There is no better place to watch game than at the home of Auckland rugby since 1914, Eden Park. It goes without saying that any All Blacks match held in the city occurs here. Thanks to the 2011 Rugby World Cup and a $190 million refit, the majority of the seating is now covered in a plastic sheath, keeping the moisture out.
Eden Park has also hosted the British Empire Games, a Soviet Olympic gymnastics display, the Rugby League World Cup final and a visit by the Dalai Lama. Try wrangling yourself into a corporate box. You may be further from the action, but there's no drama at the beer queue.
This week I headed to Eden Park for three days to watch the Black Caps vs England test match. It was a nail biter to put it lightly. Aside from the actual test the stadium itself is world class, spacious and easy to navigate. The only department that could do with some improvement is the food, someone needs to sort out their burgers!
