-

Nothing beats watching football live. The atmosphere, the passion, it is why we love the sport. This year’s A-League season is no different, with the entertainment on offer enticing more fans to join in on the fun.

There are plenty of top-quality stadiums across the country to see your team in action, but there is no doubt some are better than others.

We have ranked the top five stadiums to watch this season’s action, based on the stadium’s quality, match day experience and how each team are performing at home this campaign.

Find out if your team’s stadium has made the cut.

5. Moreton Daily Stadium (Brisbane Roar)

The Roar have made the move 40 minutes north of Brisbane this season and are reaping the rewards.

There is a huge difference in having 8000 fans packed into the boutique stadium at Redcliffe instead of watching at an empty Suncorp Stadium.

Whilst serious upgrades are needed to improve the stadium’s broadcast and corporate facilities, the Roar have given their fans every reason to make the trek.

Despite not winning in Redcliffe since their 5-2 demolition of Melbourne Victory, there is still an electric game-day atmosphere making Moreton Daily Stadium the place to be for Brisbane football fans.

  1. Bankwest Stadium (Western Sydney Wanderers)

The best A-League stadium in terms of facilities and structure by far.

The newly revamped venue holds 30,000 fans in steep grandstands, creating a fantastic atmosphere in Wanderland.

The Wanderers have only managed one win in five games at Bankwest so far this season and not utilised their home ground as well as they could.

While the side is on still track to make their first finals appearance since the 2016/17 A-League season, they will need to win more games at home in the back end of their campaign.

  1. Coopers Stadium (Adelaide United)

While the Wanderers have struggled to secure wins at home this season, the same can not be said about Adelaide United at Coopers Stadium.

In five games at home so far this season, the Reds have secured four wins and scored nine goals, only losing to Perth Glory 2-1.

Hindmarsh is the fortress every A-League club envys this campaign, with United boasting the best record at home compared to the rest of the competition.

The abundance of crowd support, plus the Reds’ success this season makes for one of the best match day experiences in the league.

  1. Campbelltown Stadium (Macarthur FC)

The cowbells, enough said right?

Whilst not the greatest A-League stadium on this list, the introduction of the cowbells in Macarthur’s inaugural season has made Campbelltown Stadium the place to be.

Love them or hate them, they create a fantastic home atmosphere and will build a tradition Bulls fans can uphold for years to come.

Macarthur have an ordinary record at home so far this season, with only a win at Campbelltown against the Reds.

Despite only taking two points from their other four games at home, the experience and atmosphere on match day has been a highlight of the A-League this season.

  1. Central Coast Stadium (Central Coast Mariners)

What is not to love about this iconic stadium? The open end, the palm trees, the ocean view and gigantic sauce bottles, what more could you ask for?

With the Mariners on top of the A-League ladder, their fans are loving life on the Central Coast which makes for a great game-day experience.

The league leaders are loving playing at Central Coast Stadium, sitting second behind Adelaide for most wins at home this season.

Not only do Mariners fans have plenty to cheer about this season, but they also get to watch football in one of the most picturesque stadiums in Australian football.
