The All Blacks Experience is offering FREE visits for Auckland schools from now until Monday 4 July thanks to Auckland Unlimited's Reactivate Tāmaki Makaurau programme.

On a trip to the All Blacks Experience, students learn about New Zealand history, national identity, Māori culture, leadership and team work, amongst other things!  Students don’t need to be rugby fans – our purpose is to share the legacy of the Black jersey and inspire our visitors to strive for greatness, no matter who they are or where they’re from. 

The All Blacks Experience Education Programme helps students understand what it means to make, shape and be an All Black or Black Fern. Students will learn about culture, teamwork, storytelling and have a chance to put their knowledge and skills to the test. Suitable for all ages, the All Blacks Experience provides inspiration and insight that tie into identified learning outcomes and NZ Curriculum Achievement Objectives.  For more information on the Education Programme please click here

The All Blacks Experience takes visitors behind the scenes of one of the world’s most successful teams and see if they have what it takes to pull on the Black jersey.  Experience the history of our national teams, hear from the players what it takes to represent their nation and see the moments that made history.

Soak up the atmosphere in the changing rooms before the game, walk through the tunnel and step out on to hallowed turf and as you experience the mighty Haka through our fully immersive on-field experience.

You'll get to go head to head with friends and whanau and put your skills to the test, or test yourself against some of the best players in the world to see if you have what it takes to pull on the Black jersey!

All Blacks Experience will be moving to being open Tuesday - Sunday from Tuesday 7 June (after Queen's Birthday Weekend) to accommodate school visits. The free school visits are based on a first come, first served basis so schools are encouraged to register their interest now.
