Te Kaha Stadium
Te Kaha Stadium is a new 30,000-capacity stadium under construction in Christchurch, New Zealand. Also referred to as the Canterbury Multi-Use Arena, the new $683 million (NZD) stadium is a replacement for the 43,000-capacity Lancaster Park, which was damaged in the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake and subsequently demolished in 2019. Since then, events in Christchurch have been held at a temporary stadium at Rugby League Park, currently known as Apollo Projects Stadium.
The rectangular stadium will incorporate a roof and 25,000 permanent seats with an additional 5,000 temporary seats in a 'stage pocket' which can be removed to allow for concerts which can host up to 36,000 spectators. The official website says its acoustics will rival the best arenas globally, with every seat in the house delivering a wonderful view, enhanced technology, continuous concourses, 23 corporate suites, a large function lounge, terraces, 23 food and beverage outlets celebrating the best produce of the local region and a wide variety of premium and general admission seating options Te Kaha has the guest experience at its heart.
Construction commenced in 2022 and the stadium is expected to be completed in mid-2026.
