Get the Rugby World Cup for free when you join Spark or re-contract to selected Spark mobile or broadband plans


From today, Spark customers can get a free Rugby World Cup 2019 Tournament Pass when they purchase an eligible mobile or broadband plan.


Anyone on a pay monthly plan that costs $59.99 or above (either new or existing customers), who purchases a mobile device above the value of $199 on interest free payments (24-month term), will get a free Rugby World Cup 2019 Tournament Pass from Spark.


Or, anyone who signs up to a 12-month Unlimited broadband plan or a Rural Wireless 240GB Wireless plan (either new customers, or existing customers who are out of contract and sign up to a new 12-month term), will get a free Rugby World Cup 2019™ Tournament Pass.


Small business customers also stand to benefit, as the offer is available to business mobile customers who sign up to a pay monthly plan at $60.86 or above (either new or existing customers) on a 24 month term plan and to business broadband customers who sign up to an Unlimited Business Bundle or Unlimited Naked plan (either new customers, or existing customers who are out of contract and sign up to a new 12-month term).


These offers are in addition to the early bird standalone Spark Sport pricing that is already available to anyone in market ($79.99 for all 48 matches live and on demand, until 10 September 2019) – and are another way to ensure that as many New Zealanders as possible get to stream the Rugby World Cup.


Customers who have already purchased a Tournament Pass separately and want to take up this Spark offer can simply contact Spark Sport to cancel their existing pass and receive a refund – and then take up the Spark offer.


Joe Goddard, Tribe Lead for Spark Customer says, “We’re delighted to be able to offer Spark customers free Rugby World Cup with their Spark broadband or mobile plan. On top of the value-added services that we’re able to offer our customers, from Spotify on selected mobile plans, to Netflix and Lightbox with broadband plans, this gives Spark customers another great reason to be with us.


“As the licensed broadcaster of the tournament in New Zealand, Spark’s substantial investment in the event puts Spark in a unique position in how we are able to market our Tournament Passes and associate Spark products and services with the Rugby World Cup. We are thrilled therefore to be able to offer eligible Spark customers this very special deal.”


It is important to note that New Zealanders don’t have to be a Spark customer to get access to the Rugby World Cup. Anyone can purchase a Rugby World Cup Tournament Pass, irrespective of their mobile or broadband provider, directly from Spark Sport.

Oh hai Telecom


Spark is now just Telecom again. An incredibly arrogant vertically integrated telco.

Voucher code is still invalid .. 


Reach out to chat, will be able to reissue it. If your still having issues after that will look.


yes i did thanks.


Turns out there were 2 options. 1 is new user 7 day trial. the other is buy rugby world cup tournament.


Unfortunately I went the path of least resistance and went down the 7 day trial path and the code was invalid.


Eventually chat figured out that I needed to choose the straight and narrow path of buy rugby world cup and enter the code there.


Chat will feed back to team to ensure people (ahem) like me choose the correct path lol

Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.
