13 December, 2017. Tonga gains international standard playing field with completion of Teufaiva Stadium upgrade Today the New Zealand High Commissioner to Tonga, Sarah Walsh, officially marked the completion of the Teufaiva playing field which has been upgraded to international standards for the benefit of the people of Tonga.

In 2014, the New Zealand Government announced that it would contribute NZ$2 million towards upgrading Tonga’s national stadium in Nuku’alofa.

The aims of New Zealand's contribution were to upgrade the Teufaiva Stadium playing field to encourage tourism, provide a quality venue for international, national and community events, and promote sports and active lifestyles for all ages.

The New Zealand High Commissioner praised the work of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the New Zealand company, Field Drainage Specialists, who installed irrigation and drainage systems, and the new playing surface, ahead of schedule.

The major construction works have been built to World Rugby standards, and earlier this year provided the opportunity for international test rugby matches to return to the Kingdom after nine years.

“New Zealand’s investment in the Teufaiva playing field is not only an investment in the future of sports in Tonga today, but one which will continue to serve Tonga and its people long into the future”, said Ms Walsh.
