At its meeting on Tuesday night, the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board approved the organisation's request to discontinue its lease of the Christchurch stadium.
Canterbury Rugby League no longer needed to lease the stadium now it has a new shared headquarters at the Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub in Halswell.
In order to build the new temporary stadium, Canterbury Rugby League agreed to partially surrender its lease of what was then known as Rugby League Park (formerly Addington Showgrounds).
This stadium has since been predominately used for rugby union, and is the venue for the Crusaders home Super Rugby matches.
