Coopers Stadium Events

Holden St, Adelaide, 5007 Australia

Coopers Stadium

Capacity: 26,000

Opened: June 3, 1932

Home Team: Adelaide United Football Club (Football, A-League)

Home to Australia’s most successful football team, the Coopers stadium has hosted Adelaide United for all the three Australian Cup finals the club has won. But hosting the Australian football team through three finals is just one of the stadium’s pinnacle moments.

In the early 2000s, the stadium hosted preliminary matches for the Olympic football games. The stadium also hosted five games in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023. In addition, games from the Rugby League, Rugby Union, and A-League are played here regularly.

Even though Coopers Stadium is mostly known for hosting sports games, it is also designed to host large concerts. This is why when the multipurpose arena is converted into concert mode, its capacity jumps to 26,000.

In December 2023, the Foo Fighters performed with The Chats and Body Type for their Everything or Nothing At All Tour in the Coopers Stadium. The Foo Fighters are regulars in the arena, and other musicians like Ash Grunwald and Fleetwood Mac have also performed on stage in this arena before.

You can always catch an Adelaide United football match in the stadium almost every week. If you are a concert person, you should stay close to TicketX to get updates on concerts in the stadium.

Visitors frequently use the Tram because moving from the city to the stadium is free, and there is a station close to the station. For trains, the Bowden Train Station is also fairly close to the stadium, making it easy to come in from the city and alight there.

Different bus routes also cross the stadium, so the bus is another good option.
