Eden Park is New Zealand's largest sports stadium, located in central Auckland on the boundary between the suburbs of Mount Eden and Kingsland. The stadium is primarily used for rugby union in winter and cricket in summer.
In 2011 it hosted pool matches, two quarter-finals, both semi-finals and the final of Rugby World Cup. In doing so it became the first stadium in the world to host two Rugby World Cup finals, having held the inaugural final in 1987.
Rugby World Cup 2021 matches will be played across three world-class venues - Waitakere Stadium, Whangarei’s Northland Events Centre and Eden Park.
The pool stage of the competition will be contested across three match days – Saturday 18, Thursday 23 and Tuesday 28 September – at Waitakere Stadium and Whangarei’s Northland Events Centre.
The quarter-finals, which are a new addition to the women’s competition for RWC 2021, will take place on Sunday 3 October at those two venues. Eden Park will then host the semi-finals on Saturday 9 October, the bronze match and RWC 2021 final on Saturday 16 October.
