Vote for Australia’s best stadium seating pattern
As the reality of life with coronavirus hits home, empty stadiums have become the norm and stadium seats will be on show to millions of fans – but which stadium has the best? Here’s your chance to vote.
It’s the inaugural and ever-so-prestigious Austadiums Seat Awards!
Last year, the season-opener attracted 85,016 fans to the MCG and a similar attendance was expected again to kick-off the 2020 season, but instead only a handful of officials will be inside the 100,000-capacity Melbourne Cricket Ground.
The seating pattern of a stadium is a talking point for some, but they’ll now be forced upon viewers for the foreseeable future. There are a few distinct styles, and some can destroy the look of a classy stadium.
Scroll down to cast your vote in this all-important discussion! Voting closes seven days from now – Thursday 26 March at 5pm AEDT.
Below are 10 hand-picked by the Austadiums team, but you can vote on any sports stadium located within Australia – search stadiums on our website and enter the name under ‘other’.
