Mt Smart Stadium (NZ)
Mt Smart Stadium is a major outdoor rectangular sports stadium located in the New Zealand city of Auckland. The 30,000-capacity stadium is the home ground of NRL team New Zealand Warriors and new Super Rugby team Moana Pasifika. It was used as the main venue for the Auckland 1990 Commonwealth Games.
The stadium features two main grandstands - on the western and eastern sides, the newest of which was completed in 2005. There is seating at the southern end while a grass hill is situated at the northern end. Mt Smart Stadium reverted to its original name after it's long-term naming rights deal with Ericsson came to an end in mid-2006. It has also previously hosted soccer with former NSL side Football Kingz playing at the venue. There was speculation that at some point in the future the NZ Warriors may move to Eden Park and Mt Smart Stadium may become a Speedway venue, however that hasn't eventuated and it continues to operate as a rectangular sports stadium.
