General Admission

GA for this year's SKYCITY Hamilton Waikato Cup Day is a little bit different.

We have a brand new initiative for those of you wanting to spend the day with us.


The Pay What You Want mechanism has been a huge success this year. On Wednesday the surge for tickets far exceeded anything we could have predicted and bucked the trends of previous years, so we sold our entire allocation for 2019.

We've talked to the caterers and we've been able to release a limited number more. This will be the FINAL release. Once these sell out, there will be NO MORE.

If these sell out prior to the day then there will be no gate sales

Introducing "Pay What You Want" General Admission!

We're encouraging (and incentivising) you to pre-purchase your tickets. We want you to rediscover the races and experience the thrill and excitement of Skycity Hamilton Waikato Cup Day but we want to make sure we are ready for you.

We'd love to throw open the gates but then how would we know if 1,000 or 10,000 of you were coming! So we're introducing "Pay What You Want"

Yes that's right, for as little as $2.50 (the cost of the booking fee) you can be on course celebrating and enjoying our premier raceday! We've left it in your hands to value what we believe is the one of the highlights of the social calendar here in Hamilton. Novel idea? We thought so too!

These ticket prices over the years have been valued at $20 per person and that's what it will be that on the day at the gates, they are still available.
Under 18's will be FREE

Your ticket gets you on course and in to either the Flemington Lounge on Level 1 or the Public Village precinct.

The Public Village Precinct is a large outdoor space for you and your family and friends to be able to watch the exciting action alongside the course proper with access to Gourmet Food Trucks and great Public Bar. You'll also be able to view the big screen and go in to the Southern End of the Main Grandstand. With all this on offer you won't miss a moment of the action.
