New Zealand Spectator Sports

The main spectator sport in New Zealand is undoubtedly rugby, which is followed with a passion here. If you can, try catching a game between the national side, the All Blacks, and Australia, which is guaranteed to be a high-octane spectacle. International games are often played in Wellington, but there are always club matches played at various towns all over New Zealand. Games are played between March and October. Other spectator sports in New Zealand which you might want to see include cricket, played between September and March, and horse racing, which runs all year.
