  • Is this sold out?

    The one in your post seems to be limited to one area of the stadium.



  • um, yea MN5, was looking in Whangarei....
     
    one screen tells me there are 'not many tickets left (temp grandstand sold out) but are some elsewhere, but when I search for 1 for me and 1 for TR Jnr, is says....
     
    Sorry, no tickets match your search.
    You can try changing quantity or ticket type, or you can explore one of the options below.
     
    There are no options below...
     
     
    I tried just doing 2 adult tickets in case they didn't want TR Jnr, but still same answer (when I search in any part of the stadium)



  • I know that they added 3,500 seats recently for demand so must be close to a sell out.



  • um, yea....

    Using the two boxes together seems to be fucked.



  • Either you can only buy single, non-adjacent tickets (as it's close to selling out), or the website has some issues  ...



  • I've tried all options but no luck....I cant even get one sitting by myself??



  • now it thnks I am a bot....
     
    I did find 1 ticket now, by myself at $120.
     
    Might just have to keep a look out for TRC match to take TR Jnr.



  • TR - saw this that you may be interested in
     

    Tickets for the Blues versus Northland Barbarians match at Toll Stadium have gone on sale.
     
    The game will be played on June 24 during the Super Rugby international break - a day before the All Blacks and Wales final test in Dunedin - with ticket sales having started yesterday.
    Tickets for the game in Whangarei can be bought from the Northland Rugby Union or through its website www.taniwha.co.nz, with grandstand seats $20 adult, $10 junior (5-14 years), and $50 for a family of two adults and two juniors.
    Children 4 years and under are free. General admission is $12 for adult, $6 junior, and $30 for family. Tickets will also be sold at the gate on game day.



  • We tried to get 2 tickets a couple of weeks ago.  Ended up ringing up in frustration to ask why the website was broken.
     
    Apparently the website wasn't broken there is just a really high and unexpected demand for tickets and only singles were available.  I managed to get 2 tickets in one row behind the other, so that worked out OK I guess.



  • Surely it's no surprise given EP has a potential catchment of close to 2 mill that a couple of weeks out tickets are hard to come by
    Even 5 weeks ago the choice was limited.
    Anyone who is still keen should keep an eye on ticket masters resale section



  • TR - saw this that you may be interested in, The Blues are coming to town.
    Think I'm busy that weekend.

    It sure was a surprise to me.  I thought I would be able to get tickets easily for a game against Wales.



  • Riding the wave of public excitement about the RWC triumph last year. First opportunity to see them since etc
     
    Plus EP test tickets have been reasonably scarce for most tests since 2011.
     
    Easy enough to get (as opposed to the bad old days when you had to know someone who knew someone) but you still best advised to get in reasonably quick.
     
    Could be interesting trying to score Lions tickets next year



  • well I know someone, and will be able to get some tickets, although might be gold ones only which are pricey I think, so may just wait for the release of TRC ones....



  • Easy enough to get (as opposed to the bad old days when you had to know someone who knew someone) but you still best advised to get in reasonably quick.

    Yep, but as you say you still need to get your tickets as soon as they're on sale.  I'm sure the Bledisloe Cup game will sell out even quicker.

    Like 2005, it's best to be a season ticketholder so you can buy tickets before they go on public sale.  Even then, you are likely to be moved to other seats for the Lions fans who pay a premium for the best seats.



  • I think I got an e-mail for expressions of interest for Lions tickets?

    yeah but that means buying a season ticket I will never use



  • yeah but that means buying a season ticket I will never use

    If you use it to get access to tickets, then you used it, in a manner of speaking. For anyone willing to buy from scalpers, buying a season ticket is a nice way to pay extra as it supports rugby rather than the money going into someone's back pocket.



  • There is of course always the option of corporate hospitality [emoji6]
    I've never paid a scalper coz they are a cancer on sport



  • Thread diversion:
    As some of you know about ticketing. What are my best ways to try for tickets on an AB EOYT. Thinking Paris this year and Twickers or Edinburgh if we are there next year.

    If you want to be part of an offical tour then Williments or All Black tours (https://allblackstours.com) are options.  I haven't used either myself.  It's usually cheaper to purchase match tickets online and sort out your own travel and accommodation.

    Cheers. I am moving over there next week for a 3 year stretch so was wondering what the 'on the ground' options were.

    Cool stuff
     
    Trying to buy green zone tickets at the Tron, but they seem sold out.  Weird as all other seating available, but not those.  Anyone else having similar issues



  • Green Zone tickets would be the quickest to sell out as they are the cheapest and popular with students.  Try the Panasonic stand at the other end.
     
    My ticket is inclusive in my season pass so I haven't looked on the Ticket Direct website to see what is available.

    well the range of tickets available within 30 mins of them going online were pretty average TBH! 
     
    Was willing to pay a bit more to get near halfway, but simply could not get it to pick some there for me, tended to be more on the tryline, ended up going right behind the goal posts....
