Last chance to see All Blacks debut at Forsyth Barr Stadium
Tickets priced at $40 and $80
Record rugby crowd of 29,000 expected
"We're thrilled to give fans who missed out another chance to see the All Blacks," said Neil Sorensen, New Zealand Rugby Union General Manager Professional Rugby.
The seats are located at the western end of the ground in front of the existing temporary seats and are being sold as restricted view seats, priced at $40 and $80.
"These are great prices so we're sure the tickets will go fast. I urge fans to act quickly as it's their last chance to see the All Blacks in action for the first time in the magnificent arena of Forsyth Barr Stadium."
Tickets for the remaining seats go on sale 9am Thursday from ticketdirect.
The sale of these seats will mean around 29,000 will be attending the first Test to be held at Forsyth Barr Stadium following its successful hosting of four Rugby World Cup 2011 matches last year. This is a record for a sporting fixture at the stadium.
Sorensen said with Eden Park a sell-out for this weekend's second Bledisloe Cup Test and with Forsyth Barr Stadium likely to sell out, the last chance for fans to see the All Blacks play at home this year will be in Wellington against Argentina on Saturday 8 September.
"Tickets are also selling well there with about two thirds of tickets already snapped up so my advice to fans is to move fast to secure the seats they want to see the All Blacks take on Argentina for the first time in the Rugby Championship."
