Parramatta Stadium is a multi-purpose outdoor Stadium which was officially opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Phillip on 5 March, 1986. Patrons and hirers acknowledge that the Stadium is the most intimate and enjoyable facility for entertainment and sporting events.

Parramatta Stadium replaced Cumberland Oval in 1986 as the new home for Rugby League in Western Sydney. From the decaying stands of Cumberland Oval, rose Parramatta Stadium, a new landmark in the Parramatta area, replacing the memories of the old oval which was known as the home of Rugby League in the area since the 13 a side sport began there in 1910.

With its predecessor being oval in shape, the new venue was rectangular to support not only Rugby League, but Football and Rugby Union as well.

The famous venue has played host to major international and national sporting contests including rugby league, rugby union, motorcross, football, baseball, boxing and many others.
