Victorian AFL supporters starved of football action this week due to the split-bye round will have the chance to throw their support behind Melbourne�s only rugby league team thanks to a unique special ticket offer.
Melbourne Storm is offering a special discount ticket offer to all AFL and AFL club members this week in a bid to fill Olympic Park as the Storm hosts the New Zealand Warriors this Saturday night (7.30pm).
The Storm is aiming to capitalise on the AFL�s mid-season bye round by offering this exclusive ticket offer to those supporters not usually found at Storm home games.
All AFL or AFL club members will gain entry for just $10 � almost half price � upon showing their membership cards at the gate this Saturday night. Similarly children eligible for this offer will gain entry for just $2.50 and concession members for $5.50.
�This is a great opportunity for the Melbourne public to show their support for their state seeing as this weekend�s match is Melbourne versus New Zealand,� Storm captain and Kiwi international Stephen Kearney said.
�With the AFL having this week off in Melbourne it�s the perfect opportunity for those ALF supporters to come and check out the Storm - every Victorian AFL supporter�s �second� club.
�We�ve always said we want to co-exist with AFL here in Melbourne and that�s what we�re aiming to do, this week is a chance for some of their (AFL) supporters to co-exist with us.�
