NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

Simonds Stadium (Kardinia Park) is the home of football in Geelong and is one of the largest regional stadiums in Australia. Following the recent completion of the new Players Stand, the venue now has a capacity of over 34,000. Also completed in the recent redevelopment was a new video screen and four new light towers with the first AFL game under lights played on June 1 with Geelong defeating the Gold Coast Suns.

The stadium features six grandstands and the Gary Ablett Terrace. The new Players Stand has seating for 9,340. Built prior to that was the Premiership Stand (4,714 seats) and the Reg Hickey Stand on the outer wing which seats 6,098. There are further plans to develop the other side of the ground, making it an all-seater state-of-the-art venue.

Kardinia Park has had a number of names over the years following naming rights agreements including Shell Stadium, Baytec Stadium, Skilled Stadium and its current name, Simonds Stadium. As well as AFL, the venue has also played host to domestic cricket, pre-season rugby league, rugby union and soccer matches.
