Warriors to give free tickets to NRL season opener following Christchurch terror attack

The Warriors are giving away tickets to their NRL season opener against the Bulldogs today to give fans the opportunity to stand together following the Christchurch terror attack.

Fans will be able to get free tickets for the game at Mt Smart, which kicks off at 5pm.

“We are all devastated and in shock about what happened in Christchurch yesterday,” Warriors CEO Cameron George said.

“New Zealand is hurting. We are New Zealand’s team in the NRL and we want the public to join us this evening to acknowledge collectively those who have been affected by the heinous act in our country."

“Let’s use tonight’s match as an opportunity for the New Zealand public to stand shoulder to shoulder.”

“Given it’s game day, there’s a limited number of tickets still available,” George added.

Large crowds and more getting more viewers than a Super Rugby derby are some of the other perks the club is enjoying.
