Yes!

It has just been announced that the All Whites' Intercontinental World Cup play-off match later in the year will take place in Wellington on Wednesday 20th November.

We'd prefer a weekend match, but beggars can't be choosers. Wild horses won't keep us from this match, and we will be in the market for tickets as soon as they go on sale.

We are absolutely delighted that Wellington has got the nod over Auckland. The Ring of Fire has become the spiritual home of football in New Zealand, and even on a midweek night, the city will be buzzing.

If someone has an invitation to a corporate box that they'd like to send our way, please feel free to get in touch. We were there when the All Whites won their way to South Africa, and we look forward to another magnificent spectacle in mid-November when a place in Brazil is on the line.

You should buy Nix season Passes KS.... Preferential bookings for this match part of the deal!

Bloody excited about this... Will never forget "that Night" at the Cake Tin four years ago. An atmosphere that New Zealand Sport has not seen before or since, but will hopefully be replicated on November!

I can't get to Welly often enough to use them Jeff. But I stood in the White Noise Zone in 2009, and will be doing likewise, unless some kind soul invites me to one of those dens of iniquity slightly higher up; I live in hope!

I would suggest foregoing the Canapes and Pinot Gris on offer would be a small price to pay for being Right amongst it!

I think an expedition from the north will be organised by my indoor soccer team.

This will be an event that must not be missed.

Unfortunately it will be fifo but still...

@ QH; it would be rude not to come, but a night spend celebrating in Wellington ought to be factored in to the equation.

Good idea, party on down till dawn, off to koru lounge for kip then first flight back to sucks for another day being a corporate Titan.

Even better; an lunchtime flight to Wanganui, car trip to Paraparaumu, train to the stadium then back to my place for a kip, with a pitstop or two on the way
