Allianz Stadium - Waratahs Super Rugby Stadium


Allianz Stadium was established in 1988 to symbolize the "Rectangular Stadium" in Sydney, Australia. It was previously known as Sydney Football Stadium, or SFS. The venue hosted the Rugby League, Football Association, and Rugby Union. Before it was built, major events were mostly held at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), which was an oval field and not suitable for sports.

The Sydney Football Stadium (SFS) was built in Moore Park, nearby Sydney Cricket ground (SCG), on the site of the former Sydney Sports ground and is managed by the SCG Trust. The venue's total seating capacity is 41,159, while in the 1993 FIFA World Cup qualifier Australia VS Argentina, the stadium's official sports event attendance was 43,967 people.

The Sydney Football Stadium signed a 5-year contract with Aussie Home Loans and changed the name of Aussie Stadium in 2002. Due to sponsorship reasons, the stadium is known as the Alliance Stadium (since 2012).

Allianz Stadium is a home ground of many professional teams.
Sydney Roosters NRL rugby league
 New South Wales Waratahs Super rugby union
 Sydney FC A-League football (soccer)

Usually, the Aussie Stadium hosts the National Rugby League (NRL) both semifinals and a preliminary final, and the yearly Charity Shield Rugby League game between South Sydney and St. George Illawarra was also played for several years.
