Allianz Stadium, previously known as the Sydney Football Stadium, is situated right next to the Sydney Cricket Ground and hosts Rugby League, Rugby Union and football (soccer) matches, as well as some of Australia’s biggest concerts.
The stadium, which is Sydney’s premiere rectangular field venue, first opened in 1988 and has a capacity of 45,500. The Sydney Roosters, NSW Waratahs and Sydney FC are the stadium’s major tenants, but the Wallabies and the Socceroos also occasionally play here.
Events held at the Sydney Football Stadium include the National Rugby League (NRL) semi-finals and one preliminary final, as well as all New South Wales Rugby League and Australian Rugby League Grand Finals. Other big events include the Football World Cup Qualifiers and the NRL Grand Finals, as well as International Rugby Union fixtures.
