Bartercard boost 2022 Chiefs Membership Programme

Grab your 2022 Membership

The Chiefs Rugby Club have today launched their 2022 Chiefs Membership programme with Platinum Sponsor Bartercard named as the official partner of the programme.

Bartercard have come onboard to offer 2022 Chiefs Members 50% of their membership price paid back in free restaurant vouchers. This will be offered to the first 2000 Adult Chiefs Members who sign on with the club for 2022. Members can use these at several restaurants around the Chiefs region and enjoy local hospitality either before a Gallagher Chiefs home game or outside of gamedays.

The new Bartercard restaurant vouchers are just one of a long list of benefits offered exclusively to members. Members will gain access to all Gallagher Chiefs home games, which includes two free matches if purchased prior to Friday 14 January. With the introduction of Super Rugby Aupiki, members will now be connected to both men’s and women’s Chiefs teams with members receiving access to the first ever Chiefs Women home fixture at FMG Stadium Waikato.

Chiefs Rugby Club CEO Michael Collins said: “We are excited to launch our 2022 Chiefs Membership programme today, and look forward to seeing our 2021 members returning and having loads of new members join our Chiefs whanau for the upcoming season.

“Members are the heartbeat of our club, they are our most loyal, passionate fans and the more of them we have with us, the stronger we are both on & off the field. We want to ensure we are continuing to improve our membership programme to exceed their expectations and provide them an experience that they are proud of.”

Collins continued acknowledging the inclusion of Bartercard as the official partner of the 2022 Chiefs Membership programme.

“With Bartercard onboard our members now get to enjoy even more benefits outside of the stadium at a number of local restaurants across Chiefs Country. This makes the membership more affordable as everyone needs a good feed, but more importantly encourages families & friends who are passionate about our club to connect and create memories.”

Bartercard National Sponsorships Manager Ross Hamilton said they are also excited about the new partnership.

“Bartercard are very excited to be partnering with the Chiefs Membership programme. We understand that whether you are a sports club or business, without fans, supporters or customers you have no club or business. Bartercard wish to thank our member businesses The Lawrenson Group Hamilton, The Good Home New Plymouth and Hennessys Rotorua for supporting this fantastic initiative”

Free kids memberships will again be on offer with every adult membership purchased in select zones. Members will once again be able to purchase a dual Chiefs and Waikato Mooloo membership allowing them access to an extra five Waikato Mooloo home matches at FMG Stadium Waikato, plus a new option to access the Waikato Supporters Club Lounge for the entire season for only $20.

The membership offer also includes a unique option for fans to get to the cricket this summer, with the Northern Brave Membership add-on available. For the first time, Chiefs members will be able to add on the Northern Brave Membership to any membership for $129 adults, $89 kids. This includes general admission tickets to all Northern Districts domestic cricket home matches, a replica playing top and discounts on tickets and corporate hospitality for BLACKCAPS and WHITE FERNS matches played at Seddon Park (excludes Cricket World Cup matches).

2022 Gallagher Chiefs members benefits include a personalised seat sticker, a Member’s blanket, 20% off official merchandise and apparel, 15% off food and beverage at FMG Stadium Waikato and dedicated members’ only lanes for entry. Access to exclusive events such as Member’s Day, Captain’s Run and Kids’ Clinic, priority purchase rights to home playoff matches and All Blacks home tests. Members will also receive a 15% discount on additional tickets to 2022 home matches along with a 20% discount for Gallagher Chiefs away matches in New Zealand.

Collins is also thrilled to be able to join forces with other organisations in both cricket and rugby.

“We know we have a number of Chiefs members who love cricket and there are a lot of Northern Brave fans who also enjoy watching our Chiefs teams. This unique add-on is special as both fan segments will be able to enjoy live sport from summer through to winter and both primary venues are conveniently placed not far from each other in central Hamilton.”

“Being able to once again include the Waikato Mooloo membership to our offering just makes life easy for the real hardcore rugby fans in the Waikato. They have the ability to keep their same seat across two seasons and they score a huge number of benefits. We know we have a decent amount of proud Mooloo supporters that are Chiefs Members, they bring their cowbells to our matches, and we hope to see a large number of them take up the dual membership like they did for this year.”

Chiefs memberships are on sale from today until the Gallagher Chiefs first 2022 home match at FMG Stadium Waikato.

Seated Chiefs Memberships start from $110 for adults and $45 for kids. Kids can score a free membership in select zones with an adult membership. Credit card fees apply.
