Douglas Track and Field at The Trusts Arena[edit]

The outdoor facility attached to The Trusts Arena, known as "Douglas Track and Field", is a track and field facility that served as the home of New Zealand Football Championship team Waitakere United. Douglas Track and Field was home to the now defunct rugby league team, the Waitakere Rangers of the defunct Bartercard Cup competition, and has also served as training grounds for teams such as the Warriors and is the training ground for the All Blacks when in Auckland. The Waitakere City Rugby and Athletic Club is also based at the grandstand, and the facility hosted the 2010 Australasian Gaelic Games.

Notable performances[edit]

Boy band One Direction played their first headlining tour in New Zealand, with their Up All Night Tour on April 21, 2012 respectively.
