Built on rail yards land, the $130 million stadium replaced the windswept and crumbling Athletic Park as the main venue for rugby in 2000. Due to its oval shape and corrugated steel cladding, locals quickly nicknamed it 'The Cake Tin'.
Is a multi-use ground, hosting international limited overs cricket as well as rugby and soccer matches, open-air concerts and is the venue for the hugely popular New Zealand stop on the IRB's world sevens circuit.
Film maker Peter Jackson also recorded 30,000 fans chanting during a cricket match at the WestpacTrust Stadium to use as sound effects for his Lord of the Rings trilogy.
