Name: AMI Stadium
Known as: Lancaster Park
Capacity: 38,628
In Brief: Lancaster Park, formerly Jade Stadium and currently known as AMI Stadium through sponsorship rights, is a sports stadium situated in Waltham, a suburb of Christchurch in New Zealand. The stadium is currently out of action owing to the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake and will remain closed in 2012. Seven 2011 Rugby World Cup matches scheduled for the stadium in September were moved to other venues. It is currently under discussion on whether or not to demolish the stadium. It has hosted various sports, including rugby union, cricket, association football, athletics, trotting (until, in 1899, this club moved to Addington Racecourse), rugby league, and non-sporting events such as concerts by Pearl Jam in 2009, Bon Jovi in 2008, Roger Waters in 2006, AC/DC in 1996, U2 in 1989 & 1993 and Billy Joel in 1987, but is primarily a rugby and cricket ground and is the home of the Crusaders rugby union team, who compete in Super Rugby. Its current capacity is 38,628. Formerly known as Lancaster Park, the stadium was renamed Jade Stadium in 1998, after the naming rights were sold to Jade Software Corporation Limited. In 2007, the naming rights were sold to AMI Insurance Limited and the stadium was renamed AMI Stadium. The park on which the stadium stands is still called Lancaster Park and as such, the formal name for the venue is AMI Stadium at Lancaster Park.
