John Christie, Director at Enterprise Dunedin, said hosting The British & Irish Lions would be one of the sporting highlights for the city in 2017.
“We can all recall the last time the Lions played in Dunedin in 2005, thousands of local and visiting fans made for a tremendous occasion. Again, we’re anticipating the city will be awash with fans and we are delighted to host the British & Irish Lions vs Highlanders match which will showcase Dunedin as the best venue for sporting events in the country.”
Highlanders Chief Executive, Roger Clark said the first ever meeting of the British & Irish Lions and the Highlanders was shaping up to be a great contest.
“This game will represent the first time the Pulse Energy Highlanders have ever played an international team, for the players the opportunity to play against the Lions comes along only once in their career. This event is truly significant in the history of our club. I have no doubt this unique and historic day will be marked by a huge crowd and a magnificent atmosphere.”
The public sale follows a priority period from early October with thousands of community members (including players, club members, volunteers), season ticket holders, stadium members and Team All Blacks members snapping up the available allocation of tickets.
The matches on sale exclude the All Blacks Test matches, which are only available by entering an online ballot which closes on 1 November or securing official hospitality or travel packages.
