Jerry Collins Stadium is a multi-purpose sporting complex in Porirua, New Zealand. It currently serves as the home ground of rugby union club Northern United RFC and the Wellington Rugby League representative team, as well as the second home for Team Wellington of the New Zealand Football Championship. Porirua Park also has a Softball field located at the western end of the park.
Porirua Park serves as the secondary home for Team Wellington in the New Zealand Football Championship. As the primary home stadium Newtown Park also serves as the primary track and field complex in Wellington, clashes with athletics events often results in at least one match being played in Porirua every season. With expansion expected to occur for the 2010-11 season, a Porirua-based franchise has bid for inclusion, which would likely be based full-time at Porirua Park.
Porirua Park serves as the home for midweek preseason friendlies between professional club Wellington Phoenix FC and local amateur clubs.
