The Crusaders v Sharks Investec Super Rugby match at Twickenham in London on Sunday, March 27, is proving extremely popular, with more than 16,000 tickets selling in the first 30 hours.

A United Kingdom Ticketmaster spokesman said it was the strongest response to a rugby match outside an international that he had experienced.

It is the first time that a Super Rugby match has been played outside of the SANZAR countries and has

come together following the February earthquake in Christchurch which damaged AMI Stadium.
A percentage of each ticket sold will go towards the Christchurch earthquake recovery appeal.

Tickets for the match can be bought from www.ticketmaster.co.uk

  • I wish I could go. Maybe next time. Perhaps if this game is a success with ticket sales it could happen again.

  • 16000 tickets is £80000. If they sell 55000 that’s £275000. That’s a nice sum for the appeal from one game.

  • Think all 55 000 seats will be sold. Real pity it was reduced to 55 000 seater. Still great. Wish I could be there for the first ever SuperRugby game to be held in the NH.

    Hope for a dry day. Should be a cracking game this.

    Good luck Sharks.
