The Aviva Stadium reopened its doors on 14th May 2010 and has a seated capacity of 51,700.
The original multi discipline ground was in existence at the Lansdowne Road site since 1872. In its old incarnation, prior to closure in December 2006, it was the oldest rugby union ground worldwide & oldest sports stadium in Europe.
The stadium is the home to the Irish national rugby and Republic of Ireland national football team. Aviva Stadium is now Ireland’s only UEFA Category 4/Elite Stadium and has won a number of awards including RIAI & RIBA. Since opening in May 2010 over 1.8 million ticketed visitors have passed through the turnstiles for rugby, soccer & concerts.
The South, East and West stands have four tiers of seating for spectators. The bottom and top tiers provide the main volume of spectating facilities. The second tier provides facilities for premium ticket holders and the third tier provides facilities for corporate boxes.
