One of the biggest sporting clashes on the Australian calendar is coming to Wellington. The St Kilda Saints will take on the Sydney Swans in a historic game of AFL football on Anzac Day, April 25th. The game will be the first ever AFL clash played outside of Australia as part of the premiership season and will form part of the Anzac Day activities to honour the servicemen and women who have given their lives to protecting both great countries.
St Kilda is a club steeped in history as one of the inaugural AFL teams and will celebrate its 140th birthday in 2013. Led by captain Nick Riewoldt, the Saints will be looking to defeat the reigning AFL premiers in this historic clash.
Tickets are on sale through Ticketek now.
