AAMI Stadium, formerly known as Football Park, is the home of Australian rules football in South Australia. It is situated at West Lakes, Adelaide. It was built by the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) and is now the home ground of the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Power. Football Park hosted its first event, an SANFL match between Central Districts and North Adelaide, on May 4, 1974.

In addition to Australian rules football, AAMI Stadium has also hosted cricket matches, most famously for the Kerry Packer-run World Series Cricket competition of the late 1970s, and concerts.

Since it was built, Football Park has had many additions including light towers, corporate boxes, a super video screen, the new northern grandstand, and most recently replacing the bench seats with new bucket seating. The stadium is all-seated with a capacity of 51,300, about 6.5% of the population of the entire city of Adelaide. However, the record attendance stands at 66,897 for the 1976 SANFL Grand Final (Sturt v Port Adelaide), when there was standing room terracing in the outer.
