HBF Stadium April Shutdown

Reading time: 5 minutes

HBF Stadium front of venue

In November 2023, the main switchboard at HBF Stadium critically malfunctioned. A detailed investigation by our electrical contractors determined that a bespoke rebuild of the switchboard would be required, resulting in the venue running on a temporary power supply since.

The switchboard build is now complete and will require a five day venue shutdown to install. We have chosen dates to minimise the impact on our valued customers and tenants.

Thursday 25 April to Monday 29 April inclusive. The venue will reopen Tuesday 30 April, 5:30am.

During the dates detailed above, HBF Stadium will be shut and existing programs and services that usually run on those days will not be available. If you have a child enrolled in Swim School you will not have that lesson debited from your account. Kids Gym participants have not been charged for classes occurring on these dates. All upfront memberships will be extended by one week and direct debits will be paused for one week to account for the inconvenience.

HBF Stadium and VenuesWest would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers and stakeholders for cooperating with us over the past five months while our team worked through the power issues.

We look forward to welcoming patrons and staff back to the venue on April 30.
