By Community | December 17, 2018
In a New Zealand first, five local sporting codes in Canterbury have joined forces to create the Red and Black Sports Pack. This unique ticket offer combines 21 games from all five codes, across ten months of the year.
The teams involved are the Canterbury Rugby Mitre 10 Cup team, Canterbury Kings Cricket team, Canterbury Dragons football team, Canterbury Rams Basketball team, and, thanks to the support of Canterbury Hockey, the national men’s and women’s Vantage Black Sticks hockey teams, making this the ultimate package for a Canterbury sports fan.
“We are thrilled to be part of this innovative product,” said Canterbury Cricket CEO Jeremy Curwin. “We get to put our brand alongside some other fantastic Canterbury sports teams as well as the Commonwealth Games Gold medallist Black Sticks women and Silver medallist Black Sticks men. That is exciting for us and an awesome opportunity for sports fans in this province.”
Canterbury Football CEO Julian Bowden agreed, saying Canterbury boasted some of the most passionate sports fans in the world, so this was a product that made sense for this region: “We love our sport here in Canterbury, so the Red and Black Sports Pack will make a fantastic Christmas gift for so many people. To have the chance to see 21 quality sporting fixtures across ten months, at just NZ$249 for an adult and a child, is such a great deal and would set 2019 up to be the ultimate year of entertainment for any sports fan.”
For NZ$249, the Red and Black Sports Pack includes an adult and child ticket to the following fixtures:
- 5 x Mitre 10 Cup Canterbury Rugby games
- 5 x BK Super Smash 20/20 Canterbury Kings Cricket games
- 5 x ISPS Handa Premiership Canterbury Dragons Football games
- 3 x FIH Pro League Vantage Black Sticks Hockey games (all double-headers, with both the Men’s and Women’s teams playing)
- 3 x Sal’s National Basketball League Canterbury Rams games
Tickets are transferable, making it a great Christmas present for the whole family. With only 200 Red and Black Sports Packs available up until 20 December, Canterbury sports fans will need to get in quick!
