Tickets will go on sale at 10am AWST today for the epic Bledisloe Cup blockbuster at Optus Stadium in Perth on August 21.
Optus Stadium will host the only Bledisloe Cup fixture on home soil this year, with the Wallabies out to repeat their heroics of 2019 when they beat the All Blacks in record-breaking fashion.
Two years ago, a capacity crowd of 61,241 witnessed the Wallabies biggest win over the All Blacks in their history, in what was also the first Bledisloe Cup fixture played in Perth.
The game was secured for Perth by the State Government, through Tourism WA, in partnership with Rugby Australia.
Perth’s 2019 Bledisloe was a winner for tourism and the WA economy. Nearly 7,400 visitors from outside the State travelled to Perth for the occasion, spending more than $12.5 million.
Every Wallabies Test will be ad-free, live and on demand with extended coverage on Stan Sport and live, free-to-air on the Nine Network.
Rugby Australia Chief Executive Officer Andy Marinos said: “It’s going to be another special night on 21 August at the stunning Optus Stadium.
“The Bledisloe Cup is one of the biggest dates on the sporting calendar and we can’t wait to get back to Perth in August to host New Zealand.
“It was the hottest ticket in town in 2019 and it looks like another sell-out on the cards this year as well,” Marinos said.
Western Australia Tourism Minister David Templeman said: “The Bledisloe Cup is a proven drawcard for rugby fans to visit our State and I encourage them to act quickly to get their hands on tickets and book a longer stay in WA.
“As well as all the on-field sporting action and our vibrant city, they can enjoy more of what WA has to offer, including the warmth and wilderness of Australia’s North West, or the vineyards and forests of the Margaret River Region.
“We’re also expecting tickets to be snapped up by West Australians who are in the box seat for this match, with all the action right here in their own backyard for the only Bledisloe on Australian soil this year.”
Western Australia Sport and Recreation Minister Tony Buti said: “All eyes will be on our State when this great sporting rivalry returns to Perth.
“Based on the sell-out success of WA’s first Bledisloe Cup in 2019, I’m predicting a great response to the ticket release for this year’s WA game.
“The Bledisloe Cup is elite-level union at its finest and the opportunity to witness it in-person here in the West, will be a huge drawcard for aspiring young players, fans and families alike.”
Tickets are priced from $49 and available through www.wallabies.rugby.
