League joins city's February sports feast

The Vodafone Warriors will play a pre-season game against the Penrith Panthers at Waikato Stadium on February 16.

The league game will be the only North Island trial for the season and will be a first chance for Warriors' fans to see new coach Matt Elliot and several new signings in action.

Waikato Stadium hosted the Warriors in 2009 for a pre-season match against the Melbourne Storm.

The Panthers are due to arrive in Hamilton on the Tuesday before the game and will be using local training facilities which have been a tick of approval.

Tickets for the Vodafone Warriors vs Panthers game will go on sale from November 5 from Ticketek.

Prices are $23 for an adult, $10 for a child and $55 for a family (two adults, two children).

Corporate hospitality is available.

February is looking to be an action-packed month of sports and events for Hamilton, with Waikato Stadium also the venue for Nitro Circus on February 6 and Seddon Park hosting a T20 cricket match between the Black Caps and England on February 12 and a one-dayer on February 17.
