THREE MINUTES after it became available, tickets for the 2010 New Zealand Sevens were snapped up be excited Sevens fans. Organisers ascribed this to the improved technology applied to ticket sales this time around.
NZI Sevens General Manager, Steve Walters said “Although tickets may have sold out this morning, we hope fans will see there are still a number of ways to embrace the 2010 NZI Sevens.”
Organisers were further encouraged by the fact that demand and popularity for the tournament remains, even during these slower economic times.
Mr Walters continued: “It’s a great tribute to the tournament that fans continue to love the great sports and entertainment event we have here in Wellington.
The 2009 tournament showed many fans will venture into Wellington even without a ticket. With the street parade, big screens in the city centre and many events going on, visitors and Wellingtonians continue to embrace the excitement and atmosphere that the event creates.”
The NZI Sevens will be held at Westpac Stadium on February 5th and 6th 2010. Wellington will be the third leg of the 2009/2010 IRB Sevens World Series.
