Wollongong Showground, known as WIN Stadium for sponsorship reasons, is a multi-purpose stadium located in Wollongong, Australia. The stadium was officially opened in 1911. From 1982 until 1998 it played host to every home match for the Illawarra Steelers NRL team, and is still the team’s home ground in the lower grade competitions. It is now used as one home ground of the St George Illawarra Dragons rugby league side and Wollongong Wolves of the National Premier Leagues NSW.
The primary tenants of WIN Stadium are the St George Illawarra Dragons rugby league team, who play four of their twelve home games there (the rest are played at WIN Jubilee Oval, in the St. George area, and ANZ Stadium). The current attendance record for WIN Stadium was set during a NRL finals match, when 19,608 watched the Dragons defeat rivals the Cronulla Sharks.
On game days when St George Illawarra play at the stadium, a shuttle bus service runs between Wollongong Station and the ground. Also, surrounding streets (including sections of Harbour St, Marine Dr and eastern Crown St) are closed to traffic.
