Victorian AFL supporters starved of football action this week due to the split-bye round will have the chance to throw their support behind Melbourne?s only rugby league team thanks to a unique special ticket offer.
Melbourne Storm is offering a special discount ticket offer to all AFL and AFL club members this week in a bid to fill Olympic Park as the Storm hosts the New Zealand Warriors this Saturday night (7.30pm).
The Storm is aiming to capitalise on the AFL?s mid-season bye round by offering this exclusive ticket offer to those supporters not usually found at Storm home games.
All AFL or AFL club members will gain entry for just $10 ? almost half price ? upon showing their membership cards at the gate this Saturday night. Similarly children eligible for this offer will gain entry for just $2.50 and concession members for $5.50.
?This is a great opportunity for the Melbourne public to show their support for their state seeing as this weekend?s match is Melbourne versus New Zealand,? Storm captain and Kiwi international Stephen Kearney said.
?With the AFL having this week off in Melbourne it?s the perfect opportunity for those ALF supporters to come and check out the Storm - every Victorian AFL supporter?s ?second? club.
?We?ve always said we want to co-exist with AFL here in Melbourne and that?s what we?re aiming to do, this week is a chance for some of their (AFL) supporters to co-exist with us.?
