The Super Rugby final in Hamilton sold out today with fans snapping up the remaining tickets in two hours when they went on public sale.

Chiefs' supporters braved freezing conditions last night, queuing outside Waikato Stadium to get a chance of tickets that went on sale at 8am.

The Chiefs play South African side the Sharks in the final. It's the first time Hamilton has hosted the title match and the public reacted accordingly.

Chiefs' season members and sponsors snapped up 8000 tickets in the last two days during their early purchase window and now all 25,100 tickets have been sold.

Sean Austin, Chiefs Commercial Manager said "We are delighted our fans wanted to be part of our first Super Rugby final and are sorry that we could not meet the huge demand.

"We are grateful for the faith that our season members and sponsors, have shown. They are a part of our family and have backed us prior to the beginning of the season. To have such a big up-take from them during their purchase window was a great reward to them."

The Chiefs have recorded a 97 per cent increase in ticket sales this season on the back of their impressive results that saw them win 13 games in their road to the final.

What do you make of the Blues signing Jimmy Cowan?

It's a great move. His experience is needed.

The jury's still out for me. Let's wait and see.

It's a desperate move. Respectfully, Cowan is past it.

The Blues have bigger worries than halfback.
