Tickets are now on sale for the NRL and Super Rugby pre-season clash at council’s Sunshine Coast Stadium in February 2018 and there’s an added bonus to go into the draw to win a brand new scooter.
Three high-profile pre-season games have been locked in between the ACT Plus500 Brumbies and the Gallagher Chiefs from New Zealand on February 14 followed by two NRL pre-season trials on consecutive Saturdays - Canterbury Bulldogs against Canberra Raiders (February 17) and Gold Coast Titans against New Zealand Warriors (February 24).
Tourism, Sport and Major Events Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray said with tickets to the triple-header being released for sale on December 5 we are sure to break 2017’s pre-season game attendance record.
“We are really excited to be bringing three high-profile national level games to Sunshine Coast Stadium and couldn’t resist having a bit of fun with Christmas fast approaching,” Cr O’Pray said.
“We are expecting the Super Rugby squad to be boosted by seven current All Blacks, featuring stars Brodie Retallick, Damian McKenzie, Sam Cane, Nepo Laulala, Kane Hames, Nathan Harris and Anton Lienert-Brown.
“NRL fans won’t be disappointed as there will be a number of high profile names taking the field.
“Sunshine Coast Stadium will be gifting a brand new scooter with a year’s worth of registration to one lucky ticket-holder who purchases their pass to any pre-season game from December 5 to 20.
“While there are multiple ticket types available for purchase, every ticket holder will go into the draw to win a motor scooter just in time for Christmas.”
Tickets range from $12-$23 for general admission and $30-$40 for grandstand tickets with the option for fans to grab both NRLs games at a discount with the Ultimate League Legend deal.
For those who really love their footy, attractive hospitality packages and limited sponsorship opportunities remain but won’t last long.
