Spark Arena is thrilled to be one of the newest members of the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Initiative.

At Spark Arena, accessibility is one of our top priorities. We want to ensure that all visitors at our venue feel welcome and supported and leave having had an enjoyable experience.

We are proud to not only be members of the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Initiative, but to be the first Arena in New Zealand to join the initiative. We look forward to welcoming and supporting all our customers in any capacity they may need. The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Initiative will enable us the opportunity to connect with and better understand all our customers needs and better assist them during their time with us.

Although the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Initiative is not very common in New Zealand yet, we hope to inspire other kiwi businesses particularly more venues to join the initiative too.

How does this work?

If you have a hidden disability and you would like our staff to be notified at one of our events, you are welcome to borrow a Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyard to use for the duration of your event. This will indicate to our staff that you have a hidden disability which will ensure you receive the support that you need. If you require any assistance, please ask any member of our staff wearing a sunflower pin or badge.

You can enter through Entry B, our designated mobility entrance (this is to the right of the Box Office). Once inside, head to internal cloaking on the left to collect your lanyard.

When you leave the Arena, you will see dropboxes located upstairs opposite Door 15 and downstairs just to the right of the lifts (opposite Door 1). Please return your lanyards to these boxes as you exit.
