Hamilton will host a one-off rugby Test between the world champion All Blacks and Tonga next year ahead of Rugby World Cup 2019.
Three-time Rugby World Cup winners the All Blacks will clash with Tonga on Saturday 7 September 2019 at FMG Stadium Waikato. The match sees a return to the tradition of afternoon rugby, with a 2.35pm kick off.
This match will be the All Blacks’ final hit-out before they travel to Japan for rugby’s global showpiece tournament – and their opportunity to become the first team in Rugby World Cup history to claim the William Webb Ellis Trophy three consecutive times.
Fans who buy a ticket to the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament in Hamilton in January will also have an opportunity to purchase tickets for the All Blacks Test ahead of public sales.
Two ways for fans to guarantee a ticket to the All Blacks v Tonga Test match before public sales are; either purchase a Chiefs’ season membership and HSBC NZ Sevens package or, purchase All Blacks Hospitality or All Blacks Tours packages. For more ticketing information click here.
