Everyone is invited to a red and black party kicking off at midday tomorrow at the Christchurch Art Gallery with Christchurch City Councillor Tim Scandrett welcoming the three-peat champions.

Powerhouse captain Sam Whitelock and coach Scott "Razor" Robertson will address the crowd before fans have the opportunity to get signatures and snap photos with their local heroes.

The championship Investec Super Rugby Trophy will be on display and will remain at the gallery until 2.30pm for fans to get photos.

Cr Scandrett says it’s a fantastic achievement from the BNZ Crusaders to win three successive titles and 10 throughout Super Rugby's history.

"The Crusaders territory - spanning from Tasman through to South Canterbury - is widely known for its sporting excellence and we are proud to celebrate our BNZ Crusaders with this special event.

"Wear your red and black, come down and join the party. It’s a great opportunity to stay on after and enjoy the local retail and hospitality offerings of central Christchurch too. If you work in the Central City come down on your lunch break and take part in the celebrations."
