Auckland mayoral challenger John Tamihere backs concerts being staged at Eden Park and a new covered sports venue adjacent to the stadium.
He made the announcement in his first major policy release, covering parks, open spaces and stadia, at Chamberlain Park on Saturday.
He said rugby league’s Warriors would eventually have to shift to Eden Park to avert a costly overhaul of their home at Mt Smart stadium.
Eden Park is losing money big time and costing ratepayers. It needs to be allowed to do more than the status quo.
