Fans across New Zealand have snapped up 25100 tickets to the Super Rugby final between the Chiefs and the Sharks at Waikato Stadium this Saturday.
Chiefs' supporters were desperate to secure tickets to the Chiefs v Sharks match and were queuing outside Waikato Stadium since 2am this morning.
Tickets to the general public went on sale at 8am this morning and were sold out in less than two hours.
Sean Austin, Chiefs Commercial Manager said "We are delighted our fans wanted to be part of our first Super Rugby final and are sorry that we could not meet the huge demand."
Chiefs’ season members and sponsors snapped up 8000 tickets in the last two days during their early purchase window.
"We are grateful for the faith that our season members and sponsors, have shown. They are a part of our family and have backed us prior to the beginning of the season. To have such a big up-take from them during their purchase window was a great reward to them."
The Chiefs have recorded a 97% increase in ticket sales this season and the team has won 13 games in their road to the final.
