Allianz Stadium (previously known as the Sydney Football Stadium) is situated right next to the Sydney Cricket Ground and plays host to Rugby League, Union, Football and concerts.
Following recent capital works, the capacity has been increased from 42,000 to 45,500, of which 44,000 is seated with the majority of seating location on the two flanks.
Two video screens are location within the venue, one at either end. The playing arena measures 140m x 79m.
Allianz Australia signed a 10-year naming rights agreement with the Sydney Football Stadium in February 2012. The venue had one other name when Aussie Home Loans held the rights between early-2002 and mid-2007 with the venue known as Aussie Stadium.
Allianz Stadium closes on October 5, 2018 for three years for reconstruction.
A futuristic stadium
The Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust is excited to take the first steps forward in a comprehensive action plan for the rebuild of the Sydney Football Stadium (SFS).
The NSW Government is redeveloping the SFS into a modern, world-class venue, to ensure Sydney has a sporting and entertainment precinct of international standard and that NSW remains the number one choice for sporting and entertainment events in Australia.
The project will build on the legacy of the Sydney Sports Ground (1899) and the original SFS, opened as a Bicentennial Project in 1988.
The SFS is now the oldest top-tier rectangular stadium in Australia, with significant safety,
compliance and patron safety issues, together with insufficient female toilets and inadequate provision for disability access.
To address these issues, the NSW Government will rebuild the venue into a 40,000 to 45,000 seat rectangular stadium with substantially improved sightlines, a roof that covers all patrons, with vastly improved amenities, food and beverage options and accessibility.
Work is expected to commence in late 2018 and be completed by early 2022. Infrastructure NSW has commenced its public consultation and you can visit the project website to find out more: https://yoursay.sfsredevelopment.insw.com
