About Us

In 2018 Walco returned to Christchurch putting on a brilliant Sea Eagles – Warriors game. It was a fantastic event, with a great atmosphere and a massive vocal crowd.

Manly started strongly but a crucial injury and a strong Warriors performance meant that the Warriors came away with a convincing victory in front of a 17,357-strong crowd and took home the Broadhurst-Shelford Trophy.

Christchurch Airport, hotels, pubs, cafes and restaurants were also happy with the more than 5,000 visitors who came to Christchurch, injecting a significant boost into the local economy.

Thanks to all the Manly and Warriors fan who came along to make it such a great event!

Walco brought the Penrith Panthers to Christchurch in 2016 to play the Vodafone Warriors in front of a sold out crowd at AMI stadium proving that Cantabs love their league! We are doing it all again when the Manly Sea Eagles fly into Christchurch to play the Vodafone Warriors on June 9th, 2018 at AMI Stadium.
WALCO WAS THE EVENT COMPANY BEHIND THE SUCCESSFUL FIGHT FOR CHRISTCHURCH AND BATTLE OF THE REBUILD CHARITY BOXING EVENTS THAT HAD RAISED OVER $1,600,000 FOR LOCAL CHARITIES SINCE 2010. IN 2017 BOTH EVENTS WERE SOLD TO RESPECTED EVENT COMPANY TEAM EVENT. WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT ERA OF THESE AMAZING EVENTS.
