Central Energy Trust Arena (NZ)
Formerly known as Arena 1 and FMG Stadium, Central Energy Trust Arena is Palmerston North's primary outdoor stadium. Overlooking the field, the redeveloped grandstand was completed in March 2005 and complements the highly-regarded playing surface. The venue has hosted a range of international and national sporting fixtures including a match during the British and Irish Lions 2005 tour. The stadium was home to the first ever Super 12 Rugby match.
The Corporate Lounge built as part of the upgrade is extremely popular as a venue both during sports matches and also as a function venue in its own right. With the ability to host up to 200 guests seated around tables and 360 degree views of the city and surrounding region this is certainly one of the city's more spectacular venues.
