of more than $750,000 from hosting the All Blacks and Highlanders.

The company running Forsyth Barr Stadium has confirmed it made a profit of $419,639 from seven Highlanders Super 15 matches at the venue this year.

Another $353,616 was made from hosting the stadium's first All Blacks test, against the Springboks on September 15, which attracted a sell-out crowd.

That meant a combined profit of $773,255 for DVML from the top two tiers of rugby at the stadium.

Confirmation of the profit came after DVML released detailed information showing it also made a small surplus, of $36,475, from hosting six ITM Cup games, including a semifinal, this year.

A detailed breakdown of the Super 15 and All Blacks figures has not yet been released by DVML.
