What started as an idea and a dream, today is a reality.

The only fully roofed natural turf Stadium in the world! The first pile was driven into the ground on a winter’s day in 2009, officially to be opened by John Key in 2011 ahead of the Rugby World Cup where 100,000 fans partied under the roof.

Since then, more than 2 million patrons have enjoyed hugely varied events as the truly versatile pitch transforms from pristine turf for international sporting fixtures, to top billing concert arena, to festival ground, to racing track, to movie theatre, to kindergarten picnic space, and back again! A truly versatile space and a Dunedin icon to be proud of.
