Eden Park, located in Auckland, is the spiritual home of the All Blacks. The powerful New Zealand team had not lost a match at this ground since 1994, so the tension was especially high when the British and Irish Lions took on the team in their 1st and 2nd tests (24 June and 8 July). They also met the Auckland Blues here on 7 June.
Eden Park was founded in 1900, and is New Zealand’s largest stadium. With a seating capacity of 60,000 the atmosphere is guaranteed to be electric.
