INFO DETAILS SEATING MAP EVENTS

Allianz Stadium (traditionally known as the Sydney Football Stadium) is a rectangular stadium situated next to the Sydney Cricket Ground. The ground is currently closed and is being rebuilt into a brand-new 45,000-seat stadium that'll open in 2022. It hosted its final event in September 2018 and demolition of the existing stadium commenced in early 2019.

The Sydney Football 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 larger Olympic Stadium at Homebush when it opened in 1999.

The stadium plays host to Rugby League, Union, Football and concerts. Capital works back in 2006 increased the capacity of the old stadium from 42,000 to 45,500, of which 44,000 was seated. The majority of seating is located on the two flanks. Two video screens are location within the venue, one at either end. The playing arena measures 140m x 79m.
