Matthew Davey has given the green light for the ANZ Stadium in Suva to host the Super Rugby match between Crusaders and Chiefs on July 1.

The chief executive officer of Fortress Information System, the Super Rugby Event organiser, was satisfied after inspecting the ANZ Stadium facilities yesterday.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be preparing for the launch of the Gallagher Chiefs-BNZ Crusaders match at a good venue like the ANZ Stadium,” Davey said.

“We’ve been busy for the past few days doing the pre-planning for the event delivery and operation side of the event.

“We’ve had a lot of excitement building up internationally for this game with the large number of New Zealanders looking forward to come and join an amazing unique event.

“This is the first time Super Rugby is being played here and we’re all very thrilled to bring together

an amazing partnership between the Fijian Government, Fiji Sports Council, New Zealand Rugby and the NZ Rugby Players Association,” Davey said.

He said they have yet to decide on when tickets would go on sale.

“We’re keeping the tickets in the embankment as low as possible we very much want to give the opportunity for as many families to come
out and watch .We understand how special a game like this to the people of Fiji,”Davey said.

“Fijians get to experience Super Rugby in their own backyard so in the concrete embankment we’re looking at $30 and $20 on the green embankment and for the grandstand $125-$165 as this will be occupied mainly by our overseas visitors.

“We want to build a relationship and to give the opportunity for the people of Fiji who have love and passion and how much they deliver for this game.” Edited by Osea Bola
