Alama Ieremia predicts Apia Park sellout for Blues v Reds match in June

The Blues are expected to announce on Monday that their June 2 fixture will be staged in Apia. The match comes in collaboration with Michael Jones and the Samoan government, and is likely to see some form of fee paid to the teams involved.

Last year the Fijian government stumped up $1.6 million to lure the Chiefs and Crusaders to Suva. Its success will see both teams return to play the same match in Fiji on May 19.
