Eden Park at Dusk

There is no doubt that New Zealand is a sports crazy nation – and the time spent on sports news in TVNZ’s daily 6pm news bulletin may seem to far outstrip time spent reporting international news, politics or the economy.


The national rugby team, the All Blacks, has won the World Cup three times and is considered one of the most successful sports teams in world history. Going to an All Blacks home game is a real experience. Matches are usually between June & October.

The Black Ferns are the country’s highly successful women’s rugby team - with five Women's Rugby World Cup titles.

NZ also goes gaga over Super Rugby, a competition running between February and July. The country’s leading women players set the rugby landscape alight with Super Rugby Aupiki.
