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.

Seating Map explodedThere are 10,000 seats at premium level and a further 1,300 at box level. The North stand comprises one low level seating tier, to reflect its proximity to the residential properties at that end of the ground. There is continuous access around the three sides to all facilities at premium and box levels.
