Close to the playing ground. Good crowd atmosphere generated. Good food facilities at new stand, but older stand shows it’s age, but still functional. Staffing appear professional and efficient in providing quality experience.

A great stadium, home to the Chiefs, one of NZ's best rugby teams. Crowds are not generally as vocal as UK ones, and the stadium is very family friendly. Make sure you are there for the NZ Rugby Sevens tournament early next year.
