The Canterbury Rugby Supporters’ Club is moving back to AMI Stadium in 2010, and we want you to join us!

The Canterbury Rugby Supporters’ Club will be situated at the Tui Stand end of the Scenic Hotel’s Lounge on Level 3 of the Paul Kelly Stand. This year we are pleased to be able to offer to CRSC members limited membership packages including covered seating in front of the Scenic Hotel’s South Lounge. We apologise for the late notice however this has only just been confirmed.

The Canterbury Rugby Supporters’ Club would like to extend a huge thank you to Hamish Riach and the Canterbury Rugby Football Union for their assistance in our negotiations to secure Clubrooms back at AMI Stadium.

2010 Membership Questions & Answers

How do I become a member of the Canterbury Rugby Supporters Club for 2010?
Complete the membership application form and pay the 2010 membership subscription of $25.00 per person.

How do I purchase a CRSC Season Ticket seat for 2010?
Contact the CRSC Secretary, Cathie Anderson, via email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or by phone (03) 354 1265 (evenings). All CRSC Season Ticket holders will need to be CRSC members.

Are there payment options available for the CRSC Season Ticket?
As with the CRFU Season Ticket offer, weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment options are available for Season Tickets.

I have already purchased my season ticket for 2010, will I still have access to the Canterbury Rugby Supporters Club?
All CRSC members will have access to the Supporters Club up to a limit of 500 people. Therefore, if there are 500 CRSC Season Ticket seat holders, these people will have first entry to the Clubrooms. The likelihood of this happening in the 2010 season is slim, but may be an issue in future years.

I have already purchased my season ticket for 2010, but would like to change it to the CRSC Season Ticket. Can I do this?
Yes you can. Please contact Cathie Anderson, CRSC Secretary in the first instance.

Can I bring guests into the Canterbury Rugby Supporters Club?
We are still working through if this is going to be possible, and will largely be based on the number of CRSC Season Tickets sold.

Will I have access to the CRSC Clubrooms after the All Black Test?
At this time, only those holding CRSC Season Tickets including the Test will have guaranteed access to the CRSC Clubrooms after the All Black Test (up to a maximum of 500 persons).

Why has the Membership Fee increased to $25.00 per person?
Due to the new premises and costs associated with this, a decision was made at the AGM held in December that the membership fee for this year should be raised to $25.00.

How do I gain access to the CRSC Clubrooms?
2010 CRSC members (i.e. those who have paid their $25.00 subscription) will be able to gain access to the CRSC Clubrooms in the Scenic Hotels Lounge South via the lift, walkway or stairs at the southern (Tui Stand) end of the Paul Kelly Stand. Membership identification will be required before entry.

Will the players still visit the new CRSC Clubrooms?
We have had confirmation from the Crusaders Management that a number of players will call at the CRSC Clubrooms after each game.

I want to check out the new CRSC Season Ticket seats first. Can I do this?
Sure can. Come and visit us before or after the first Super 14 game. You can gain access via the lift, walkway or stairs at the southern (Tui Stand) end of the Paul Kelly Stand. If you still have your 2009 CRSC Membership Card, please bring this with you. This will make entry to the Scenic Hotels Lounge South a much smoother process for the first game.

How long before and after the game is the CRSC Clubrooms open?
As part of the Scenic Hotels Lounge South, the CRSC Clubrooms will open when the gates open on game days, and will close approximately 90 mins after the final whistle.

If I purchase a CRSC Season Ticket, does this include the Semis and Final?
You will have the first option to purchase your ticket for the Semis and Final for both the Super 14 and NPC competition however this is not included in the price quoted.
