Wellington ready for stadium challenge
By Chris Morris
The chairman of the trust running Wellington’s Westpac Stadium is ready for competition with Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin. Wellington Regional Stadium Trust chairman Paul Collins was responding to comments this week by David Davies, the man tasked with making a success of Dunedin’s roofed venue, who this week predicted “aggressive” competition between the venues.
A Berl report released earlier this month found the venue [Westpac Stadium] had generated $484 million for the Wellington economy, more than double original forecasts.
