Maroochy Weekly - - SPORT -

TICK­ETS for the Coast’s his­toric NRL clash be­tween the South Syd­ney Rab­bitohs and New Zealand War­riors are now on sale.

The round five match on Satur­day, April 13 be the first NRL game for premier­ship points to be played on the Coast.

Rab­bitohs pow­er­house for­ward Ge­orge Burgess joined Sun­shine Coast Deputy Mayor Tim Dwyer at Alexan­dra Head­land last week to launch the tick­ets for the 2019 match.

Burgess is look­ing for­ward to play­ing at Sun­shine Coast Sta­dium in April.

“There are South Syd­ney mem­bers and sup­port­ers right across Aus­tralia and we have al­ways en­joyed great sup­port when we’ve taken our home games to re­gional ar­eas,” he said.

“I’m sure it will be no dif­fer­ent up here when we take on the War­riors.

“It will be a great week­end up here in April so I en­cour­age all Rab­bitohs mem­bers to grab their tick­ets early and make a full week­end of it as there is so much to see and do on the Sun­shine Coast.

“My fam­ily and I travel up this way often through­out the year as my wife’s fam­ily is from the Sun­shine Coast and it’s a great spot to get away, and now you can cheer on your footy team as well.”

Cr Dwyer said it was a great event for the Coast.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a strong con­tin­gent of Rab­bitohs and War­riors mem­bers in the crowd at Sun­shine Coast Sta­dium on 13 April, but we’re also keen for our lo­cal rugby leaguelov­ing com­mu­nity to have the best chance to see the NRL in their back­yard for the first time,” h said.

“Rugby league has a strong sup­port base here on the Coast, in­clud­ing those who keep our lo­cal clubs run­ning, former and cur­rent play­ers, and mums and dads who get their kids to train­ing each week, as well as those who watch the NRL on TV ev­ery week dur­ing the sea­son.

“They’ve been wait­ing to see the NRL here on the Sun­shine Coast and the next four days give them spe­cial pri­or­ity ac­cess to tick­ets to the his­toric first game.”

Sun­shine Coast res­i­dents can use the code­word SCLOCAL when prompted after log­ging in to the Tick­etek web­site to pur­chase their tick­ets.

Tick­ets start at $30 for adults, $26 con­ces­sion, and $18 chil­dren. Gen­eral ad­mis­sion fam­ily passes are avail­able for $72.
