Eight and a half thousand rugby sevens tickets went on sal' />

Tickets to Wellington's biggest party sold out in a record three minutes this morning.

Eight and a half thousand rugby sevens tickets went on sale at 9am.

Tickets have already gone on sale on Trade Me with one set of four attracting 20 bids, reaching more than $900.

Organisers say they will be cracking down on anyone trying to make a profit from the tickets and anyone caught on-selling them will run the risk of having them cancelled.

The tournament is being held at Westpac Stadium on February 5 and 6 and has sold out every year for the past eight years.
