If you are on the older side of the stadium the uncovered food vans are just rubbish and hellishly expensive so to take the kids to the rugby for an experience just becomes too expensive. They either need to drop the prices of the crappy fired food or if they insist on charging so much then at least provide some... More

The best stadium in the world for rugby. Pitch is consistently perfect and seating is positioned as close as you can get to the field. I love this place - healthy food choices are lacking - my only gripe (but I go there to experience the sport on the pitch!)

An interesting game, liked the cultural intro, not so keen on the Disney dancers as I'm not sure who it was aimed at....

I had not been to a Chiefs match before this and really enjoyed seeing Hamilton's stadium for myself and finding out what the cow bells country and its Bay of Plenty neighbors do at big matches which has its own feel compared to We'll Ington. Interesting experience but not cheap.

Saw a good match - the stadium was smaller than expected. Steps to the seats were quite steep with no handrail so difficult for me as I have rheumatoid arthritis. Bus service on match days was free and made getting to and from the match so easy.

Love the stadium which must rank as one of the best anywhere for watching sport. If it wasn't for the food quality, would give it a 5/5 score. Normally, because of other feedback received, I do not eat at the stadium but just had to last time. I thought a safe choice would be a pie but it was inedible.... More

We attended a recent rugby match here with The Chiefs playing the Crusaders. This is a great ground for viewing sport. We sat on the upper level of the new stand and had a great view, would recommend the upper level as our friends were on the lower level and the view wasn't so great.

We took in a game at Waikato in Hamilton with two teams from the Super 15 League. These people love their rugby & show it. All for a remarkably low price of $25, making the game very family friendly. Our seats were in the lower bowl at approx mid field about 20 rows up - perfect viewing to take in... More
