Fi­nal rugby match of­fers on

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Waikato Rugby Union has made its fi­nal game of 2013 this Satur­day against Taranaki free for chil­dren who come along with a pay­ing adult.

The free child ticket of­fer is for the WEL Net­works stand, and tick­ets must be col­lected from the Gate 1 ticket of­fice at Waikato Sta­dium in or­der to gain en­try to the venue.

There is a min­i­mum re­quire­ment of one adult per four chil­dren.

Waikato Rugby Union chief ex­ec­u­tive Gra­ham Bowen said the move was made to try to fill the stands to show sup­port for the Wai- kato team in their match of the sea­son.

‘‘We re­alise that it is the end of the school hol­i­days, so we wanted to do some­thing that will al­low fam­i­lies to eas­ily come to the fi­nal match of the sea­son.

‘‘This is your chance to come and sup­port your rep­re­sen­ta­tive rugby team.

‘‘A fam­ily of four can come to this game for only $20 – if they bring their own home­made food into the venue then that makes for a cheap and fun night out.

‘‘We hope that by mak­ing this game free to chil­dren Waikato fam­i­lies will get along and ex­pe­ri­ence prov-

fi­nal in­cial rugby and be en­cour­aged to re­turn to games next year.’’

The Ryan Wheeler Me­mo­rial Tro­phy, played for an­nu­ally be­tween the two prov­inces, will be up for grabs on Satur­day night with Waikato look­ing to de­fend the pres­ti­gious tro­phy they re­claimed this time last year.

There are also a num­ber of adult ticket spe­cials. See for de­tails.

Th­ese ticket deals are avail­able from the Gate 1 ticket of­fice at Waikato Sta­dium only. This will be open from 9am to 5pm, Wed­nes­day to Satur­day.
