For the first time since 2008, the Crusaders are hosting a Super Rugby semi-final and supporters can buy their tickets at 9am tomorrow.

Initial plans were to open up tickets for public sale on Sunday 20 July, following the quarter finals, however due to the significant public interest and number of enquiries received today, this on sale date has been brought forward.

Although there is still a quarter final round to be played, the Crusaders have progressed directly to the semi-finals by qualifying at 2nd on the points table. It has also been confirmed by SANZAR that the game will take place at 7:35pm on Saturday 26 July no matter which team they face.

“As a result, we’ve been able to get our tickets on sale earlier than we’d anticipated and are keen to let fans know that they can go ahead and book their spot at the semis right now,” Crusaders CEO Hamish Riach said.

“This is a game that Crusaders fans will not want to miss. It is our opportunity to make it through to the 2014 Grand Final and the team will want all of the support it can get. So let’s pack out AMI Stadium and give the boys the best home crowd advantage they could hope for.”

The Crusaders will face the highest-ranked winner from the qualifier rounds, which are the Brumbies vs Chiefs and Sharks vs Highlanders.

All Crusaders season ticket holders will have the opportunity to buy their own seats from tomorrow at 9am, and their seats will be held until 5pm on Monday 21 July.
