Allianz Stadium, or as it might be known as Sydney Football Stadium, is the go-to stadium in Sydney for professionals rugby league, rugby union and soccer matches. The venue plays home to the Sydney Roosters (NRL), NSW Waratahs and Sydney FC (A-League) while the Wallabies (Union), Kangaroos (League) and the Socceroos all play at the ground at different stages throughout the year. The NRL semi finals and preliminary finals are also played at the venue as well as the Charity Shield match between South Sydney and St George Illawarra is played annually. The biggest accolade the ground has to this date is it hosted the first very NRL grand final under the new NRL banner.
Not only does the stadium play host to a plethora of sporting events across every month of the year, it has also been the stage for some massive concerts featuring big name stars. These range from U2 in 1993 and Pearl Jam in 2009, to Eminem in 2011 and Coldplay in 2012 and 2016.
In terms of transport, the ground is incredibly easy to access via public transport or via car (although, I wouldn’t recommend it because driving around Sydney isn’t exactly something anyone wants to do…). The closest train station to the ground is Central Station which is 3km away and there is an event on, shuttle buses run between the station and the closest street to the stadium.
