NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

AAMI Stadium (previously known as Football Park) is the former home of Australian Football in South Australia. The venue played host to its last AFL game on 31st August 2013 and its last SANFL Grand Final on 6th October. The Adelaide Crows, Port Adelaide and the SANFL have moved to the newly redeveloped Adelaide Oval and it's expected AAMI Stadium will no longer host any major events.

The formal announcement of the building of Football Park was made on December 20, 1971 and the first match played on May 4, 1974 between Central District and North Adelaide. Football Park is the home of Australian Football in South Australia with both Adelaide AFL teams using the stadium as their home grounds. Since it was built, Football Park has had many additions including light towers, corporate boxes, a super video screen, the new northern grandstand, and most recently replacing the bench seats with new bucket seating. The current capacity is 51,515.

The 7,000-seat Northern Grandstand was completed in 2001 at a cost of $12.5 million. The stand was built as an extension of the current members stand, but bigger, and extends around to the large video screen. Under a sponsorship arrangement with major Australian insurer AAMI, the company now has naming rights to the stadium, which from July 13 2002 is known as AAMI Stadium.

Similar to Melbourne's Waverley Park, it's expected that the majority of Football Park will be demolished, with some facilities including the oval retained as a community venue and as the training base of the Adelaide Crows. Formal plans haven't been released as yet.
