It’s all in the name

One New Zealand has secured a 10 year naming rights partnership with Te Kaha Stadium, currently under construction in Christchurch.

Now called One New Zealand Stadium, the iconic 36,000-concert capacity, roofed venue is expected to open in 2026, in the central city.  The naming partnership spans 10 years, from 2026-36.

“This is an example of our commitment to the South Island and Canterbury,” said Jason Paris, One New Zealand CEO.

“One New Zealand Stadium will bring the best music, live entertainment and sports, including the mighty Warriors, to Christchurch and we’re stoked to be the naming rights partner.

“Cantabrians have been waiting a long time for a world-class stadium, and this multi-use arena is certain to deliver. We’re proud of our existing long-term partnerships, whether it’s our 25 years (longest in NRL history) with the One New Zealand Warriors, or five years of music with Live Nation, and we believe the best partnerships are when both companies share a passion for truly delivering for their customers over the long term.”

The company will also be working with stadium management group Venues Ōtautahi to deliver world-class coverage and connectivity in the stadium. Venues Ōtautahi chief executive Caroline Harvie-Teare describes it as “a testament to our shared commitment to creating a venue reflecting the best of our community”. The partnership will enable Venues Ōtautahi to generate significant commercial value while staying true to its core values of diversity, inclusion and social good,” she says.
