Mayor Len Brown says Auck­land has earned its spot in the top 10. ‘‘Auck­land has a non­stop sum­mer lined up with global events like the Bar­foot & Thomp­son World Triathlon Auck­land, and as a host city for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. With the Fifa U-20 World Cup 2015 also com­ing up in June next year, we are set to en­joy a bumper 2015.’’
