Super Rugby Pacific will celebrate the next generation of fans and players during Kids Round with special deals and free tickets making it easier than ever for families to attend matches during Round #4 of the 2023 season.
In New Zealand, a range of special Kids Round offers including a limited number of free tickets for kids will be available across the Hurricanes, Chiefs, Blues, and Highlanders home matches during Round #4 on 17-19 March.
In Australia, the ACT Brumbies and QLD Reds will also roll out special ticket offers for their respective home games.
All kids under 12 accompanied by a paying adult can redeem a free ticket to the Brumbies' clash with Moana Pasifika at GIO Stadium at 7.35 pm on Saturday 18 March.*
The Reds are offering 1000 free tickets for fans aged 15 and under and accompanied by a paying adult, to their showdown with the Fijian Drua at Suncorp Stadium at 3.00 PM Sunday, 19 March.*
Super Rugby Pacific Tournament Director, Matt Barlow said: “It’s awesome to be dedicating a round of Super Rugby Pacific to kids, they’re the future of rugby. It’s important to give young people the opportunity to support their team at home, while also celebrating them across the weekend through broadcast, and at-ground activities.”
New Zealand Rugby General Manager Professional Rugby & Performance, Chris Lendrum said, “Kids Round comes at a time when a lot of families across Aotearoa have had a difficult start to the year due to flooding followed and the effects of Cyclone Gabrielle. We hope Kids Round will provide kids and their families with the option of an entertaining afternoon or evening out at the rugby.”
Rugby Australia CEO Andy Marinos said, "Kids Round is a valuable opportunity to highlight and celebrate the pathways from our junior grassroots clubs through to the Super Rugby Pacific competition. Every player at the Brumbies, Reds, Waratahs, Rebels and Force started out as a kid kicking a ball around with their mates and dreaming of playing on the biggest stage."
As well as free and discounted tickets*, Super Rugby clubs will be putting on special activities, entertainment and engagement opportunities so young fans can get up and close to their heroes and experience the fun and thrill of an afternoon or night out with their families.
Kids Round kicks off on Friday 17 March at 7.05 PM when the Hurricanes go up against the NSW Waratahs at Sky Stadium in Wellington. On Saturday 18 March, the fast-starting Chiefs host the Melbourne Rebels at FMG Stadium Waikato where their second home game of the season will kick off at a family-friendly time of 4.35 PM.
