This expansive stadium has capacity for over 17,000 patrons and offers various corporate lounges and corporate boxes for hire.

Over 90% of the grandstand seating is covered to ensure fans can enjoy events and entertainment in comfort, whatever the weather.

Widely known for being the home of Baypark Speedway in Tauranga, this venue hosts Speedway and other motorsport events all season long. Stock-cars, high-octane drift cars and even jetsprint boats – Mercury Stadium does it all.
