So excited to have booked day 3 and 4 for Dunedin, also bringing the Aussie boyfriend along. Not sure he knows what its going to be like yet! :lol:


Not exactly sure you are either tbh. Hope you're not expecting vast numbers singing along a la Sydney or Edgbaston, much more sedate I'm afraid. Hope that does'nt take the edge off for you.



I was thinking more like Sri Lanka 2012 atmosphere?

You've certainly given that some thought before responding ! It unlikely there will be even a small percentage of the numbers of us in SL. As with the last NZ tour it is the 2nd winter tour, so cost is an issue. Then theres the 2 upcoming Ashes series.
There will be enough of us to make our presence known, but I'll be surprised at anything remotely raucous.

I was watching the 20/20 game this morning and one of the comentators said the Dunedin capacity was 3,500. I thought it was more like 6,500 for tests.

Anyone know the real figure? What is the point of having a test if only 3,500 can get in?

My understanding was that the capacity as it stands is 3,500. However, temporary stand or stands will increase the capacity to around 6,500

Hence the reason why most, including myself and mate, have ordered, paid and received already, a five day pass for Dunedin

I would guess that if Christchurch was available, it would be the first choice for a test in the South Island, as I think, politics dictates that the South island gets at least one test

Happy to be corrected of course ! Only 19 days until off for me !

Stopping off in Hong Kong for two nights. Always wanted to visit HK and listening to those who have been to NZ for past tours, a stop over seemed a good idea.

Flying from LHR on Cathay Pacific. Arrive in Dunedin via Auckland on Monday 4th, late afternoon. I think I am right in saying you and Rob fly in on the 5th ? If so a pre test beer in down town Dunedin seems approriate ? ;)
