Vodafone Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah today confirmed the club’s 2014 NRL home games will be split between Eden Park, Wellington’s Westpac Stadium and Mount Smart Stadium.

In a major initiative he announced the club would significantly step up its use of Eden Park.

The country’s biggest stadium staged the Vodafone Warriors’ first home game in each of the past three seasons but will be used for three home matches next year.

This year’s ‘Capital Clash’ in Wellington was the first time the Vodafone Warriors had ever staged a home game outside Auckland; the club will again play there in 2014 while the remaining eight regular season matches are all scheduled to be played at Mount Smart Stadium.

“While we’re still waiting for the 2014 draw to be confirmed the likelihood is our three games at Eden Park and the match at Westpac Stadium will all be played in the early part of season,” he said.

“On the back of the inaugural NRL Auckland Nines at Eden Park (February 15-16) we can create an exciting festival of football feel to the start of the year with big crowds getting along to the Nines, our three games there and also in Wellington.”

Eden Park Trust chief executive David Kennedy and Westpac Stadium chief executive Shane Harmon said the Vodafone Warriors provided a huge opportunity for their venues.

“We’ve been delighted with hosting the Vodafone Warriors in each of the past three years,” said Kennedy.

“They’ve attracted three crowds in excess of 30,000 to give us three of our biggest events at the stadium.

“With the NRL Auckland Nines also being played at Eden Park next year it’s clear rugby league is well-suited to the venue and has a proven ability to attract really big crowds. For us, it’s a natural progression to go to the next level.”
