The first ever test match between the Kangaroos and Mate Ma'a Tonga will be played in a sold-out Mt Smart Stadium.

The NRL has announced that following a final release of tickets this week, Saturday's test match has this morning sold out. The capacity for Mt Smart Stadium is around 25,600.

"The level of interest in this game has been staggering so it will be great to see the house full sign up outside Mt Smart Stadium this Saturday," NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.

"Many people worked very hard to make this game a reality and the result will be no doubt a real highlight for the international game and for the game overall."

Last week's test between the Kiwis and Kangaroos at the same venue attracted less than 13,000 fans.
