Hagley Oval (also known as Hagley Park New) is a cricket ground located in Hagley Park in the central city of Christchurch, New Zealand. The first recorded match on the ground was in 1867, when Canterbury cricket team hosted Otago cricket team.

Local cricket officials were forced to develop a new international venue after the Feb. 22, 2011 earthquake devastated much of central Christchurch, including Lancaster Park though its rectangular shape was becoming less suited for cricket matches anyway.

The ground on the vast green space of Hagley Park on the western edges of the city was awarded the opening game before it had been given planning permission. Opponents then launched an expensive court case to halt it.

Permission was granted in 2013 and the 12,000-capacity venue hosted its first international match in December when New Zealand played Sri Lanka in a test - the first international cricket match in the city since the earthquake.

With temporary stands to be built taking the capacity to 20,000 for the World Cup 2015.
