Unique opportunity to fly to Chicago with the All Blacks

Unique opportunity to fly to Chicago with the All Blacks

This November the All Blacks will play a historic match in Chicago against the USA Eagles at Soldier Field and All Blacks Tours are offering fans the unique opportunity to fly there with the team on an exclusive chartered flight.

Fans can join the All Blacks and their touring party of coaches, staff and officials on a private Air New Zealand flight to Chicago via Los Angeles on Sunday 26 October.

Once in Chicago, supporters will have plenty of time to enjoy all the best that the city has to offer, plus there will also be other exclusive opportunities to get up close to the team – including attending an All Blacks training session.

It’s the All Blacks first game in the USA in 34 years, and only the 4th time they will have played the Eagles, who recently qualified for Rugby World Cup 2015. It promises to be the biggest match in the USA to date, with a record crowd expected.

The venue for the occasion is Soldier Field, America’s is the oldest NFL stadium, opened in 1924.

Since 1971 it has been the home of Chicago’s NFL team, the Chicago Bears.

Chicago is the third biggest city of the United States and its skyline is home to three of America's five tallest buildings, offering even the most well-travelled visitor breath-taking views over Lake Michigan - one of the five Great Lakes found in North America.

The city has a famed blues heritages, with its music clubs once home to the likes of Louis Armstrong, Earl Hines and the Blues Brothers.

Other must-see attractions of the city include the Art Institute of Chicago - the second largest art museum in the United States; Magnificent Mile - Chicago's largest shopping district; Millenium Park; and Navy Pier - Chicago's most-popular attraction, complete with a ferris wheel.

All Blacks Tours General Manager David Caldwell, urges fans to get in quickly.

“This truly is a unique opportunity for All Blacks supporters and seats on the flight are guaranteed to sell out fast.”

Steve Tew, CEO of NZ Rugby says “We think Chicago and Solider Field is a great fit for both sides.”

“The ground is a memorial to American soldiers and opened the same year the USA won the gold medal in rugby at the Paris Olympics - the last time rugby was played at the Olympics.

“I visited Soldier Field recently and this is a stadium with huge atmosphere, rich history and wonderful facilities and a ground which has never hosted an international rugby match so this will be an unforgettable night of sports action.”
