- Capacity 48 000
Eden Park is the main sports ground in Auckland, New Zealand for both rugby union during winter, and cricket in summer. To accommodate both sports, the cricket pitch is removable. The ground is located three kilometres southwest of Auckland's CBD, straddling the boundary between the Kingsland and Mt. Eden suburbs.
Eden Park has a crowd capacity of 48,000, currently the largest of any New Zealand sports arena. There are no standing areas, and the whole capacity listed above is seated. Temporary seating in front of the ASB Stand and the West Stand (usually only used for international rugby matches) is required for this capacity to be reached. Due to sight-screens and the longer duration of cricket matches, cricket capacity is significantly less. If the stadium is redeveloped for the RWC 2011 hosting requirements the capacity will increase to 60,000.

A multi-purpose facility at the heart of the North Harbour region for the whole community to enjoy; North Harbour Stadium is one of New Zealand?s leading entertainment and sporting venues.
In early 1990, a handful of visionary people assembled to discuss the concept of a multi-purpose sports, recreation, cultural and entertainment facility for the North Harbour region. Located at Albany and opening in March 1997 the $41 million project became a reality, thanks to the support of the hundreds who contributed financially.
Few stadiums can boast the ability and flexibility of North Harbour Stadium to host such a wide variety of sporting events. All Black test matches and trial games, Kiwi Rugby League Internationals, All White World Cup qualifying matches, International Gridiron, Soccer?s Chatham Cup final, Super 12 and NPC Rugby fixtures and the FIFA Under 17 World Football Championship.
