Coopers Stadium

Coopers Stadium (formerly Hindmarsh Stadium) is a purpose-built football stadium in Adelaide, with a capacity of 16,500 including seating for 15,000. The 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, received a major redevelopment for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games at a cost of $27 million, with the main grandstand upgraded and the three terraces surrounding the ground replaced with new grandstands. An extra 5,000 temporary seats were used during the Olympic Soccer, increasing the capacity to around 20,000.

Hindmarsh was upgraded in 2022 in preparation for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, including a new roof on the Eastern grandstand, improved corporate and media facilities, two new video screens, LED lighting, improved player facilities, entry gates and other match day facilities.

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.
