Cool Stadium

Went to see a Rugby match at this stadium. Very cool and vent. Not a bad seat in the place. Drinks and food were reasonably priced. Great outing when in Wellington!

Love it. When the stadium is full the atmosphere is incredible. Whether it be for rugby, cricket, football or league the stadium rocks for a decent game. Easy access to the city, good amount of eating and drinking and views to die for. Eat your heart out Eden park or any of those other wannabe stadiums in NZ!!

The Stadium is fine. The food is invariably unhealthy so you should go somewhere else before the game.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Stadium. In regards to the food options, we have various food carts offering a different range of healthier options at most events, plus the Mezzanine Bar has a varied menu including Gluten Free food. If you haven't tried this area, we suggest taking a look plus the view over the harbour... More

Took in a game with the wife for the Wellington Phoenix. First soccer game. Nice stadium. Food priced pretty well for a stadium. Many good craft beers on tap. Shame the crowd wasn't bigger. Pretty fun atmosphere and being part of the 'Yellow Fever' fan section.

We enjoyed the The day night cricket match between New Zealand in South Africa. Very beautiful stadium. Has got a lot of parking for the cars and a beautiful walk away to reach the stadium from the Wellington Railway station. Food and drinks will be served inside the stadium. We reached the stadium only to watch the second innings of... More

We had a great time watching a Hurricanes Rugby Match. The stadium is not too big and everything in walking distance. It is easy to get there by train, even from the suburbs. Only food wasnt for me as there was only snacks and fried stuff in the main area, but then again you dont go there to eat a... More

Have always loved the 'Cake Tin' and this ended up being one of the best concerts I've ever been to! (Also seen bands like AC/DC & Rolling Stones & Robbie Williams here) The weather wasn't great and rained allot, but this seemed to spur the band on and they really looked like they were loving playing in the bad weather...

Went to the Wellington 7's - haven't been in a number of years and really noticed the decline within the stadium. Flooring on atrium needs to be relaid - cracked, uneven and lacking in paint. Toilets, while clean, need an upgrade and a tidy up - but at least there are heaps of them. No rubbish bins to be found... More

Recently went to the Rugby Sevens, which has been criticized for no longer being a party. It was great the people who attended appeared to enjoy themselves.
