Professional, Helpful and Friendly!​

We have worked with many other stadiums in Auckland but The staff at Barfoot & Thompson Stadium seriously make running events stress free.
They are professional, helpful and friendly and consistently go above and beyond to meet all our needs. The venue itself has everything you need and more and the policies are user friendly. I would highly recommend this stadium to anyone wanting to book an event big or small, we book our tournaments years in advance to ensure we can continue our relationship with the best venue in Auckland.

Amazing Staff!

The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. As always there are last minute issues that arise and the staff are amazing in helping to resolve these issues. The venue provided a great atmosphere for the tournament and the feedback from the audience has been fantastic. I would definitely use the venue again for future events.

Perfect Location & Size!

I recently used the Stadium for a very large Factory Sale. The onsite support from the team and our Event Co-Ordinator, Zoe, was outstanding. The venue itself was perfect due to the location, size, parking spaces, event equipment provided as part of the hirage and overall venue flow. I will definitely be rebooking the stadium next year and highly recommend the space to anyone wanting to use it for a similar "sale type" event with large crowds and a large volume of stock.

Affordable & Well-Run!

It's so nice to deal with a venue that is affordable and well-run. Anything we asked for would be provided quickly without a fuss. We felt like we were valued customers, even when we asked for strange things (like wanting to run until 3 a.m.). We will certainly be looking to use the venue again.

Excellent Venue!

The Stadium was an excellent venue for our son's pre-wedding celebrations, combining an evening of Dance, song, show, Medhi, and excellent food. We had street stalls set up around the stadium and people could help themselves to the variety of cuisine. Michael, our contact person was very accommodating and helped whenever asked. he helped with many of the contractors, to set up. All staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the evening and with a smile.
