DELIVERING VALUE THROUGH TRADITION AND INNOVATION AT NEW ZEALAND’S NATIONAL STADIUM
Partnership opportunities at Eden Park continue to evolve as we partner with new brands, consumer patterns change, and our economy adjusts to ever-changing commercial pressures. Our team is committed to delivering value to ensure the relationship is more than just a sign on the grandstand. Between balancing traditional benefits and innovative opportunities, our partnership with STIHL is a fantastic example of leveraging expertise and reputation from two globally-recognised brands – including our Head Groundsman Blair Christiansen who has almost two decades of experience at the Park! Special thanks to FUSE and STIHL for their creativity and vision to look beyond the usual goalposts.
CATEGORY PARTNER – Official Outdoor Power Equipment Partner
As an official partner of Eden Park, STIHL provides our Turf Team with all the power they need, with a superb range of STIHL Battery equipment that keeps the garden of Eden maintained year-round. Eden Park is committed to maximising the benefit of partnerships through innovation. What started as a conversation around prime exposure during international fixtures (in the form of static signage), was developed through STIHL, FUSE Network, and Eden Park, into a partnership that has delivered content creation, social competitions, and equipping the turf team with the STIHL Battery range.
Content Creation – Blair’s Backyard

A message from STIHL
“At STIHL we love the idea that Eden Park is not only the national stadium, it is our most famous back lawn… not just a venue or a brand, we see passionate people who have a devotion to the garden of Eden, so Eden Park was perfect! To tell the story of our powerful extensive battery tool range we asked the Turf Manager, Blair Christiansen, to tell our story. This combination of the stadium brand and such a credible personality gave us a platform to take consumers behind the scenes at Eden Park and to see first-hand how STIHL battery garden tools perform.”
