Seddon Park is the home of cricket in Hamilton. The headquarters for Northern Districts Cricket Association and the Northern Brave, Seddon Park hosts several international fixtures every season.
It is a regular stop for touring teams competing against New Zealand’s Black Caps in five-day test cricket, one-day internationals, and T20 matches, with a crowd capacity of 10,500 people.
Seddon Park has several rooms available for private functions including meetings, birthday parties, weddings, cultural events and other celebrations.
Tree-lined grassy banks around two-thirds of the ground give Seddon Park a distinct ‘village green’ feel. This was noted as one of its striking features by influential cricket magazine The Cricketer, which in 2012 rated it as one of the 20 best test cricket venues in the world.
Seddon Park is equipped with four floodlights, which are used for day-night matches at both domestic and international levels.
