Westpac Stadium Wellington

Westpac Stadium, previously known as WestpacTrust Stadium, is a major sporting venue in Wellington, New Zealand. Due to its shape, it is colloquially known as The Cake-Tin in other parts of New Zealand, although the locals refer to it by either its proper name or simply as The Stadium. Fans of football team Wellington Phoenix refer to the stadium as The Ring of Fire. The stadium was built in 1999 by Fletcher Construction and is situated close to major transport facilities (such as Wellington Railway Station) one kilometre north of the CBD. It was built on reclaimed railway land, which was surplus to requirements.

The stadium has a capacity of nearly 36,000 including the corporate boxes; 40,000 with temporary seating. It was built to replace Athletic Park, the city’s old rugby stadium, which had fallen into disrepair and was poorly situated for the demands of modern sport. It has since been redeveloped for residential use. The new stadium is one of the best in New Zealand.

The stadium is a multi-purpose facility, though used mainly for rugby union and one-day cricket. It is the home of the Wellington Air New Zealand Cup and the Hurricanes Super 14 teams and is the home venue for the Wellington Phoenix for A-League games. The stadium has also been used for rugby league matches. Australian rules football exhibition matches were played in 2000 and 2001.
