Am a regular attendee at rugby matches . The venue l think is first class, a great looking pitch with great drainage . Overall well worth the big spend of a few years ago to get it to this high standard.

We were treated by Deloittes to the rugby match between the Waikato Chiefs and the Otago Highlanders. Fortunately we were under the roof as it rained the whole match. At the end of the match there was no sign of mud nor any turf ripped up. Just an amazing surface to play on. An excellent mid sized stadium.

A great 25,000 seat stadium that doesn't have a bad seat. Well organised staff that gets you in and out very fast

This is one of the better stadiums around - the rectangular shape means you are close to the action and can see everything going on. Access to the stadium and then to our seats was really easy, and the food and bathroom facilities were all really good.

This s a great rugby stadium. You have great views of the game where ever you sit. The large tv screens are also well placed at both ends of the field. It has a fantastic vibe.

Our first visit to Waikato Stadium was to watch an All Blacks evening rugby match. We arrived early to enjoy the festivities and were impressed with the efficiency and friendliness of the stadium staff. We took a taxi so I cannot comment on the parking. It is essential to read the Stadium rules which are posted on their website regarding... More

My partner and I went to see a rugby game here last year, and we had a great time. You are nice and close to the action and do you get a real sense of community and fun in the crowd.
