Cape Town - The All Blacks have slipped into Chicago virtually unnoticed for their historic clash with the United States.

According to the Stuff website, the world's most successful rugby team has not proven newsworthy in Chicago with none of the city's main media outlets featuring them, only five days from their game against the US Eagles.

Just three local journalists reportedly turned up to the team's first media opportunity.

The massive Soldier Field stadium is officially sold out, meaning a crowd of 61 500 will attend the match at the home of the Chicago Bears NFL team.

The USA and All Blacks will clash on Saturday, November 1 at 23:30 SA time.
