Rugby World Cup 2019 Extended Trading Hours

5 Sep 2019

On 28th August Parliament passed the “Sale and Supply of Alcohol (Rugby World Cup 2019 Extended Trading Hours) Amendment Bill 2019” by majority vote, with only the Green Party voting against it.

This is a pragmatic and sensible decision from the Government, and special recognition must go to MPs David Seymour and Nikki Kaye in particular for championing this issue, and to Minister Andrew Little for introducing the Bill.

This amendment will allow licensed venues to be able to show live Rugby World Cup 2019 Games that would otherwise be outside of their normal trading hours.

If you are planning to or still deciding on whether you will screen live RWC games at your venue, Hospitality NZ have produced a RWC 2019 Kit with templates so you know what you need to do for any that fall outside of your normal trading hours.
