This is Simply The Best

This is a tremendous stadium, great to watch rugby. The viewing is excellent because the players are so close. This stadium is very well designed

A friend came to stay because they wanted to attend a game at the Forsyth Barr Stadium I attended as well, Otogo vs Waikato. and all I can say is wow what a great stadium, not a sports fan but the place was going off the zoo was cool to see as well as the 1/2 time entertainment

Great place to go and have a look at. Or when a rugby match is on go and enjoy the company of hundreds of other people.Near the front of the stadium there is a cafe which has lovely food,coffee, tea and drinks all very cheap.

Nothing much more to say, purpose built football stadium with a roof. Easy access and great atmosphere. The model for what the rest of the country needs to do, the hybrid grounds in Auckland and Wellington just don't work.

All the Highlanders rugby team's home matches had a fantastic atmosphere. Food could be way cheaper! but in terms of an atmosphere its second to none. One of the greatest in the world.

As a season ticket holder in the North stand I can happily say that this stadium is one of the best. Access in and out of the stadium is easy, you can generally find a park well within walking distance and the food and drink outlets are relatively well priced, not to forget the coffee cart! Seats are close to... More
