|Coopers Stadium (formerly Hindmarsh Stadium) is a purpose-built football stadium in Adelaide which was completely rebuilt for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. It is the only A-League venue used almost exclusively for soccer. The venue has a capacity of around 16,500 including seating for 15,000.
Coopers Stadium is the home of soccer in South Australia, hosting A-League side Adelaide United, who hold the ground attendance record (since the 2000 Olympics) of 16,558. The stadium is operated by the Adelaide Entertainments Corporation which also operates the neighbouring Adelaide Entertainment Centre. Hindmarsh Stadium, as it was known then, was redeveloped for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games at a cost of $27 million. The main grandstand was upgraded and the three terraces surrounding the ground were replaced with new grandstands. An extra 5,000 temporary seats were used during the Olympic Soccer, increasing the capacity to around 20,000.
South Australian brewer Coopers purchased the naming rights to Hindmarsh Stadium in mid-2013 for five years which resulted in two Adelaide venues having the same name – the other venue being Norwood Oval.
