UTAS Stadium

University of Tasmania Stadium, formerly known as York Park, is a major Australian Rules Football and Cricket ground located in Launceston, Tasmania. The venue has a capacity of almost 20,000 and has been redeveloped several times with the first major revamp in 2000 to bring it up to AFL standards. This included the EE Gunns Stand - a two level grandstand also with corporate facilities, as well as TV standard lighting.

The Hawthorn Football Club was the first AFL club to call Aurora Stadium its part-time home ground, with St.Kilda following in the Hawks footsteps later on. The ground hosted its first AFL fixture in 2003 - during this time, the ground had four grandstands on the main wing plus a social club building as well as a temporary grandstand on the outer wing, with a total capacity of around 15,000.

The next redevelopment in 2002 included the construction of terrace seating behind each of the goals and on the outer wing. Yet another redevelopment took place over the following summer which included constructing a roof over the seating in the outer three sides, this was completed in September 2003, just in time for the Rugby World Cup. Most recently, the EE Gunn stand was extended on both sides to further increase the seating capacity.
