Canterbury Rugby Football Union (CRFU) Chief Executive Hamish Riach said there is much excitement about seeing the Rugby World Cup finalists in action again.
“France never ceases to surprise and excite and the battle between the two sides is legendary. They knocked us out of the world cup in 1999 and 2007 and in 2011 the All Blacks faced them in the final for a nail biting head to head. These two great sides from the 2011 World Cup final come together again to battle it out.
"The Steinlager Series reinforces a great tradition of fierce rivalry between us and our northern hemisphere friends and we look forward to continuing that tradition this year against France. It promises to be a top-class competition between two of world rugby’s biggest rivals. I would encourage fans to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment as last year’s international sold out fast.“
AMI Stadium is putting an additional 4,000 seats on for the game by creating a new temporary West stand. As a result 20,780 people can enjoy the game. Canterbury Rugby Football Union has pre-sold approximately 9,500 tickets to the local rugby community which includes those involved in the community level rugby and with Crusaders and Canterbury RFU season memberships.
Tickets are available from as little as $55.00 and can be purchased through Ticket Direct ticketdirect.co.nz or by calling 0800 224 224. Tickets go on sale from 9am Monday morning.
Tickets for the Investec Rugby Championship – which will see the All Blacks pitted against Australia, South Africa and new competition entrants Argentina – go on sale in July
