NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

Aurora Stadium, formally York Park, is the major Australian Rules Football ground located in Launceston, Tasmania. The ground has been redeveloped a number of times with the first major revamp in 2000 to bring it up to AFL standards. This included the EE Gunns Stand - a two level grandstand also with corporate facilties, as well as TV standard lighting.

The Hawthorn Football Club was the first AFL club to call Aurora Stadium its part-time home ground, with St.Kilda following in the Hawks footsteps later on. The ground hosted its first AFL fixture in 2003 - during this time, the ground had four grandstands on the main wing plus a social club building as well as a temporary grandstand on the outer wing, with a total capacity of around 15,000.

 

 

The next redevelopment in 2002 included the constuction of terrace seating behind each of the goals and on the outer wing. Yet another redevelopment took place over the following summer which included constructing a roof over the seating in the outer three sides, this was completed in September 2003, just in time for the Rugby World Cup.

Aurora Stadium is currently undergoing another redevelopment again improving the facilities with the EE Gunn stand being extended on both sides. Once complete, the stadium will have a capacity of 23,000 including 12,200 seats and a corporate capacity of 900.
