Tournament officials have become aware of issues resulting from spectators purchasing tickets from third-party sellers and other “marketplace” websites.

“We’d strongly urge fans to make sure they are purchasing their tickets via the official tournament platform at,” said General Manager for New Zealand Andrea Nelson.

“This will ensure spectators avoid being overcharged and receive the correct information regarding ticket availability.”

The simplest, safest way to buy tickets is to visit the official tournament website, find the fixture you wish to attend and click on the “get tickets” tab.

“Tickets are selling fast following two great weekends of matches with outstanding crowds and good crowd behaviour, so we really urge fans to jump online to avoid the disappointment of missing out on a seat,” Nelson said.

“The atmosphere at the matches has been incredible and has everyone talking. And we have drawn the two biggest crowds to attend Rugby League in this country this year which is a great endorsement of the tournament.”
