Forsyth Barr Stadium

New Zealand's newest, largest and most versatile indoor events arena. Perfect for conferences, meetings and more.


With its unbeatable atmosphere as the world's only fully-roofed natural turf stadium, this is a truly modern, unique and inspiring venue. Forsyth Barr Stadium is not just a stadium but a truly multipurpose facility.

The main stadium is the obvious choice for large capacity events such as major expos and concerts.

For events, meetings and conferences where the main pitch would be too large, there's a variety of smaller suites and lounges to offer the perfect setup within this architectural icon.

There's also a large, fully-roofed event space that can be configured to your specifications for cocktail functions, banquets, smaller concerts and tradeshows.
