The final few tickets for the Test were snapped up on match day morning with bright sun, blue skies and calm conditions creating ideal conditions for a capacity 20,000-strong crowd to watch the All Blacks first Test in Christchurch since 2016.
“Thanks for the amazing support that we’ve received all week. It’ll be great to see so many fans come out to meet us at a sold out Orangetheory Stadium,” All Blacks Head Coach Ian Foster said.
The match kicks off at the later than usual time of 7.45pm, a time shift to accommodate the Black Ferns O’Reilly Cup match against Australia in Adelaide.
Fans are encouraged to turn up to Orangetheory Stadium early to avoid delays entering the ground with gates open from 6pm. For fans wishing to drive to the venue, there are limited venue carpark spaces still available to buy online HERE.
