Christchurch to celebrate Crusaders’ victory on Monday
Mayor Garry Moore invites Crusaders’ supporters to the central city at lunchtime tomorrow (Monday, 30 May) to applaud the players and celebrate the team’s fifth Super 12 title.
The Crusaders beat the Waratahs 35-25 in Saturday night’s Rebel Sport Super 12 final at Jade Stadium.
“Monday will be an opportunity for Cantabrians to come out in their thousands to celebrate this Super 12 victory,” says Mayor Garry Moore.
Monday’s victory celebration in Cathedral Square starts at midday. The public are encouraged to dress in team colours -- red and black. The victory ceremony will go ahead rain or shine.
The players and management will bring the Rebel Sport Super 12 trophy, there will be a few short speeches and fans will have an opportunity to meet the players and get their autographs.
Mobility parks will be available around Cathedral Square.
