Top of the table clash a sell-out

5:43 pm on 8 May 2009

The Chiefs v Hurricanes Super 14 rugby match at Waikato Stadium on Saturday has sold out of its 25,000-seat capacity.

The last time Waikato Stadium sold out a Super 14 match was in 2004 when the Chiefs took on the Brumbies.

People attending the match are encouraged to get to the game early to avoid queues at the gates, which open at half past five, with a curtain raiser match between St Peter's School First XV and Church College of New Zealand First XV being held on the main field shortly after the gates open.

The kick-off for the Chiefs v Hurricanes game is 25 to eight.
