Blues and Chiefs to clash in grand final

Excitement is building as the Auckland Blues prepare to face the Waikato Chiefs in the Super Rugby Pacific Grand Final on Saturday, 22 June.


The highly anticipated match will take place at Eden Park, with gates opening at 5 pm and kickoff scheduled for 7:05 pm.


Tickets will be available for purchase starting at 9 am tomorrow.





The game promises to be an absolutely thrilling encounter, not only because it marks the end of the season but also due to the historical ties between the teams' coaches.


Blues coach Vern Cotter once mentored Chiefs coach Clayton McMillan during their time with the Bay of Plenty NPC team, adding a layer of personal rivalry to the match.


In a poignant moment for local fans, this game will be Akira Ioane’s final appearance at Eden Park.


Ioane, a stalwart of the Blues, has been a significant figure in the team’s lineup and his departure marks the end of an era.


Fans from the Hibiscus Coast and beyond are expected to flock to Eden Park to witness what promises to be a memorable showdown.
