Rugby fans at Eden Park can help set a selfie record during Saturday's All Blacks vs Wallabies game.

Two world records could be set at the Bledisloe Cup rugby test match at Auckland's Eden Park this Saturday.

The All Blacks will take on the Wallabies in their final home game of the year; if they win, they will have 18 consecutive test match victories - a world record among tier one rugby nations.

The second record will be less of a challenge. Eden Park's commercial manager Nick Sautner is urging fans to "help set a world record number of selfies taken within a stadium".

"Any number of selfies will be the record, as this record has never been set," he said.

The selfies - hashtagged with #ASBfanwall - would be collated into a huge collage to be on permanent display at Gate H of Eden Park.

Eden Park chief executive Guy Ngata said the selfie fanwall would help "permanently stamp the 2016 season in history".

"Being able to spot your photo on the wall every time you head to a game at New Zealand's largest stadium is not an opportunity to be missed." 

Sautner said that the selfie fanwall would go ahead even if the All Blacks lose.

"In that case it will serve as a reminder of what could have been," he said.
