Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium, the home of the Warriors, will host a stage during Rally New Zealand event later this year.

Today Rally New Zealand organisers confirmed the stadium will act as a base for the event service park as well as hosting a Super Special Stage for the World Rally Championship round.

The four-day event will be based in Auckland from September 3 to 6.

"Auckland has a strong rally heritage going back to more than half a century and it's good to be able to once again host the WRC after an eight-year hiatus," Mayor of Auckland Phil Goff said.

CEO Michael Goldstein says rally stages north and south of Auckland will be confirmed soon.

"I actually spoke with the WRC last night, and our deadline is end of March to confirm the entire route. Right now, we're working really closely on the details of the route.

"That involves quite a lot of engagement both locally and internationally."
