We arrived in New Zealand too late for the rugby season, but decided to attend a football (soccer) game featuring the Wellington Phoenix vs. the Newcastle Jets. The stadium is a great place to watch such a game, but the hot dogs and the fish and chips we bought from a concession stand were expensive and barely edible.

As a UK football fan, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to see the Phoenix take on Sydney. A surprising number of fans considering the population size and the fact it's neither number 1 or 2 in their sports. Pretty poor standard of football, only for Sydney to knick it 1-0 in the 90+2nd minute!

We took a group of 8 - 11 year olds for a tour of the stadium. The man doing the tour was inappropriate for the age of the children as he kept talking about drunk people and paying rates. Would not go back again for a tour but may go for another reason.

went to the All Blacks Wallabies game in August 2016. The stadium is conveniently located near the centre of town which is great if you have central accommodation. We were near half way about 20 rows from the pitch. The view was pretty good but as the pitch is set back from the edge of the seating it doesn't feel... More

Went here for the Bledisloe match between the All blacks and the Wallabies. One of the best stadiums I've visited to date. The seats were great and quite comfy and roomy. Didn't feel like you were sitting in someone else's lap like in other stadiums.

One of the great stadiums in the world. Easy to get there, friendly people and a great atmosphere. Does watching sport get any better?

To introduce my brother from Australia to our local Beervana was meant to be a great event for us both. I even talked a couple of colleagues into coming with us. Much to my regret. Our best parts of the night were spent pre and post the event at the Thistle Inn and Cavern Club. The night was one complete... More

Took the train to Wellington then the arduous trek to the stadium began - praise the Gods it wasn't raining or windy because that would have been terrible. We arrived at the gates and joined the queues of early birds wanting to get into Beervana - The lines were chaos and there were roadblocks in the form of people in... More

What a great game. Excellent seats. Very accessible and easy to pick up pre-booked tickets from the main entrance. Good selection of pre-match food available.
