The Gallagher Chiefs will take on the Crusaders at the earlier kick off time of 7.05pm at FMG Stadium Waikato on Saturday. The evening game is set to excite spectators following the two sides last encounter in Fiji. A fantastic display of running rugby saw the Suva crowd erupt when the Gallagher Chiefs beat the 2019 Investec Super Rugby Champions 40-27.

This Saturday will see Gallagher Chiefs Head Coach Warren Gatland lead his side for the first time back on home soil. The battle won’t just be held on the field but in the coaching boxes, with Gatland and Crusaders coach Scott Robinson going head to head directing their star-studded teams. It is guaranteed the game proudly sponsored by Splice Construction will provide some entertaining fast-paced rugby.

For the first home game of the Investec Super Rugby season it is only appropriate the Gallagher Chiefs members are celebrated. This weekend’s members appreciation round, will see the Club celebrating and rewarding this year’s Gallagher Chiefs members with 20% discount on additional match tickets for family and friends when purchasing online, exclusive beverage discounts on-game day with their 2020 Member lanyards and special merchandise deals including a 40% discount on the C96 range which will only be available on Saturday at the game. Finally, this year’s 2020 Gallagher Chiefs members will have exclusive access to attend the Gallagher Chiefs captains run on Friday 7 February at FMG Stadium Waikato. The closed captains run will provide another opportunity for members to meet their favourite Gallagher Chiefs player and grab an autograph or selfie.

While there is plenty of excitement on the field spectators and fans will be wowed with pyro technics, feel at home with Maori Toa’s welcome and be entertained at halftime with Willies up and under competition thanks to Waikato Draught. The earlier kick off time of 7.05pm gives families the opportunity to make an evening of it and enjoy the 1-Day Fun Zones with free kids’ packs, flags and posters to keep the kids entertained.
