stadium is a great shape to watch football. food is a little pricey a little out of the way for the main public transport system but thats Auckland for you.

Great venue with good parking options. Try and book tickets along the side stand rather than behind the goals.

Went to the FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier yesterday v New Caledonia at North Harbour - pathetic organisation from the start. An international match should attract at least 20 000 people so the QBE stadium holding 25 000 should have been perfect but the total lack of advertising and perhaps the ticket price ($30) coupled with the lack of liaising...

HOLY MOLY. Best experience with my brothers. We went to watch the u-20 soccer World Cup final. It couldn't of got better, good seating, great staff, but some staff were a bit to harsh. There are some who try to be annoying, but my bros cheered me up, I want to go again in the future, #Bestexperienceever

It's just a stadium. We have been a few times to watch soccer matches. Since I haven't been to any other stadiums, I can not compare them.

It's a short drive north from Auckland CBD but you can also get there by bus. Parking areas aren't huge but there is parking on the surrounding streets and shopping mall. Access to the stadium is easy and seating blocks are clearly marked. There's always security staff at the venue and they will assist you when asked. Refreshments can be... More

Seat close to playing area. Have grassed area at each end for families. Parking can be a problem so if coming from city - take the bus.

Nice stadium, NZers will complain about how it is so far from the city when it actually isn't that far when you compare it to other cities around the world! Nice place to come if you want to just go for a jog as well. Close to the mall.

The pitch was a disgrace for a supposedly top NZ venue in Auckland - painted dirt to give impression of green field .....Traveled 8 hours for A League football game (Phoenix) . Parking near the stadium a rort ($10 cash). Gates open an hour from kick off - nothing to do but wait, wait around with no food or toilet... More
