Wellington Stadium is nicknamed ‘The Cake Tin’ by city locals, because of its silver cylindrical appearance. It was built in 1999 as the first bowl-style stadium in the country, to offer more space for crowds, like those who descend to the venue for one-day international cricket matches. Take note of the entrance gates, called Te Uruhau and created by Te Oranga Whareaitu. The figures and symbols all have meanings, like the Raukura which stands for peace and serves as a reminder to come together in friendship and unity, even as competing teams and fans.
