NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

Allianz Stadium (previously known as the Sydney Football Stadium) is situated right next to the Sydney Cricket Ground and plays host to Rugby League, Union, Football and concerts. Following recent capital works, the capacity has been increased from 42,000 to 45,500, of which 44,000 is seated with the majority of seating location on the two flanks. Two video screens are location within the venue, one at either end. The playing arena measures 140m x 79m.

The stadium opened in 1988 to much acclaim for its wave-like structure. However the roof can cause issues when it rains with it not covering the majority of seating on level 1. From its opening, the stadium was the home of Rugby League, however Grand Final's were transferred to the much larger Olympic Stadium at Homebush when it opened in 1999.

Allianz Stadium

The stadium played host to Football during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Other big events held at the stadium include Football World Cup Qualifiers, NRL Grand Finals and International Rugby Union fixtures. The record crowd for a sporting event is 43,967 for the Australia v Argentina World Cup Qualifier in 1993, while the largest Rugby League crowd is 42,482 for the 1997 ARL Grand Final between Manly & Newcastle. The largest concert crowd is 52,838 for Robbie Williams in 2006.

Allianz Stadium

Allianz Australia signed a 10-year naming rights agreement with the Sydney Football Stadium in February 2012. The venue had one other name when Aussie Home Loans held the rights between early-2002 and mid-2007 with the venue known as Aussie Stadium.
