The Warriors are giving away tickets to their NRL season opener against the Bulldogs today to give fans the opportunity to stand together following the Christchurch terror attack.

This will be the Warriors first match of the season and Warriors chief executive Cameron George has said that there will be more security at the home match at Mt Smart stadium.

"New Zealand is hurting".

"We represent New Zealand and Christchurch is a huge part of our fan base". Mt Smart can hold 30,000 spectators.

"Please also take note of our Text Assist service where you can report anything directly to our Venue Operations Centre - simply text the word ASSIST then your message to 260".

"We are restricting the allocation of tickets available to ensure we can logistically manage the crowd size in terms of traffic management and catering and, as such, will not be opening the upper south stand".

The Warriors will wear black armbands and a minute's silence will also be observed by both teams before kick-off.
