Saturday's All Blacks v Wallabies Test at Eden Park will be watched by 47,000 fans, thanks to the addition of 2000 temporary seats to the stadium’s capacity.

ARFU Marketing Manager, Grant McKenzie, said with the ground sold out, and an earlier then usual start to the Test, fans were encouraged to get to the ground early.

“With a 5:30pm kick off and a full stadium I would strongly advise fans to get arrive early and to use public transport to get to Eden Park,” said McKenzie.

“Gates open at 3pm and with some excellent pre-match entertainment planned it is worthwhile being at the ground in plenty of time to make the most of what promises to be a great occasion.”
