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!

Crusaders vs Hurricanes 16 July

Winterlude marks half of the academic year whizzing past us, and this year it also marks the Super 15 season coming to an end.

This Winterlude Cantabs bring you Crusaders vs Hurricanes on 16 July. It is the last guaranteed home match for the boys in red and black, and the Crusaders have been having an absolute cracker of a season so it’s sure to be an epic match-up.

Cantabs have put together all your must-haves to charge on AMI in one convenient little package. Everything will be going down at the Foundry from 3pm. There is going to be plenty happening to get you Bank stand ready. There will be Cantabs overalls with stenciling and customisation facilities, as well as face painting, and The Foundry will be putting on a few food and drink specials to keep morale and energy levels high. Complementary buses leaving the foundry at 4pm for ticket holders.

During the week before game day the Cantabs will be on campus with a few chances for you to score a double pass to the Cantabs Pre-match and the game. At the Pre-match Cantabs will have spot prizes to those who make the extra effort with their attire (helpful hint: if you’re in red and black, you’re on the right track).

This event isn’t just about the game being played, it’s also about being part of a student community and being a Cantabrian – and we all know Rugby is the heart of the south. This game is a chance to snap an excellent selfie, hashtag your heart out, throw some chat around, and get out and about as a Canterbury student and see some Canterbury sport.

Give Cantabs a Like on Facebook and we will make sure all the info about what is happening and when it’s happening is posted up on the book https://www.facebook.com/cantabs/.

Tickets are available on Dash now!
