The ‘sold out’ sign has gone up at AMI Stadium for tonight’s Investec Super Rugby Final between the BNZ Crusaders and the Emirates Lions.


The stadium capacity of 19,600 has just been reached with the last few tickets selling this morning.

BNZ Crusaders CEO, Hamish Riach, commented that he’s immensely proud of the Crusaders region for getting behind Scott, Sam and the team for tonight’s final.

“We’ve been overwhelmed with the support from fans this week, and in fact the whole season, and to now put up the sold-out sign at AMI Stadium shows what this game means to our loyal fan base and the wider Crusaders community.

“We’re thrilled that the team, who have made us proud with their performances in 2018, will have the opportunity to run out in the biggest game of the year in front of a full house tonight,” Riach said.

The BNZ Crusaders have not hosted a Super Rugby final in Christchurch since 2008, and tonight’s showdown with the Lions - a rematch of the 2017 final - is going to be a fitting finale to the 2018 season.

Gates will open at AMI Stadium at 6pm, and all fans are encouraged to arrive early to the venue to ensure they don’t miss any of the build-up show or pre-match entertainment.  Fans are also in for a treat at halftime with a performance worthy of a Super Rugby Final.
