Blues chief executive Andrew Hore confirmed all 43,236 tickets for Sunday's game have been sold.

The Crusaders sealed the title at the weekend with a 32-22 win over the Highlanders in Christchurch.

New Zealand's five Super Rugby teams have reported increased crowd numbers, a welcome financial boost after the Covid-19 shutdown.

The Highlanders host the Hurricanes in the other game on Saturday.
