The Rugby League World Cup 2017 is being contested in in Australia and New Zealand at the end of this month.
Just like past cricket and rugby world cup events held in New Zealand, the tournament has been deemed a major event under the Major Events Managment Act.
To avoid ticket scalping concerns, the MEMA only allows for tickets to be sold at face value (i.e. their original sale price) or less, but not a dollar over.
Trade Me has taken the decision to not allow the sale of ANY tickets to Rugby League World Cup matches, even when offered at face value.
This is due to difficulties around ensuring tickets are being sold at the correct price.
This applies to all matches, whether they are being played in NZ or Australia.
Any such tickets listed on Trade Me will be removed by the Policing Team.
