Seating for fans at the reciprocal venue will be available in specified General Admission areas.
“The two clubs work together and explore opportunities when we can” said Blues Chief Executive, Michael Redman. “Some of our loyal fans also follow the fortunes of the Warriors and this is a chance to support them, and likewise this is an enormous opportunity for the general sports fan to support the Warriors on Friday and the Blues on Saturday for the price of one ticket.”
“It’s a great chance for fans to show their support for the two oval ball teams in this city.”
The Warriors are right behind this unique opportunity.
“We are hugely excited about this initiative and what it means for our members and sports fans in Auckland,” Vodafone Warriors CEO Cameron George said.
“We are always searching for new ways to add value for our fans and encourage them to attend games. We don’t see the Blues as our competition.
