Located in the heart of Albany, some 19kms from Auckland city, the North Harbour Stadium will have a seating capacity of 30,000 for this year's Rugby World Cup.
While the ground has staged soccer and rugby league internationals, as well as major international concerts, it is primarily used for rugby and is home to provincial outfit North Harbour.
It will host three 2011 Rugby World Cup games in total: France's meeting with Japan and then the Springboks' clashes with Namibia and Samoa.
