Went to see a Warriors game during the NRL season, and attended an associated Bulldogs function. I have also attended other functions at this venue, they were good events, and a good place to watch footy. The lift in the Brian Perry stand needs attention though, the doors sometimes slam on people!

We quite often attend events at Waikato stadium and no matter the seat you have you are always sure of a great view and great atmosphere!

I really enjoyed seeing a rugby league Warriors vs Bull Dogs at Waikato Stadium. This was my first visit to a rugby league match at this venue.

Great night out and enjoyable rugby. Easy access to boot. The food was extremely disappointing. All deep fried and far from appealing. I wish they had some healthy options but alas not. You're not able to take your own food and drink but to only have doughnuts steak sandwiches hotdogs and chips is poor. :((

I wasn't a fan of this development. It cost the community a fortune and ratepayers and renters (people who really pay landlords' rates) will never get the debt monkey off their backs. But, it is a very good oval ( rugby and rugby league) ground. That doesn't make rugby any more interesting. A game at Waikato Stadium is just as... More

No doubt one of the very best sporting venues in the country for sports such as Rugby or League because spectators have great visibility of the griund & are all close to the action . The surface is also top class for players .

It's small (max 30,000 people), intimate, comfortable. We were in the covered seats, though, and there was quite a bit of wind. Most of the stadium is uncovered--good to know if rain is in the forecast.

Very modern and well laid out, it was full when we went and getting in and out was very easy. The usual fast food and beer outlets were well organised to handle large volumes of people in a short time.

Had a great time I would defiantly recommend going to a game it's cheap and it's a great atmosphere, even if you don't know the game of rugby. Go chiefs!
