The Christchurch Stadium will be completed in time for the first Crusader's match next month.

Prime Minister John Key visits the new stadium being constructed at Rugby League ParkPrime Minister John Key said today the 18,000 seat stadium would be ready for the first Crusader's match on March 24. The former Rugby League Park is undergoing a $20 million redevelopment, with new seating, floodlights and turf capable of hosting Super Rugby matches and tests.

The stadium could end up with a 25,000 seat capacity. After testing out the seats and walking around the stadium today, Key described it as a "great sporting facility". He was particularly impressed with the closeness of the seats to the pitch.

Last week it was revealed the stadium was going to be about $5 million over budget, but Key said there was no question it would not be completed. The Government would pick up the "lion's share" of the blowout, while several other people and organisations would also be putting money into the project, he said.

Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee said last week the decision to put extra strengthening under the temporary stands was contributing to the budget blowout.
