AFL research shows Spotless Stadium delivers the best venue experience

AFL research shows Spotless Stadium delivers the best venue experience
December 22, 2015

Research released by the AFL on match day and customer experience reveals Spotless Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park as having been Australia’s top footy venue during 2015, ranking first in 19 of 43 categories.

Drawn from survey results from GWS Giants’ club members and casual ticket purchasers, Spotless Stadium’s overall satisfaction score was 8.3 / 10, ranking it first of 10 stadiums across Australia.

Peter Thorpe, General Manager of Sydney Showground, home of Spotless Stadium, said he was delighted with the results, which stamped the rise of one of Australia’s newest stadium venues. 

Thorpe explained “our team at Sydney Showground work around the clock to deliver a world-class experience for all customers, so we’re ecstatic to be recognised by the AFL for this wonderful achievement.

“We believe we’ve been successful because we’re proactive to consumer demand, reflected by our 2015 introduction of the Snack Shack, an outlet providing consumers with a range of quality food and drink options for a maximum of $3. 

“Spotless Stadium caters for major sporting events, concerts, festivals and corporate entertainment, and we will continue to provide this award winning service to not just GWS and AFL visitors, but all our customers throughout the year,” he said.

Key areas Spotless Stadium excelled in included quality and value of food, beverage, pricing, activities and entertainment for children as well as the ease of leaving the stadium precinct. 

GWS Giants Chief Executive, David Matthews, added "our home at Sydney Olympic Park delivers terrific family entertainment, and this research confirms that Spotless Stadium is one of the best stadiums in the country.

“We’re in the most competitive sports market in Australia and creating a memorable match day experience is important to everyone at the GIANTS. 

“2015 saw the GIANTS have their best season yet on the field with 11 wins, as well as setting a new membership record and an increase of 17% in home crowds.

“With a really strong fixture for our fans at Spotless Stadium in 2016, it’s never been a better time to join the GIANTS as a member as we continue to push towards the finals." 

Spotless Stadium is the home of the AFL’s GWS Giants and the BBL’s Sydney Thunder.
