13 August 2008 - This week has been great for this region with the announcement that Manawatu will remain a part of the Air NZ Cup's future and that the Moloo men from Hamilton are indeed human and vulnerable to a Turbos home attack. But the team needs the support of its fans and to bring them all in to FMG Stadium there is a feast of pre-match entertainment that will warm up everyone for the main event at 7pm.

Green with Pride flags will again be on sale for children at $5 each with $10 paid out for all returns. The Tui Tour de Toki flat challenge will see flats of four battle it out on chopper bikes (all without any taking to the road) for a position in the final (to be held in September) and the newly formed More FM Cheerleaders will again perform to the crowd. Lets hope its dry so they can enjoy the night and mix with the fans.

For the young ones Promo King will be set up in the McDonalds area (weather may cause this to close without notice) and parents should note that all the rides and activities will be "free of any charge". McDonalds will again supply kids packs that will include Turbos posters, Cadbury products, Anchor milk and other goodies. Face painting is again on the agenda along with the creation of Turbos game support posters. Powa Products will also test and entertain the kids with rugby skill contests with winners taking home some great Powa Products. Turboman will be present throughout the evening to ensure the kids have a great match day experience and to support the players when they front up for autographs at the end of the game.

The ladies also deserve something special and we have created the one and only Palmy Chicks female zone/tent where women only can socialise and experience rugby under a bit of cover with the support of and a few teasers from EziBuy.

Heli-pro will again fly in special guests for the match day sponsor Property Brokers. Look out for the teams biggest fan, the Turbos Turbine, as it winds up for the game.

The "Gang Green" Bucketheads have chants in hand and buckets on the head to provoke and interest the Moloo visitors. They are harmless but rather territorial and tend to gather around the Cook Street area of the ground where they shout clever slogans and use special hand signals towards the opposition fans. Bucketheads will be inducted on the spot at every game.

The first 500 through the Student Gate (Cook Street) receive a free piece of Tui Merchandise.

For the traditionalists we have a curtain raiser game: Manawatu v Wairarapa Bush Police (4:25 kick off) in the build up to the Turbos V Waikato main event and the Central Energy replay screen and scoreboard will catch all the action. Don't forget. Buy tickets prior to game day and save up to $5 on each ticket purchased. The FMG Stadium gates open at 4pm and the game kicks off at 7.05pm.
