The Super Rugby Pacific decider will be played in front of a packed house at Auckland's Eden Park.


More than 40,000 tickets were snapped on Tuesday for the final on Saturday (kick-off 7.05pm) at the 'Garden of Eden', featuring the higher-seeded Blues host the neighbouring Chiefs.

The Blues' Flicket site crashed temporarily on Tuesday due to demand, before the team announced Eden Park, which has an official capacity of 50,000 for football codes, had sold out.


It will be the Blues' fourth straight home match, after defeating Fijian Drua 36-5 in the quarterfinals and ACT Brumbies 34-20 in the semifinals.


The Blues have won 15 straight matches at Eden Park over the last two seasons, including a 31-17 win over the Chiefs in the final round of the regular season on June 1.


The Chiefs have not beaten the Blues at Eden Park since pre-Covid-19, with their last victory coming in the 2020 Super Rugby season opener, 37-29, before that competition was cancelled due to the global pandemic.
