Bumper crowds expected at Eden Park

Latest Rugby League News | Monday February 27 2012 12:41


The Eden Park double header is on track to reap big rewards for the Warriors and Black Caps.

The Warriors open their NRL campaign against Manly on Sunday, just hours after the Black Caps play South Africa in the final ODI.

Eden Park Marketing Manager Tracy Morgan says they could have 70,000 fans across the two matches.

Morgan says they're expecting more at the cricket than last week's Twenty20.

Morgan says 25,000 is a realistic target for the cricket, while the Warriors are a good chance of selling out.

The 4,000 discounted double-header tickets have all been sold, but 400 more have been released.
