Hurricanes v Highlanders Event Guide

The Investec Super Rugby Aotearoa competition is underway and we have put together a Sky Stadium event guide for the Hurricanes v Highlanders ! We are expecting large crowds for these games, so we recommend you plan ahead and leave plenty of time to get to the venue and through the gates.

  • If you are unwell, please stay at home.
