Moana Pasifika to Play Historic Home Game in Samoa

On Friday, 14 April 2023, Moana Pasifika will make history when it takes the field to face the Queensland Reds in its first-ever Super Rugby Pacific game played in Apia, Samoa.

“Finally, our dream to play on Samoan soil will come true. It has been our ambition from the very start to bring the competition to our home nations,” says Moana Pasifika chair Savae Sir Michael Jones.

“To play in front of our Samoan people and fans is a very special moment for Moana Pasifika as our people and our heritage are our inspiration and motivation. Our players can’t wait to play “at home” in front of family, aiga our Samoan community and make them proud, displaying everything that is unique and special about Pacific Island rugby as we take on the Reds.”

The game will surely be exciting as the Moana Pasifika side brings a wealth of experience and talent to the pitch. The team has players such as Samoan-born Miracle Fai’ilagi, and rugby great Samoan Christian Lealiifano who has surpassed an incredible 150 games in Super Rugby. A further 14 Moana Pasifika players were in the winning Manu Samoa squad in the Pacific Nations Cup (PNC) last year.

Fans and families are encouraged to secure their tickets early to avoid disappointment as tickets are limited.

Tickets will go on sale next week and are available at all Digicel retail stores in Samoa. Ticket prices start from $10 tala.
