The Christchurch Stadium, previously 'AMI Stadium', has undergone a re-brand following AMI pulling its sponsorship.

The stadium trust ran a logo design competition. 

Ara Institute of Canterbury students Jane Keenan, Rachael Buckley and Nicholas Lew were thrilled their design was chosen ahead of five other finalists.

Buckley said she was "quite surprised" their design was selected.

The Visual Communications students' design comes in three colours to represent different events the venue holds. Red represents the main sporting events, the royal purple represents the corporate events and sky blue for music events and theatre. 

The Christchurch Stadium Trust will roll the logo out on all its platforms, including the actual stadium.
