Approved Drugs
You may have and take personal prescription medication or over-the-counter medicine if required. The prescription medication must be personally made out to the person in possession of it.

Illicit Drugs
Auckland Stadiums does not condone the use of illicit drugs and it is illegal to buy, sell or possess such drugs in our venues. All illicit drugs are potentially dangerous; there are no harmless drugs. The only way to avoid risks is to not take illicit drugs at all.

We have amnesty bins located in the immediate vicinity outside of our venues. You can surrender any illicit drugs in your possession in an amnesty bin without repercussion before arriving at an entry gate. If we find drugs at the gate entry point during a bag search or pat down, then you will be denied entry and may be referred to New Zealand Police.

Our security measures are there to help keep everyone safe, but it is acknowledged that some people will still try to bring illicit drugs to events. As a venue operator, we take our duty of care to all attendees very seriously. Our aim is for everyone to have a fun time and be safe doing so.

At some events, we will have drug checking services on site. This service is supported by legislation in New Zealand and is provided to help keep everyone safe. The service is free and confidential and aims to reduce harm and save lives by allowing users to make informed decisions.

While illicit drugs are a prohibited item at our venues, security and New Zealand Police will not target drug possession for personal use within the immediate vicinity of the drug checking service.

During the event we want our patrons to know that you can come to us for help if you or your friends need it, without fear of getting in trouble at any time. We have chill out zones, crowd care facilities, and St John medical services all on site. We ask all patrons requiring help or information to be honest with medical staff and Crowd Care teams about what you have consumed so the support teams know how best to help you.

You can also check the following sites for any warnings about specific drug types that have been flagged as especially harmful: or

● Any person suspected of selling drugs will be referred to New Zealand Police.
● There are covert staff onsite and as a condition of entry you are subject to search at any time. Staff will search for illegal items including drugs.
● If someone offers you drugs, please report them to the nearest member of security with as much information as you can.


Drink responsibly, both in terms of how much you drink and the speed you drink.

● Alcohol and other drugs can impair your judgement. Don’t feel pressured into doing anything you aren’t comfortable with.
● If you are having a bad time or struggling but don’t feel you need medical attention, visit the Crowd Care Team.
