The Chiefs rugby side is exciting to host another exciting super rugby clash in Fiji next year.
Club Chief Executive Mike Collins says it was an exciting to again take one of the clash in Fiji as they have always overwhelmed by the local crazy fans.
Collins says this is a good chance for Fijians to once again see their favourite players in action.
“The Fijian people have been great supporters of the super rugby matches that we have played in Suva. Fiji has added a lot to rugby in NZ over the years so we’re really pleased to be able to take another game there.”
Chiefs will host the Crusaders on the 1st of June next year at Suva’s ANZ Stadium.
It will be the third time the teams have clashed in the Fijian capital, with the sides having a win apiece.
Both the teams have played to sell-out crowds in both the previous matches- 23-13 win to the Chiefs in 2016 and a 32-24 win to the Crusaders the year after.
