MainPower Stadium is operated by the North Canterbury Sport and Recreation Trust.
The facility was officially named MainPower Stadium, after MainPower signed a major sponsorship deal with the North Canterbury Sport and Recreation Trust who are responsible for operating the building. Locally owned, McAlpines Mitre 10 secured the naming rights for the indoor courts and fitness centre.
MainPower Stadium is a facility that will benefit the whole Waimakariri community and everyone who lives here. The Stadium houses sports courts as well as a fitness facility, changing rooms, coaching and meeting spaces, and seating for up to 500 spectators. Its location on Coldstream Road in Rangiora places it next to other popular sporting facilities.
