this whole stadium debate was showing how inadequate new zealand is to hold a major sporting event. a big debate over one 60,000 seat stadium, while the 2007 rugby world cup is going to have 4 over 60,000

yeah good point

Suncorp Stadium (Lang Park) is used for RL, RU & Soccer
The Gabba is used for Cricket & AFL
QSAC (previously ANZ Stadium) used to be used for football as Lang Park was too old and small. ANZ was seen to be too far from the CBD and viewing was poor so they upgraded Lang Park. It hosted U2 a couple of weeks ago, but besides that, is barely used nowadays.

Eden Park is multipurpose as it can accomodate cricket and football. Auckland is getting a new stadium anyway?? Stadium NZ?? AFAIK, Auckland will have 2 60,000 seaters. Impressive!


For a city of Auckland's size with 60,000 seaters, be prepared to see many empty seats unless you use the smaller stadiums for lower scale matches. A good crowd of 40,000 in brisbane's 52,500 seater looks underdone in such a large stadium. So for Auckland, playing a medium scale drawcard match is going to look somewhat poor. We have that problem, especially in sydney where money is the determining factor, not what is best for the spectators.

eden park can hold cricket it just can't hold it properly, playing cricket at the new(and current) eden park will be like playing rugby on a triangle field

Let's not compare NZ to Ireland. Ireland is only a third of the size in land area and a "fat" country. NZ is a long country where it would probably take three days to drive the length of it. Not to mention Ireland has another island of 60 million people right next to it.

Land has nothing to do with it, well atleast with what i was trying to say Ireland and New Zealand have a similar population. Unfortunately land doesnt build stadia people do.

I think he means that, being a "fat" country (lol), nowhere is more than a few hours from anywhere so a match in, say, Dublin will get people from all over, whereas no-ones going to travel 2 days from Dunedin to Auckland to attend a match. I think the stadiums at the moment are about right... nowhere in the country ever sells out with any regularity - at most maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

Exactly.

This map shows you're never more than a couple of hundred miles from Dublin.

people usually do travel great distances to attend sporting matches e.g. barmy army
