Travel to see the All Whites play on Friday 30 May with a pre-purchased match ticket. Kick-off is at 7.30pm, and gates open 6pm.

Auckland’s motorways and roads are expected to be busy as Aucklanders make their way out of town for the long Queens Birthday weekend. Travelling by public transport to the game is the recommended option, travel on trains and the Northern Express is included with your match ticket.

Buses:
Travel on the Northern Express buses to and from the city centre is included with your pre-purchased game ticket.
Once the Northern Express arrives in the city you can easily change to a train at Britomart for Penrose Station, which is a short walk to Mt Smart Stadium.
Plan your travel early and keep your ticket for the return trip.
Regular bus services will operate as usual.

Trains:
Travel on trains up to three hours before the game starts and until the last train of the day by presenting your pre-purchased event ticket.
Additional trains will operate to Penrose Station, which is walking distance to the stadium.
Train services will be busy so plan ahead and travel early.
On Friday night the last train from Penrose Station to Britomart is 11.16pm. The last train to the south is at 12.29 on Saturday morning.

Ferry:
The Downtown Ferry Terminal is next to the Britomart Transport Centre; ferry passengers can easily change to a bus or train for transport to the concert. Regular ferry fares apply.

Driving:
Some roads in and around the stadium will be closed to traffic or have restricted access. Please ensure you have parked correctly before leaving your car. For mobility parking contact Mt Smart Stadium directly.

MBIE is a Titanic looking for an iceberg, or so it would seem. More>>
