Description

These are the real, actual Eden Park rugby goalposts as seen in hundreds of millions of living rooms over many years including New Zealand's victory in the first ever Rugby World Cup in 1987.

At 18 metres tall, these all steel goal posts have stood through thousands of tries, penalties and conversions including Michael Jones famous diving try in the '87 World Cup final, and long before that the drama of the final test against the Springboks in 1981.

The Eden Park Trust is gifting all proceeds from this auction to the Christchurch Earthquake Relief Fund.

The goals are suitable for use on a public sports field or would be ideal for a rugby club, collectors of memorabilia, or just a group of mates who want the real deal on their local field.

If you miss out on the goals themselves, come along and join in at the Eden Park Charity Public Open Day on 10 October, where all the proceeds raised will be gifted to a range of local and national charities. See the parts of Eden Park normally off-limits to the public, and be a part of history.

Former All Black and Auckland Rugby goal-kicker Grant Fox says he'd buy the goals himself for such a great cause, if it weren't for the neighbours kicking up about the 18 metre uprights on the front lawn. You can hear Grant reminisce about the goalposts more here: http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/canterbury-earthquake/57337/eden-park-goalposts-to-be-auctioned-for-quake-fund

N.B. Purchaser must collect posts from Eden Park between 30 October and 20 November, where they will be in flat storage. Purchaser will require a HIAB equipped truck. (The uprights may need to be cut in half (to 9 metres) to be more practical for moving by truck. Sale does not include heavy concrete feet which hold the goals in the ground. You will need an engineer to ensure goals are safely installed at their new home as each post weighs 700kgs when fully assembled.
