Today those stadiums in Sydney are used to host a range of sporting fixtures such as cricket, rugby league, rugby union, football (soccer), and Australian Rules Football.

Stadiums Sydney – Sydney Cricket Grounds
The Sydney Cricket Grounds, despite its name, is a multi-sporting complex. It hosts all types of cricket – Test, One Day, Twenty20 as well as domestic games. The other sports played here are Australian Rules Football and both codes of rugby.
Currently the stadium is the home ground for both the Sydney Swans AFL team and the NSW Blues Cricket team. It has a seating capacity of 48,000 and is the 8th largest sporting venue by capacity in Australia.
Stadiums Sydney – Stadium Australia
Stadium Australia is the main stadium in the Sydney Olympic Park complex, built to host the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Commercially the venue has had several names; currently it’s ANZ Stadium and previously it was Telstra Stadium. It’s a multi-sporting complex that hosts both codes of rugby, AFL, football (soccer) and cricket.
It originally could seat over 110,000 people, making it the biggest stadium by capacity in the country but expansions to the playing surface in 2003 to accommodate more sports reduced that capacity to 83,500. Even so, it’s still the second biggest. And the only stadium in the world designed to play 5 sports.
Stadium Australia is currently home to a number of teams including the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the NSW State Rugby team.
