The car park is located underneath the Fran Wilde walkway with vehicle access off Waterloo Quay at the traffic lights opposite the entrance to CentrePort (and adjacent to the overbridge between CentrePort and the Stadium walkway).

General event parking

A limited number of car parks are available to the public on event day. This may not apply however for world cup and one-off events. If in doubt, please contact us.

Event details will confirm individual event cost and car park opening time.

Event day car parking can be booked in advance. Once purchased these are non-refundable (most especially on event day). The cut-off time for advance booking is one week prior to the event - this is to allow enough time to mail you the car park pass.
