New Zealand’s biggest summer event is back on Waitangi Weekend, Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 February 2016! The NRL Auckland Nines is the place to be as all 16 NRL teams and 288 star players descend on Eden Park for this two-day, nine-per-side knock-out tournament extravaganza. League legend Billy Slater is targeting the 2016 NRL Auckland Nines tournament as his comeback, saying “I have always wanted to play a Nines tournament because I know it would suit my style of play.”  2016 will bring the stars closer to you, with the teams warming up side line. Brace yourself for plenty of exciting on-field entertainment, where the games are shorter; the gaps are wider and the action is faster! The carnival atmosphere inside Auckland’s 46,000 capacity Eden Park is unmatched anywhere!

  • All 16 NRL Clubs together in Auckland
  • Featuring 288+ star players
  • 31 action packed games
  • 9 players per team, 9 minute halves
  • NZ $2.6 million dollars + in prize money
  • Over 90,000 fans expected over 2 days



I love the whole tournament – all 16 clubs in our home city is awesome! I love the colour and passion of the fans who come out to support us. The noise from our Warriors fans in the stadium when we run out onto the field is nothing I’ve experienced before!
