Limited tickets left for Bledisloe test

Tickets are still available but you had better get in quickly.

That is the message before the All Blacks’ Bledisloe Cup test against Australia at Forsyth Barr Stadium on August 26.

Dunedin Venues Management Ltd did not provide exact numbers, although confirmed a limited number of tickets remained available.

Those include seats across all ticket categories,  ranging in price from $95 to $175 for adults.

Discounted children’s tickets can be bought in category D for $45.

Sales have been steady after an initial surge when the tickets went on sale in late June.

Of those, about 50% came from outside the region, marginally below the 60% major events held at the stadium typically attracted.

The temporary Otago Daily Times stand will be in place for the match, allowing for a capacity crowd of 28,740.

It will be the second time the covered stadium has hosted a Bledisloe Cup test, the first being in 2013.

The All Blacks won 41-33 on that occasion.

This year’s game will be the second Bledisloe Cup test of the year, following one in Sydney next Saturday.

The cup, contested between the two countries, has been held by New Zealand since 2003.
