It used to sell out in minutes, but by mid-December less than 4 per cent of tickets for the Wellington Sevens have been sold.
Tickets for the two-day event, which is being played at Westpac Stadium on January 28 and 29, went on sale in September.
In its heyday, the event sold out in a matter of minutes but it is understood that by mid-December only 1300 tickets had been sold for the tournament, despite the stadium having a capacity of 34,500.
I remember those days. The queues at Post Offices, the impatiently trying to order online before the system went down. That is when it was a great fun event.
