The Blues will play all their upcoming Super Rugby Aotearoa games at Eden Park after the stadium waived the fee.

Eden Park had reportedly asked the Blues to front up with a hefty fee, but Eden Park CEO Nick Sautner

The season kicks off on June 13 with the Highlander hosting the Chiefs in Dunedin. A day later the Blues take on the Hurricanes at Eden Park.

Eden Park CEO Nick Sautner insists the fees being reported, around $30,000, are not true.

Mr Sautner says they have been committed to hosting Blues fixtures, and they collectively worked with the Blues and Auckland rugby on a model.
