Less than 5000 tickets left for Manly match against Warriors in Christchurch

The tickets for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles fixture against the Vodafone Warriors in Christchurch continue to sell fast and with four weeks to kick-off, less than 5000 seats are still available.

Match organiser Justin Wallace expects a full house on June 9 and says he is pleased the sports fans in Canterbury got behind the game.

“The tickets sales show that Christchurch people love big events and seeing some of the biggest NRL stars in action will be a night to remember.”

Wallace says that fuelled by the Warriors high position on the ladder, the organisers are quickly running out of the premium seats on the halfway line and the cheapest tickets behind both in-goal areas.

“But there are still plenty of good seats left and nearly all of them under cover. We just want to implore people not to leave it to the last few days and risk missing out,” says Wallace.

Wallace says that Christchurch sports fans are used to getting a ticket on the day and that may backfire on some.

“Before the last NRL match here in 2016 with the Panthers, it was heart-breaking to see how some die-hard league fans were left outside because they did not expect the game to be sold out.”

Wallace wants to remind sports fans that they need to consider buying a seat in the Manly Sea Eagles Members Area and be in to win the chance become the team’s 18th man on the day.

The Sea Eagles are offering one lucky Manly fan a unique opportunity to be present at the Captain’s Run, every part of the on-field match day warm up, in the players tunnel for the coin toss and even sit on the bench during the match.

This fortunate fan will be handing out energy drinks to players after the match and join the Trent Barrett and Daly Cherry-Evans in the post-match press conference.

To commemorate this incredible night, the Manly team will also present the 18th man with the Ngāi Tahu-designed jersey, specifically produced for the Sea Eagles’ matches in Christchurch.

To be in the draw for this extraordinary experience, all you have to do is purchase a New Zealand Sea Eagles Membership package.

The package, available from $95 for a junior and $115 for an adult, includes an A-grade match ticket, one complimentary ticket for a second home match at Lottoland in Sydney, a 2018 Membership scarf, the 2018 Membership Pack and a special Manly coffee travel mug.

Match promoter Justin Wallace says that in all his years working with the NRL, he has never seen access like this to the team on match day for any outsider.

“This is truly a unique chance to experience an NRL match from close up and be right in the mix of it,” says Wallace.

“We are very lucky that Manly is giving this opportunity to a fan, who will be experiencing what the players go through and be truly part of the Manly team for that night.”
