Posted on by Sarah Jones in News, Press Releases.

The infamous covered pitch at Forsyth Barr Stadium will be open to the community this Sunday (4 November) to enjoy and use as they would their local park.

Dunedin Venues, CEO, Darren Burden comments, “We want to see as many families as possible enjoying this rare opportunity to get up close and personal with our turf. We’ll have soccer goals in place from the earlier Otago United game, so people can bring along a ball and have a kick or just bring a picnic blanket and camera and enjoy the view.”

Admission to the pitch is free and available between 2:30pm and 4pm following the Otago United match at 12 noon. Carparking is available in the Stadium carpark for a gold coin donation and access onto the pitch is through Gate D, TicketDirect Stand.

For this Sunday only, the Stadium markets will be extended until 4pm.
