Opened in December 1999, Westpac Stadium is the first purpose built multi-use sports stadium in New Zealand and provides a regional stadium adjacent to the CBD in New Zealand’s capital. The stadium accommodates 34,500 in a complete bowl set around an international 1 day cricket oval. The orientation of the oval, and the enclosed nature of the stadium, also provide close proximity to the international standard Rugby field for the winter sport codes.
The stadium incorporates a roof over 70% of the seating area, further enhancing the sensation of proximity to the action and providing the highest standards of spectator comfort at any stadium in New Zealand. This facility is a truly modern stadium in New Zealand.
