PNGRFL CEO Reatau Rau said the tickets will be on sale from 9am tomorrow (Tuesday)at Brian Bell and Foodmart in Lae and Andersons at Eriku.
He said the cost per ticket is K50.
He added the cost covers everybody from young to old. “Every person that enters the ground, whether a child or adult must purchase a ticket. There is no separate price for children,” Rau added.
He said hosting the Country week game in Lae will be expensive and the K50 price per ticket is fair. “This is the first appearance for the SP Hunters in Lae and taking this Intrust Super Cup game out of Port Moresby will be costly. Therefore we believe K50 per person is affordable and will at least cover these costs,” Rau said.
Rau said those companies/organisations wishing to purchase tickets in bulk can contact the reception at Prima on 4721166 for more details.
He said there are security features on the tickets to prevent counterfeiting and abuse. “The tickets have security features on them and will be scanned on entry so there is no space for cheating,” he said.
He urged the public to buy tickets early as there will be no sales on game day on Sunday.
Gates at the Rugby League grounds will open at 9am on Sunday July 22, 2018.
The 1st game is a Digicel Cup Rnd 16 match between Lae Snax Tigers and Enga Mioks which kicks off at 12.15pm.
The main game between SP Hunters and Norths Devils for the Get In The Game Country Week kicks off at 3pm.
Both games will be televised ‘live’ by Digicel TV.
