Very cold but great to know you are not going to get wet with the covered stadium. Great atmosphere in the stadium.

Easy walk from CBD, plenty of food suppliers. Seats were great, stadium is great, near half way and high up to see all the action. 2 large screens if you miss something.

Excellent venue for rugby to live music to the Craft Beer Festival. One of the best investments Dunedin has made. A real asset to our city.
