Ticket sales slow for last Carisbrook test

12:37 pm on 20 July 2011

Slow ticket sales for Friday night's All Black test match against Fiji in Dunedin are not worrying organisers.

The match will be the last time the All Blacks will play on the historic Carisbrook ground and will raise money for the Christchurch quake.

Otago Rugby Union marketing manager Doug McSweeney says about 12,000 tickets have so far been sold

He says most of those have been online sales to people from outside Dunedin, and he's confident locals will buy tickets in the next two days. He predicts a crowd of 20,000 people.

In future, rugby tests will be played at the city's new enclosed stadium.
