Aucklanders Descend On Eden Park For Rugby Showdown

The entire Panasonic stand at Eden Park will be awash with blue and white supporters in a show of allegiance for Auckland at this Friday’s NPC match against Otago.

Telecom is taking 3000 Aucklanders to the rugby to bolster support for the Auckland side when they take on long-time southern rivals, Otago.

“We want to ensure the players are well supported on home ground, regardless of where they are placed in the competition,” said Lesley Pope, Telecom Head of Consumer Marketing (Acting).

“There’ll be lots of action and spot prizes on the night including an exclusive tour of Eden Park with special access to the tunnel and changing rooms.”

The occasion will be one of the biggest public hospitality events hosted by Telecom, reinforcing our support for Auckland Rugby.

“It’s a chance for family and friends in Auckland to unite in collective support, and enjoy what will be a great night of fun and entertainment for all,” Ms Pope said.
