NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

The Sydney Showground Main Arena (officially known as Spotless Stadium for AFL matches) was redeveloped in 2013 for the Greater Western Sydney Giants AFL club. The upgrade saw seating capacity increase from 13,000 to 24,000 including two new grandstands, upgraded corporate hospitality, bars and function space, large video screen, new media facilities and improved audio and sound systems. The Main Arena surface was also reconfigured to allow a full-sized AFL field.

Sydney Showground (Spotless Stadium)

The Sydney Showground was originally built as Australia's premier Baseball venue and was opened in 1998. It was used as the main Baseball arena during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. In 2001, the Canterbury Bulldogs moved to the Showground to play their NRL home games however it was a short stay, as they moved across the road to ANZ Stadium shortly after. During the famous annual Sydney Royal Eastern Show, the stadium acts as the main arena for the event.

While the venue is officially known as the Sydney Showground Main Arena, it is known as a different name for GWS Giants home games. Following the first naming rights sponsorship agreement, it was was known as Skoda Stadium during the 2012 & 2013 AFL seasons and was briefly known as Giants Stadium when that deal expired before a new five-year agreement was announced in February 2014, with the venue now known as Spotless Stadium for GWS Giants home games.
