It’s not uncommon for the cricket ball to be hit into areas where fans are. Please stay safe by keeping your eye on the ball and remind your friends and family to do the same. For full event information including details about running times, what to bring, what not to bring and more, click here.

Disability parking, with valid mobility pass, is available on Riccarton Ave. Wheelchair access is available via both Gate A and Gate B, however we recommend entering via Gate A as this is closest to the accessible seating area. Valid match tickets are required to access these parking spaces and entry points.

Street parking is available on the streets surrounding Hagley Park. Free parking is also available at Christchurch Arena for those who wish to use public transport or taxis for the short journey to Hagley Oval. For information about public transport, click here.

You can bring your own homemade food to the game. Just remember to use a soft chilly bag that’s smaller than 20 litres. There will also be an array of food concessions at the venue. No alcohol can be brought into the match, but you can bring sealed, unopened plastic bottles (up to 1.5 litre in size) containing non-alcoholic beverages for personal consumption. A reminder that no glass or cans can be brought into the venue.

GA and Family area
Please note that the grass embankment does not have any fixed seating. If you have a General Admission (grass embankment) ticket/seat, a low profile portable/collapsible seat will be permitted if the base of the seat is no higher than 300mm from the ground and no wider than 600mm. We recommend checking the venue’s conditions of entry for more info.

As there is limited space on the top of the embankments for deck chairs, once that space fills up, no more will be allowed. However, lower beach chairs are permitted on the embankment slope. We ask you to consider others around you when using these chairs. We can’t allow umbrellas into the ground as they create a sight issue for patrons sitting behind. Limited amounts of free sunscreen will be available, however we encourage you to bring some extra sunscreen along to get you through the late afternoon.

This is a non-smoking venue. Patrons are asked to exit the ground when wishing to smoke, including the use of vaping devices and E-cigarettes.

You can leave the ground and re-enter by being scanned out, but you will be subject to the same security checks on the way back in.


Fan safety is our number one priority and we need your help to ensure events are as safe as possible. If you are attending as part of a group, you are responsible for knowing the contact details of everyone in your group should they be required by the Ministry of Health for the purpose of contact tracing. Where possible, share tickets with your group before the event – through Ticketek you can forward your tickets to your group which means each member of your group can easily be traced if required.

Prior to attending the match, please ensure you download the NZ COVID Tracer app. QR codes will be available to scan upon entry and throughout the venue. If you are feeling unwell or displaying any symptoms, please stay home.
