UC Supporters Photos: Crusaders vs Blues

On Friday 17 March, our very own Crusaders took on fierce rivals, The Blues and won 33-24 at AMI Stadium.

Supporting the team to victory were the The Cantabs with a big team of UC supporters cheering the players on and having a truly epic time.

UC supporters started off at The Foundry, did some face painting and took buses to and from the Stadium – check out some of the awesome photos below.

Cantab ‘Doo’ – Get your tickets

People often ask me what defines a ‘Cantab’, so I am going to tell you what a Cantab’ is in a very simple way; a ‘Cantab’ is a Legend, a local legend. We are known for the unique ability of taking the Crusaders footy game to a whole new level, through our legendary presence at the mighty AMI Stadium.

On the 17th of March 2017 our very own Crusaders will be taking on our fierce rivals, The Blues. The Cantabs will be marching 600 local legends into AMI Stadium to get behind our men in red, with the simple aim of having a truly epic time. We will be kicking off the evening with a bit of a pre ‘Doo’ at ‘Fundry’ (This is funny because I replaced the first part of ‘Foundry’ with ‘Fun’) and thereafter we will load the troops into buses and head to battle against the ‘Jaffas’. Once we teach the Blues how to play rugby, we will celebrate with a St Patricks day after party to remember at The Foundry!

If this sounds like your kind of ‘Doo’ then be sure to buy yourself a ticket from Dash tickets, and we will see you at the Foundry ready with our red and black overalls, face paint and flags! We know you want to become a Cantabs Legend!

Up the Crusaders!
