Trafalgar Park is a sell out for tomorrow night's first ever All Blacks test in Nelson.

21,480 fans will be on hand to watch the home side play Argentina, with Trafalgar Park's capacity increased with an additional 14,872 temporary seats installed for the game.

The test is the All Blacks third in the Ruby Championship, after back-to-back wins against Australia to retain the Bledisloe Cup last month.

New Zealand Rugby Chief Executive Officer Steve Tew said the sell-out event set up the ideal backdrop to an historic occasion.

"It is a special occasion taking an All Blacks Test match to Nelson for the first time and we would like to congratulate the Tasman Rugby Union for their efforts in selling the match out," said Tew

Next week the All Blacks play South Africa in Wellington, in their last home test of the year.
