Etihad Stadium has everything you want: close-to-the-action seats, comfort and convenience, quality food and beverage choices, high-tech sound and lighting and an electric atmosphere. An array of innovations places Etihad Stadium among the most technologically advanced sports and entertainment venues in the world. The show will always go on at Etihad Stadium, with its retractable roof that opens and closes in less than 20 minutes. Even with the roof open, 98 percent of patrons are sitting behind the drip line of the roof. When the roof is closed, the ceiling height to the underside of the support structure is 24 metres (78 feet) and to underside of the fixed structure is 35 metres.
Etihad Stadium can be re-configured to suit many sports and entertainment events. Moveable lower tiers can be configured into a rectangle or oval to suit a variety of field sports and stage events. This seating can move up to 18 metres forward.
