Testimonials

Sam Cane - Chiefs Co-Captain
“All the team are hugely appreciative of our outstanding group of members. Their loyal support is second to none and we feel immensely proud seeing them at our member’s events and in the stands, rain, hail or shine. They’re a massive part of our Gallagher Chiefs whanau and we feel privileged to have them join us at our home games. For that we thank you!”

Raewyn - Member since 2014
"The last 5 years my family and I have been part of the Chiefs membership family. It has been great to be able to spend this time with family that have come all the way from Taranaki. Having a membership has allowed fast access through the gates and into our designated seating. The membership gifts have been a bonus!"

Brian and Helen - Members since 1996
"As die hard Chiefs supporters for 23 years it was a no-brainer for us to join as Chiefs members when the opportunity first arose. It’s very satisfying to know we have secured seating available for every home game at FMG Waikato Stadium, the opportunity to purchase extra tickets as the need arises, also tickets to Tests and Chiefs away games. Memberships offer the opportunity to support the Chiefs franchise, to promote and enhance rugby (the game we all love) in our region. Chiefs mana appeals to our grassroots aspect and history - a no nonsense, ‘just get on with it’ attitude and environment we are all proud to be part of."

Peter - Member since 1997
"I have been a Chiefs member for 22 years. Coming to a game now is still the same great experience as my first game was, nothing can beat being in this awesome stadium to cheer on your team. Over the years you meet the other supporters around you and look forward to seeing them every season. The Chiefs always try and associate with their fans and I have enjoyed meeting them all on numerous occasions. Well done team for allowing us fans into the team circle, go well and keep us entertained."
