This is a huge stadium used for the local Australian rules football team. I was fortunate to be able to walk around during the off season it is really a remarkable stadium

absolutely 5 star arena. was a bit sceptical before renovations as I've enjoyed visiting ground for 20+ plus years. but its improved an already great ground. tickets can be hard to get and geelong rarely plays blockbusters here. but still a great place to watch footy. I come here frequentky for vfl games which allows you better access

The stadium is currently undergoing a $91 million refurbishment and will accommodate up to 36500 once completed in May 2017. Wish to see more sports more often.

Simmonds, in my experience gives the true feeling and passion of the Geelong football club and its supporters. The bars are aplenty and easily accessible. The crowd are friendly and hospitable. Always a good afternoon out for any footy AFL fan.
