Do you love sitting on your favourite seat to watch Blues games?
Now you can bring that seat to the game and enjoy the atmosphere of watching your team live at the home of rugby, Eden Park.
The Blues and Eden Park have teamed up to bring you the BYO Seat Zone. Around 300 seats in the East Stand have been removed so that fans can bring their favourite seat to the game. A limited number of tickets for the BYO Seat Zone will be available at all 7 Blues home games at Eden Park this season.
“This season we’re introducing a number of new experiences and opportunities for fans in stadium on match day. The BYO Seat Zone is the first to roll out at our opening game against the Crusaders on February 16. We hope fans will have a lot of fun with the concept and that the zone encourages a party atmosphere” says Robyn Rowley, GM Fan Engagement.
Eden Park is offering fans who post photos from the Blues BYO Seat Zone the chance to win the best seats in the house for the Blues last round robin match. To be in to win the best seats – in one of the Park’s corporate suites with a second-to-none view of the action, post photos using the hashtag #BluesBYOSeat and tag @edenparknz
Eden Park CEO Nick Sautner says “New Zealand’s national stadium delivers memorable experiences and brings Kiwis together to witness some of our country’s most memorable sporting moments. We’re looking forward to seeing patrons enjoy a new kind of experience at Eden Park in the Blues BYO Seat Zone.”
Tickets for the BYO Seat Zone are $20. A condition of sale is that fans must bring their own seat. It could be a folding deck chair, a bean bag or, if bunch of friends want to get together and bring an old sofa, that’s perfect.
