General Information l Facilities l Disabled Access l Parking l Getting There
Bluetongue Stadium has earned a reputation as one of Australia's most picturesque venues and upon viewing the idyllic bayside stadium, it is easy to see why.
The construction of Bluetongue Stadium was completed in February 2000, bringing to Gosford a premier multifunctional facility overlooking the beautiful Brisbane Waters.
With a total capacity of 20,059, Bluetongue Stadium has played host to many major events. These include International Rugby Union, National Rugby League and National A-League Football matches, branching out to boxing, motorcross and open-air rock concerts as well as a multitude of local sporting and community events.
The arrival of the Central Coast Mariners in 2005/06 provides the sports public of the Central Coast with their first exclusively owned and nationally exposed sporting team.
Consequently, the Mariners will become the first team of Australia-wide profile to be permanently based at Bluetongue Stadium.
