Will you donate a signed jersey for my fundraiser?

As you will appreciate we receive a large number of requests for items to be donated for various causes all of a very worthy nature. The Canterbury Rugby Football Union and Crusaders have six Gold Charities that it supports and unfortunately is unable to provide memorabilia direct to other people or organisations.
 
However we are able to get items signed for fundraising. In order to maintain the value of signed memorabilia and to make sure the numbers of items the team sign is within the number set by the NZRU players collective, our policy is to have a monthly signing draw for three groups - schools, amateur clubs and non profit organisations. 

To be eligible for the monthly signing draw please complete the form on our Contact page. Include all information about what you would like signed, for which school, amateur club or non profit organisations and the date of the event if applicable. Due to the large numbers of requests you will be notified ONLY if your request is successfully drawn. Please note that if you are successfully drawn you are to provide your own item to be signed by the team.

Can you send me a signed photograph of a specific player?

 Unfortunately we cannot accommodate your request as we act for the team as a whole.

How can I get items signed or messages from the team for myself, or friends/family?

Unfortunately this a request we are unable to accommodate. As you will appreciate the Crusaders receive a large number of requests for signings, messages and photos. In order to maintain the value of signed memorabilia and to make sure the numbers of items the team sign is within the number set by the NZRU players collective, our policy is to give priority to our six Gold Charities, sponsors, and then schools, clubs and non-profit organisations.

Can you arrange for players to attend a Club, School, Charity, Community or Fundraising event?

We receive many requests for players to donate their time, all for very worthy causes.  We would love to support them all, however the nature of our business does not allow us to do so.

Our players promotional activities are very carefully managed and are scheduled prior to the commencement of the campaign.  Our first priority is to our six Gold charities, St John, Burwood Spinal Unit, Child Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, The Rugby Foundation and the Christchurch City Mission and secondly the players have contractual obligations to our sponsors and thirdly our commitments to clubs and schools.

Although requests can be considered we have to carefully manage player time to ensure it stays within the limits set by the NZRU Players Collective and within their training schedules as well has allowing for time to prepare adequately for game day. Please submit your request via our Contact page - for consideration you must include all details of the event including where, when and why.
