We have worked hard to create an exciting game-day experience for everyone at Forsyth Barr Stadium!
Here are a few examples of what we get up to...
Oceana Gold Take A Kid To The Highlanders
Oceana Gold and New World bring you the ‘Take A Kid To The Highlanders’ programme. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.ticketdirect.co.nz or by visiting one of the Ticket Direct ticket outlets around the Highlanders franchise region.
- The price is $26 for one adult and one child and this includes service fees (apart from phone orders which are $1.50)
- Additional children are $6 each.
- Each Child will receive a ‘kids pack’ which contains a few goodies including a bag of eta chips, Strictly Coffee voucher for mum or dad & CalciYum Milk!
- The ‘kids pack’ can be picked-up on match-days from the Oceana Gold tent inside gate E.
The team heads over to the Take a Kid to the Highlanders area after the games so you can collect signatures after each game!
More FM Kids XV
More FM Dunedin brings the More FM Kids XV to Super Rugby this season. Each match-day in Dunedin and Invercargill fifteen lucky kids will run out with the Highlanders. To find out more about this promotion, please visit the More FM website.
City of Dunedin Pipe Band
The City of Dunedin Pipe Band have been involved with the Highlanders since the teams inception into the Super Rugby competition in 1996. In 2011 the Band took centre stage prior to all Highlander Super Rugby home games last season with a stirring rendition of Flower Of Scotland and a brave display from the Bands’ Snare Drummer. In 2014 the City Of Dunedin Pipe Band will again be an important part of the pre-match at Forsyth Barr Stadium (Dunedin) and Rugby Park Stadium in Invercargill.
The Tux Blimp
The Tux Purina blimp was s a new addition in 2013... and what an addition! At 5m long and requiring a helicopter pilot to fly it at Forsyth Barr Stadium, it's a great element to enhance the overall match experience. The Tux Purina blimp will be in action at halftime and there are some great prizes loaded and ready to drop!! So watch up and a big thanks to Purina Tux. And if you want to chase the blimp at halftime make sure you wear your Highlanders jersey and meet down at Gate E by the Take a Kid to the Highlanders tent at the start of halftime.
FREE STUFF thanks to Vodafone - Dancing in the stands, Challenge Fuel Super shot and the Speight's canon
Vodafone generously gave us an iPad mini to give away each game during the halftime dance off. We got to see some sweet moves and are looking forward to making it bigger and better in 2015! Challenge rewarded fans in the stands who had great aim with $100 petrol vouchers and Speight's provided t-shirts to fire out of the canon and into the crowd. Thanks again to Vodafone, Challenge Fuel, Speight's and Dunedin City Motors for providing the vehicles to get everything around the field!
