Christchurch rugby test sold out

6:43 am on 16 May 2012

The All Blacks-Ireland test in Christchurch next month has sold out.

Most of the 17,500 seats available at the redeveloped AMI Stadium at Addington were sold in the pre-public sale offer that went to the local rugby community, while the remaining tickets were snapped up in a couple of hours.

The June 16th clash will be the first test in Christchurch for two years.

Although effectively sold-out, the NZRU is still investigating options for additional seats with a larger temporary stand at the west end of the new stadium.

There are still tickets available for the Irish tests at Eden Park and Hamilton.
