Albany’s North Harbour Stadium is a purpose-built, multi-code venue that caters for football, rugby and AFL.

The stadium hosts sporting occasions from community games through to high-profile national and international matches. As the centrepiece of the 23-hectare North Shore Domain, it has a large oval field in the main stadium and five surrounding sporting fields dedicated to community use. The stadium can comfortably host a crowd of 14,000 for big matchdays.

The stadium's versatility allows it to seamlessly transition from hosting elite NPC rugby in the winter, to football matches such as the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Play-Off Tournament in the summer. Summertime also sees the stadium grounds welcome cultural events such as the Sunsetter and Juicy music festivals.

Two artificial all-weather pitches and LED floodlights ensure that the community facilities are available for day and night-time use. With several flexible function rooms and private corporate hospitality facilities, guests are treated to a relaxed, inspiring environment for any special event.

North Harbour Stadium is home to New Zealand Football, Northern Region Football Federation, North Harbour Rugby Union, Marist North Harbour Rugby Club, Harbour Sport and Baseball New Zealand.
