The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua are anticipating a sold-out crowd this Saturday when they take on the Chiefs in the final round of the Super Rugby Pacific.

As of Friday last week, close to 5,000 tickets have been sold.

All platinum tickets which cost $145 have been booked while the $95 tickets are selling very fast.

The silver and bronze tickets which cost $35 and $20 are still available.

The $20 tickets can only be purchased at the Lautoka City Council.

Drua CEO Brian Thorburn says given the popularity of the Chiefs in Fiji, he does not doubt that it will be another sell-out, and they will do everything they can to safely increase capacity at the venue.

He says the Chiefs are one of the leading sides in the competition and currently sit fourth on the ladder.

Thorburn says with a squad featuring 12 All Blacks and names like Pita Gus Sowakula, Brad Weber, Brodie Retallick and All Black Captain Sam Cane, they will be vying for a win to secure a home quarter-final, but the Drua will be out to spoil their party with the support of the vocal locals.

The Drua will meet the Chiefs at 3pm Saturday at Churchill Park in Lautoka.

In other matches, Moana Pasifika will face the Force at 7.05pm tomorrow, the Crusaders will play the Reds at 7.35pm Friday, Moana Pasifika will take on the Brumbies at 7.05pm Saturday, the Waratahs will meet the Blues at 9.45pm Saturday, the Force will face the Hurricanes at 12am Sunday, and the Highlanders will play the Rebels at 4m Sunday.
