North Harbour Stadium To Hold Pre-Season Match

Following the Lion Red Kiwis sensational victory over the Kangaroos on 18 October, North Harbour Stadium has reached an agreement with the Vodafone Warriors to again hold a pre-season match at the Stadium in 2004.

Penrith Panthers the reigning Minor Premiers & NRL champions, proved a bogey team for the Vodafone Warriors in 2004 beating them four times, including, semis, two competition round losses and a pre-season match.

Vodafone Warriors General Manager, Spiro Tsiros acknowledges that North Harbour Stadium with the 2003 pre-season match against Cronulla bringing in 15,000 fans, its fantastic facilities and a close proximity to

the Vodafone Warriors fan base, is the ideal venue to play a top class side such as Penrith.

The match is confirmed for Sunday 29th February 2004. A kick off time is yet to be finalised but a 5.30pm main game start is anticipated. Bartercard Cup teams, North Harbour Tigers will play Mount Albert Lions as a curtain raiser. Tickets will go on sale early in February and will be available from Ticketek, the Mad Butcher and the Stadium office.

Excellent value, 20,000 ground tickets at only $10 each for adults, with child and family prices also available. North Shore City and Auckland residents love to support the Vodafone Warriors and its our aim to full the Stadium says North Harbour Stadium General Manager, Wayne Scurrah.

Without a doubt, some of most exciting and memorable games over the years have come from league and as the venue, it is an honour to be part of it all. New Zealanders have been incredibly supportive of the Vodafone Warriors and we will be encouraging fans to come along to North Harbour Stadium in 2004 to watch their team play the best possible opposition in the final game prior to the commencing 2004 NRL season.
