The New Zealand Herald is reporting the Crusaders are considering playing their Super 15 match against the Hurricanes next year in Fiji.

The team's Christchurch base, AMI Stadium, is being used for the Under-20 Fifa World Cup in late May and June next year, forcing the Crusaders were forced to look for an alternative.

The report says a sponsor has offered to underwrite the cost of the game if it was shifted to Fiji.

The National Stadium in Suva holds 20,000 while Flying Fijians star Nemani Nadolo was a key part of the team's run to this year's Super Rugby final.
