Fans can meet under the sails at Queens Wharf and join local favourites Batucada as they samba their way toward the stadium, from 5.30pm.

With plenty of flags waving, you can show your loyalty to the mighty All Whites, or support the visitors. The party atmosphere will be palpable with exciting music playing around town and along the parade route.

Football supporters and commuters alike will enjoy the salsa sounds of Acapulco-born Carlos Navae and his band, at the Railway Station. Down on the waterfront, the Wellington City Shake-Em-On-Downers will be sharing their own brand of Dixieland and New Orleans jazz, while acoustic duo Filthy Two keep the crowd rocking with party classics.

Lucky ticket holders can kick their heels up with the award-winning LatinBeat Dancers who’ll be bringing a taste of carnival to the Fran Wilde Walkway.

The stadium opens at 5pm - all tickets are valid for the earlier start time. Fans can park at the stadium from 7am to start their match day.
