In 2018 Christchurch was introduced to Christchurch Heroes, the first ever South Island LGBTI+ inclusive rugby team.
Throughout the year we have watched this amazing enterprise grow thanks to their supporters from the local LGBTI+ community and Christchurch Football Club and fellow rugby teams.
In summer 2019 a joint sponsorship between Christchurch Pride and Rainbow Lifestyle Protection saw us being able to provide the Heroes summer touch teams with some fantastic shirts that the touch team can wear with Pride. Christchurch Heroes have since launched swimming and running as well. If you are interested in being part of the Heroes, either playing or just supporting please follow their FB page: www.facebook.com/ChchHeroes/
