*This representative will also uplift wristbands for their competing athletes who have recently turned 12 with birthdays between October 2021 and January 2022. These competing athletes will also need to have their allocated wrist band always attached to their wrist – to enter the venue from Thursday to Sunday.

Competing athletes who are 12 years 3 months and over: All remaining competing athletes who are 12 years 3 months and over at the time of the event will need to present their My Vaccine Pass at the gate entrance to receive their allocated wrist band and be able to access the venue from Thursday to Sunday.

There will be extra security at the gate due to COVID-19 restrictions, which will likely cause a delay in entering the grounds.  Due to this we encourage everyone (who is planning to be at the stadium for the opening ceremony) that is able, to come to the stadium on Thursday between 2-6pm to have their vaccine passes verified. This will allow you to use the fast-pass entry for the rest of the games, thus much quicker entry on Friday morning. If you have pre-ordered your passes (or if you’re an athlete over 12 years 3 months) you will need to get your wristband from your team manager before having your vaccine pass verified.

If you have not yet purchased your tickets, you will need to wait until Friday morning to purchase and verify your pass.

Parking: Car parking is available at the venue.

Spectators: Tickets are available to purchase at the gate.

  • Adult (15+ years) one day pass – $7
  • Adults (15+ years) 3 day pass – $18
  • Children under the age of 15 are free

Merchandise: A range of Colgate Games Merchandise will be available to purchase at the venue. This includes the Event T-Shirts (stock is limited so pre-order to secure your size!). Find out more on our merchandise page here.

Event t-shirts: 2022 South Island Colgate Games pre-ordered t-shirts will be available to collect from the merchandise table at the event venue.

If you were unable to pre-order a t-shirt, or your size was out of stock, you can try on one of our sample t-shirts for size over the Colgate Games weekend, and then purchase as part of our second online pre-order.

The second online pre-order is open now (access here) and will close at 7pm, Monday 17 January. The second pre-order t-shirts will be sent to you directly and we anticipate these will be delivered in mid-February.
