Hamilton - Tickets to Saturday's Super Rugby final between the Chiefs and Durban-based Sharks sold out on Wednesday within hours of going on sale.

Fans queued for hours through a cold night to be near the front of the queue when tickets for the match at the 25 000-seat Waikato Stadium were made available from 08:00 local time.

When ticket booths opened, the queue stretched more than 300 metres. More than 1,500 tickets sold in the first 20 minutes and by 09:30 only 2 000 remained.

Tickets that went on sale to online buyers were also snapped up quickly for the first-ever Super Rugby final in Hamilton.

      Tom you idiot, the city has a population of under 200,000. Pretty decent effort i reckon.

    "Super 15 final tickets soldout" sold-out, or sold out and not soldout. Now delete my comment and correct your errors as you usually do. Bad editing!

      Andy I feel for you. Why cant you just read the article without complaining. Don't you have anything else to do except looking for spelling errors?

    What about the white card incident from the chiefs/saders game? Has there been any news on the outcome? Has it even been forwarded to the committee?

      david.s.duncan.1 - 2012-08-01 11:24

      They looked into it briefly and decided that nothing untoward had occured so have not taken action. I don't mind, just makes the Sharks potential victory that much sweeter.
