Eventfinda Stadium Board of Trustee Appointments 2024

For over 25 years Eventfinda Stadium has been home to some of New Zealand’s most memorable concerts and sporting events, from artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Sting, Green Day and Van Halen, to the Silver Ferns and the Northern Mystics, Tuatara NBL team and is principally the home of Harbour Basketball and Harbour Gymnastics. Eventfinda Stadium has been a key part of Auckland’s sport and recreation landscape since 1992.

Eventfinda Stadium’s vision:

“to create spaces, places and experiences that foster and enhance the Mana of our communities”

Between 2018 and Jan 2023 a substantial renovation has been undertaken on the venue and we now regularly feature as one of the most efficient and well-respected hybrid community/commercial venues in Auckland. After a significant disruption arising from the flooding of January 27th 2023 our building has undergone $5m in renovations to bring it up to a modern and sophisticated operation.

As we progress into this new era, the Trustees are looking for a new board member to join in steering our future direction. The Board of Trustees are seeking to appoint one Board member who reside in the Auckland region with a particular focus on attracting a Chartered Accountant to the board.
