Pitch invasion at stadium

Forsyth Barr Stadium will become the scene of a pitch invasion on Sunday as Dunedin residents are invited to use the field as they would a public park.

"We'll have soccer goals in place from the earlier Otago United game, so people can bring along a ball and have a kick or just bring a picnic blanket and camera and enjoy the view," Dunedin Venues chief executive Darren Burden said.

For this Sunday only, the Stadium Markets will be extended until 4pm.

Mr Burden said admission to the pitch would be free and available between 2.30pm and 4pm, following the Otago United match at noon.

Carparking would be available at the stadium for a gold-coin donation and access on to the pitch would be through Gate D in the TicketDirect Stand, he said.
