The Stadium
Capacity: 17,000

Rugby Park Stadium is a rugby union venue and home ground for ITM Cup team Southland. Rugby Park Stadium is located on the corner of Elles Road and Tweed Street in Invercargill. It has a capacity of 17,000, although in former incarnations has accommodated up to 30,000 in the 1960s before the facility was further developed with seating over the proceeding decades.

In 2001, the Stadium was redeveloped and the dilapidated South Stand, which was built in 1923, was replaced with brand new facilities.

The refurbished stand boasts seating for 5,000, modern changing, player, official and media facilities, hospitality lounges and offices.

The Highlanders play occasionally at Rugby Park drawing large crowds. The football (soccer) team Spirit FC also play at Rugby Park Stadium. Many local events are held at rugby park as well.
