The way the website reads, it reserves the permission to face cancellation of tickets etc etc......... I wonder why they allow the purchase to go through knowing you are not a local on the basis of the last sentence below ?

WELLINGTON & DUNEDIN REGIONAL PRESALE:

Customers who live within the Wellington & Dunedin Region have the opportunity to purchase TEST MATCH tickets before tickets go on sale on to the general public on Monday the 3rd of December 2012.

Tickets are available online or at the following regional Ticketek Agencies*

Wellington: Michael Fowler Centre
Dunedin: Regent Theatre

*Customers address must fall within the Wellington and Otago regions or face the cancellation of their tickets

Odd isn't it.
I guess if Ticketek cancel your tickets and give a full refund then you haven't lost anything by giving it a go.

... other than the peace of mind that the tickets are sorted..............

I first read it that only those who are buying at site need a local address etc, hence the reason I was able to buy was because I have bought on line... however the message on the website seems to state differently

Oh well..... I shall sit tight and wait

Could not see a contact number/E mail address on the website, anyone got contact details other than on line ?

Bearing in mind Dec 3rd is next week.......... I would have thought modern technology would have stopped those non locals from booking full stop ?

You can't help feeling that stopping the purchase by using the billing address of the card would be quite easy to put in :?

especially as it asks for region...... you put in United Kingdom .... and it still allows purchase...... I would hope the warning is just that and nothing more ;)
