Event day car parking can be booked in advance.  Contact the Stadium Trust office on 04-473-3881 or email  The cut-off time for advance booking is one week prior to the event - this is to allow enough time to mail you the car park pass.

Around the Stadium

Try to avoid the Thorndon/Wadestown area.  It is restricted to residents only and stringent tow away enforcement will apply. If you have a regular city car park, we suggest using it and walking to the Stadium or catch a shuttle.

Coach parking  

There is a very limited number of coach parks at the Stadium available for certain events. For certain major events, your coach driver will have a special parking area at the port or another location near the railway station. In this instance it is a short walk from the coach parking areas to the turnstiles. Your bus or coach will remain in the parking space for the return journey.

Coach operators bringing a bus to a stadium event:

All coach parking, drop offs and pick ups must be pre-arranged through the:

P O Box 9336
Phone:  (04) 499 7334

The Stadium Shuttle is the only bus permitted to drop patrons off at the top of the ramp.

Commuter parking  

During the week, the Stadium car park is available for commuter car parking.

When Stadium event days fall on a weekday, the car park may be closed for commuter car parking, or there may be a restricted number of car parks available. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for parking updates.

We are happy to offer free parking for motorbikes under the western pedestrian ramp. This area is covered and has steel framing which can be used to secure bicycles as well. Please note bikes are not to be parked or chained to the fences along the Fran Wilde Walkway or ramps on event day.

Function parking 

Parking is available on the Mezzanine car park (access is half way up the main vehicle ramp) with a $10 flat rate. Parking is free for weekend functions, and those commencing after 7pm on weeknights. Two 'Pay and Display' machines are located on the Mezzanine Floor. Please note payment is by coins or credit card.

From the Mezzanine car park, use the central staircase to access the walkway which will take you to the main entrance of the Stadium, and to your function room.  See also the map (pdf document) at the bottom of this page.

Height clearance 

  • Mezzanine floor: 2.2 metres
  • Ground floor: the roof height is variable but 2.2 metres clearance is a guideline. 

Car parks at the entrance have higher clearance but on event days this space may be occupied by buses.
