Fantastic stdium for rugby

This s a great rugby stadium. You have great views of the game where ever you sit. The large tv screens are also well placed at both ends of the field. It has a fantastic vibe.

Our first visit to Waikato Stadium was to watch an All Blacks evening rugby match. We arrived early to enjoy the festivities and were impressed with the efficiency and friendliness of the stadium staff. We took a taxi so I cannot comment on the parking. It is essential to read the Stadium rules which are posted on their website regarding... More

My partner and I went to see a rugby game here last year, and we had a great time. You are nice and close to the action and do you get a real sense of community and fun in the crowd.

Came to watch Waikato rugby play & wow what an environment to be in. It was smokefree and tidy. Loved every minute of it, easy to access & close to hotel.

Organised our trip to NZ from Australia, with a bit of difficulty I managed to purchase two tickets for All Blacks v Pumas and had perfect seats above the centre of the pitch in the Brian Perry Stand (which I think would be the best sheltered area in inclement weather). We arrived early to soak up the atmosphere and although... More

Went to see the All Blacks v Argentina. We were in the WEL Network Stand (South) with seats four rows back (uncovered) on the half-way line (aisle 28, row D, seats 109-117). The capacity is barely 25000 but the atmosphere was good. The weather was excellent (it might have been a different story if it was pouring down) and the... More

I have watched several games at this stadium and it has great views for those watching sports. Only some of the stadium is covered so be selective where you choose to sit
