Been to several different functions here, concerts, rugby, horse shows, rugby league, private functions. Always a great experience. Winter you need to wear warm clothing as it can be cold even though there is a roof, the wind does whistle through. Highly recommend.

Nice stadium, quite new, has a roof which is always a good feature in NZ! Plenty of students going crazy at highlanders' games, it's quite good! I enjoyed my game there

Watched the Highhlanders Super rugby here and had a great night. Students down one end keeping everyone entertained, covered stadium and all seats with a great view. Very close to centre of town.

I was worried that the demolition of the House of Pain (former home of the local rugby team) may never be adequately replaced - but I was wrong. This location is fabulous. It has been awesome for all events that I have attended. If you're going to Dunedin and looking for some sites to see this would have to be... More

This is the only fully covered stadium in the world with natural grass. Built in 2011 for the Rugby Cup, it offers a nice view of the game and concerts no matter where you sit. Of course you must go for a rugby game!! It is pure adrenaline!!

I always enjoy watching the All Blacks or any other team in this stadium for that matter. With the roof overhead you know the weather is always going to be good. The facilities are very handy so it's not too much of a mission getting food or drink. Without doubt the best stadium in NZ for sport.

We have been here several times now and will come again in the future. Great place to watch sport without the weather elements affecting you. Watching highlanders rugby my favorite. Easley. Access and well behaved patrons make this an awesome experience.

I went to Forsyth Barr Stadium to hear Ravi Zachias. I was impressed by the Stadium layout and the seating. There was no problems with hearing and the seating was comfortable.
