I love this venue. Probably a bit biased as my favourite rugby team the Chiefs are from here. Food is a bit pricey but expected at a stadium sporting venue and it's pretty tasty. Toilets are maintained well. Have also hired out the conference rooms for team days and they are spacious and well Equiped.

I usually sit at the the opposite side to the green zone because the seating is better than green zone.. The value is pretty good; I've never had to pay more than $20 to sit there. I have sat in the stands and attended an event in the corporate box areas and they are great too with awesome views of... More

Have attended many sports events over the years at Waikato Stadium and thoroughly enjoy the place. Every seat gives a great view , a good size crowd always create a good atmosphere and amenities and service areas are very accessible.

Very nice and clean stadium, all safety measures visible and safety staff very obvious and around. Great place to take the kids. DOWNSIDE F&B is too expensive for the quality provided.

Waikato stadium is a great place to watch sport. Have been quite a few times. Fun to take the kids too or go with some mates. Makes a difference now food is cheaper :)

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!)

We watched rugby here and found the stadium to be clean and tidy and well maintained. Great atmosphere with heaps of locals and their cow bells. Excellent views although expensive. Easy parking, bus access. Food quality and choice needs attention.
