Central City fanzone gets a boost for rugby test match

On Thursday, the Governance Committee recommended to Council that it approves additional funding of up to $20,000 in relation to the All Blacks vs Argentina rugby test match on 8 September.

This includes a bus system on game day, where match ticket holders will be able to catch the buses for free, to and from the match.
