More than 30,000 tickets sold for All Blacks matchup at Soldier Field

BOULDER, Colo. – More than half of the 61,500-seat Soldier Field has been accounted for since tickets for the USA Eagles’ match against the New Zealand All Blacks went on sale to the general public Monday.

Nearly 20,000 tickets were purchased June 13 by fans who registered on the website for preferred seating opportunities, while MasterCard holders had access to tickets June 14.

Though there are plenty of seats remaining for what will be the highest-attended international rugby match on the continent, tickets are going fast and are not expected to be available by the time July hits.

“We are very pleased with the tremendous interest in the match and hope that those fans who want to join us November 1 don’t wait too long, as we have a limited number of tickets remaining after just one day of sales,” USA Rugby Chief Executive Officer Nigel Melville said.

“Monday was a great testament to the rising interest in the sport, and our match will be one that no sports fan will want to miss.”

The All Blacks will visit the United States for an international match for the first time since 1980, when an exhibition was held against the Eagles in San Diego, Calif. The Eagles have only met the two-time and reigning IRB Rugby World Cup champions three times since their inception more than 100 years ago.

    I'm a kiwi living here in the US, I can't wait to be at Soldier Field for the game. Yes, NZ will probably win by a decent margin but I know for sure the Eagles will make them work for every point. This Test will do wonders for the game in the US, by playing the best team in the world Eagles can only get better.

    Interesting comments: Even if most of the tickets sold were to All Blacks fans what does that tell you about the excitement of playing in Chicago and against the Eagles. I'm coming over from NZ with my 3 kids and yeah, its costly travelling half way around the world. But what an experience. We have professional rugby week in week out in our part of the world so for the All Blacks to be playing in the USA and to have 20-30,000 kiwi's supporting I think you are very fortunate. Good luck to both teams. It will be a wonderful spectacle and will help grow the game into new and exciting markets.
