Tickets for next month’s Prime Ministers XIII Test match between PNG and Australia in Port Moresby will go on sale tomorrow.
PNG Rugby Football League CEO Reatau Rau (pictured) said the tickets will be on sale from 9am tomorrow at all Ticket Mastas outlets and online.
The cost per ticket is Grandstand – K120, West Wing – K80, East Stand – K50, North Stand – K30 and South Stand – K30.
“The ticket prices are the same as those charged during the three World Cup games played in Port Moresby last year,” Rau said.
He said the Prime Minister’s XIII match will now be an official ‘Test’ match.
“This game has been sanctioned by the Rugby League International Federation as a Test match between Australia and PNG,” Rau said.
He added the game has been scheduled to be played after the NRL, QRL and Super League seasons which should see the best players selected for both sides.
“We will see the best players representing Australia and PNG in the Prime Minister’s XIII Test clash next month which justifies the cost per ticket charged,” Rau said.
He urged the public to buy tickets early to avoid disappointment.
“There will be no ticket sales on game day,” Rau said.
Gates at Oil Search National Football Stadium open at 11am on Saturday (October 6).
Details on when the PNG and Australian sides will be named and their travel itinerary will be made known next week.
The 1st game on Saturday October 6, 2018 at 12.30pm will be an Under 16 fixture between PNG and NSW.
This will be followed by the Oil Search PNG Orchids up against Australian Jillaroos at 2.15pm.
The Prime Ministers XIII ‘Test’ between PNG and Australia kicks off at 4.30pm.
