The new Te Kaha Stadium in Christchurch is expected to bring $50 million per year to the Canterbury region.

Construction of the $683 million complex is full steam ahead after years of planning conjecture and stalled progress.

It is due to be completed midway through 2026. Venues Otautahi Chief Executive, Caroline Harvie-Teare, says the venue will attract over 200 events per year and welcome over 500,000 guests.

Harvie-Teare spoke to Corin Dann.
