Purpose built for the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games, ANZ Stadium was originally created to seat 110,000 making it the largest stadium in Australia and the largest Olympic Stadium in history.

In 2003 the north and south upper stands were removed changing the capacity to a more intimate 83,500.

The number of people who have walked through our turnstiles is now approaching 22 million. That’s the entire population of Australia.

Inseparable from ANZ Stadium history are all the sporting moments that are now part of the history of our nation. You know the ones. They’re ingrained in your memory. View them all again here.
