Default Cricket NZ v England- Eden Park Where best to Sit??

Hello
Anyone got experience of watching cricket at Eden park and can advise us what section might be best to buy tickets for family including 2 x very young kids (2 + 4) at Eden park for the cricket.
May be different answers for the different matches that are on different days.
We would really like to be out of the sun if possible especially for the day match on 15th feb that starts at 2pm.

5th Feb 20 overs match starts 7pm
15th Feb 50 overs match starts 2pm.

Thanks in advance

Might depend on the seating arrangements! Is seating allocated or is it just general admittance and you sit where you can?

We've gone for the family enclosure ie NBNZ Neighbourhood combos (this gives you a row and seat number) as I understand that this avoids the worst of any (?) bad behaviour, not sure about the sun in that area - I'd be interested too.

Seeing as how you have young kids I think you should ask for the National Bank Neighbourhood. They have a special deal for combo adult sprog tickets.

edit: lardyl beat me to it...

I have never been to see cricket match before, and its like a dream come true for my son and i to see this match, we've got tickets seated in the family stand, I just can't wait to see it. Are there lots of the expats from here going ?

Hi Lardyl,
i got that completely wrong didn't I, good job i checked my tickets, and seen that my tickets were for the 12th at Seddon Park, . We had great time, what an experience, but was a shame to watch England be beaten so convincingly.
Glad they did better at Eden Park, wish I could have been there too. When is the 3 day test ?
