At the gates

  • At the main gates, look for the signage colour that matches your ticket and join the queue to go through the entry process.
  • At the turnstiles, patrons with field tickets will be given a wristband to access the field. Please wear this at all times and show to security staff to enter and exit the field.
  • Please ensure you enter via the correct gate, as wristbands cannot be collected after entry.
  • It is a requirement of this tour that every patron passes through a metal wanding process before entering, so give yourself plenty of time to get inside the venue and leave any non-essentials at home.
  • We strongly recommend patrons do not bring bags. At the request of the tour, bags must be no bigger than A4 in size (30 x 21cm) and bag searches will be conducted at the gates. A temporary bag drop service will be set up in the Indoor Sports Centre down by the Railway Station. Bag drop opens at 4.30pm and closes at midnight (or once the queues for collection have gone). It is $5 per bag. Westpac Stadium holds no responsibility for this service and any queries for uncollected bags need to be directed to Wellington Indoor Sports.
  • You can bring in an empty clear plastic water bottle (max. 1 litre). Bottle caps must be removed on entry.
  • Once inside, bottles can be filled from water coolers around the concourse and field perimeter.
