Sydney SuperDome is the largest indoor entertainment and sporting arena in Australia, accommodating up to 16,000 visitors.
Sydney SuperDome is ranked as the number 4 arena in the World, only behind Madison Square Garden in New York City, The O2 in London and The Forum in Los Angeles; and is ranked number 1 for the highest record selling venue in Australia.
Originally built for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, Sydney SuperDome has now established itself as one of Australia’s major concert venues. This colossal arena has played host to a number of international superstars including Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift, Madonna, Stevie Wonder, P!NK, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Metallica and Kendrick Lamar.
Other events include family shows including Disney On Ice, The Wiggles and indoor sport, including tennis, NBA and local NBL, netball and motocross.
Sydney SuperDome is proudly managed by ASM Global, the world’s leading venue management and services company, and will host both group phase games and finals for the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022.
Opened in 1984, Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre became Sydney’s number one venue for regional, national and international sport and an almost unlimited variety of entertainment, corporate, community and leisure activities.
The Sports Centre’s flexibility is legendary, historically hosting Cold Chisel and Wiggles concerts, a State election tally-room, indoor equestrian championships, world boxing and wrestling championships, Gay Games, Masters Games, World Badminton Championships, robotics competitions, plus the Steelers, Kings, Flames, Razorbacks and Opals competitions.
At the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, the Sports Centre was the venue for table tennis and taekwondo.
The venue’s flexible and creative management of the 2018 Invictus Games saw it win the prestigious Australia’s Best Venue Management Award.
A promoter of women’s sport, the venue has been home to the NSW Swifts and NSW Giants netball teams. It houses NSW’s premier artistic gymnastics training venue, and the NSW Hall of Champions, a sporting hall of fame.
With state-of-the-art FIBA approved upgrades to backboards, video technology, seating, flooring, lighting and change rooms, the Sports Centre will continue to be a world-class destination for sporting events.
