Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Over here for the World Cup soccer to watch Sweden play. Went to 3 matches including the NZ Phillipines game. All 3 were well organised and the food was pretty good for stadium food. Had the dumplings last night which were quite nice.

Take a water proof poncho as if you get seating outside the covered area it can be pretty wet and windy.

Well set up for huge numbers of people. Lots of stewards, felt very safe even with my blind husband. Very easy to find our seats, lots of reasonably clean toilets. Just not enough FIFA stands for sales of merchandise (Not the stadium's fault!)

In Wellington & quite by chance found out the Hurricanes were playing the Sharks (Capetown) with an evening kick-off. Just had to go. Took two American friends along as they had never seen rugby union before. They were not disappointed. Easy to buy tickets on the gate & staff were helpful in getting us seats near the half-way line. The booze & food outlets were plentiful & easily accessible. Queueing was not a problem as everywhere operated efficiently. We were even given free Hurricanes banners ! Exiting the stadium was also done in a considerate manner. Most enjoyable. Oh & the Hurricanes won 38 - 22.

Went to see Adam Lambert and Queen there on February the 5th. We queued for hours to get through one of two gates. We were not even allowed to carry water in to the venue, and, when we finally got in, we had to queue for another 30 minutes to buy two small bottles of water for $4.50 each. The counter staff then removed the pull-top caps, so we couln't put the bottle down any where without fear of it spilling. - This made applauding the excellent act very hard! The show was amazing, but this crumbling venue is truly appaling! The men's toilets stank of urine and had paint peeling from the walls and floor.
Exiting the stadium took a furthur 45 mins, and my partner was unable to access any of the Women's toilets due to hour-long queues for them. -Totally inadequate facilities for women.

I have heard that the cement used in this structure was faulty & porous, resuling in hundreds of leaks. - To me it's a disaster waiting to happen.

The staduim management are only interested in gouging as much money from the punters as possible, and offer only terrible food & average drinks.

I shall never go there again and instead will travel to Auckland to watch touring shows.

Great concert always a good place to catch up with love ones😜
However over the years they still have not got it right.
Long queues and stale chips,my suggestion about time they change the catering company.
Not to mention the toilets and lack of toilet paper.
How hard is it
Why don’t they bring in the culture of Wellington and have the food trucks? That would be awesome as they take pride in their food and service.
Catering company has the contract they don’t care as long as they get paid.

The stadium has good structural bones, and recent improvements to food and drink offerings have vastly improved the experience.

Went to this stadium a couple of weeks back or so to watch a T20 game between England and New Zealand. I've watched this stadium many times on TV and must admit it looks a lot bigger on TV than what it actually is. The capacity is around 30 thousand I think. Food and drinks are easily available and overall seeing the players from quite close was a great experience. Really had a nice time there.

We saw the All Blacks v Springboks game on Saturday night. Fantastic atmosphere and good seats wherever you sit, the stadium is round so there are no ‘bad’ views or obstructions. The best part I think is the accessibility, its right in the city and within walking distance, and if you are coming from other suburbs the train station is literally right outside the gates. Make sure you don’t go on an empty stomach because the food and drink is pricey (as is the case with all stadiums), but be prepared for a great time, whether it be a concert or a sports event, I can’t imagine having a bad experience here. However, the queues to get out were crazy, I don’t understand why more exit gates aren’t opened when they are expecting a huge crowd of people to leave at once?!

Had the pleasure of great seats last Friday to take in the Warriors game with my family. Due to the rain we opted to park inside the stadium, awesome facility but...it took over 3/4 hour to get out of the car park, that needs rectifying! The seating and views are amazing, love it, just hate having to take out a 2 ND Mortgage to buy food and drinks, even a small bottle of Coke (as a treat for the kids) is $5! The food is rather bland, always just pies, tasteless burgers and fries or if you're wealthy ish n chips! Food and drinks are the only thing that really lets the stadium down, second to none with views and facilities, just need diversity in food and prices that allow a family to buy food there, we will be back though, love the place!

It’s very easy to go there by foot. All the seats have a good view. I enjoyed my first rugby game there!
