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

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

Hi Brenda. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your HSBC Wellington Sevens experience. We are planning a Concourse upgrade which will address many of the points you raised. In regards to Rubbish Bins in the seated area, this is an ingress/egress path for thousands of people and we cannot have obstructions. Rubbish Bins are readily... 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. You could no longer smuggle a bottle of vodka in however the organisers made an effort to put on a great event with good food options and plenty of things for people to... More

The stadium is great easy to get in and put of. Unfortunately the food is expensive and rubbish. While I accept this is a stadium either keep the crap food and drop the prices or improve the quality

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!
