Central Coast Stadium

Located in Gosford NSW, Central Coast Stadium is one of Australia's most picturesque stadiums. Opened in 2000, the stadium sits on the site of the former Grahame Park. The 20,000-seat venue features two identical main grandstands on either side featuring two levels of seating and corporate facilities, seating at one end and no spectator facilities at the other than the scoreboard and palm trees to open up the view to the water.

Central Coast Stadium was built to host the merged NRL club Northern Eagles who played half their home games at the stadium with the other half at Brookvale Oval, until mid-2002 when due to poor crowds in Gosford, all home games were played at Brookvale. The club later reverted back to the Manly Sea Eagles name, leaving Central Coast Stadium without an anchor tenant.

Central Coast Stadium

Central Coast Stadium is home of foundation A-League club, Central Coast Mariners, and also hosts occasional season and trial matches for the NRL and Super Rugby. The stadium hosted several games for the 2003 Rugby World Cup held in Australia. Although currently known as its non-commercial name, the stadium has had three naming-rights sponsors since its opening in 2000 - North Power Stadium, Express Advocate Stadium, and most recently, Bluetongue Stadium. Recent improvements to the venue include a new large video screen and upgraded changeroom facilities for players.
