Magpies tickets for those affected by Cyclone Gabrielle

Battle of the Bays

Free tickets to watch the Magpies play in Napier are available for cyclone-affected people.

Hawke’s Bay Rugby, with support from match day sponsor One NZ, have banded together to open the gates to the Magpies v Bay of Plenty Battle of the Bays game at 4:35pm on Saturday 9th of September – Free of charge.

Wairoa’s Recovery Team is thrilled with the opportunity for local people and extends a big thanks to the Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union.

To take advantage of the free ticket offer, please email Rupene Amato at the Wairoa Recovery Office on

A reminder, the first selection of the free tickets is prioritised for those people who have been affected by Cyclone Gabrielle. Depending on demand, a bus may be chartered to ensure all whānau can get to the game.

Over the coming weeks, Hawke’s Bay Rugby will also be announcing entertainers who will perform live pre-game. The event will include lots of giveaways, competitions, activities and engagement to help entertain what is expected to be a capacity crowd.
