International Rules at Etihad Stadium
Monday 27 Jun 2011

Etihad Stadium will host the first Test between Australia and Ireland as part of the AFL's 2011 International Rules series on Friday 28 October.

Tickets for the event are now on sale through the Ticketmaster network. Phone 136 100 or visit for further information.

The stadium hosted a Test between the two countries in 2005 in front of more than 45,000 spectators.

Etihad Stadium CEO Ian Collins AM said the venue was a great fit for the International Rules series.

"There was an excellent atmosphere and a healthy crowd when we last played and there is no reason why we shouldn’t see an even bigger attendance this October,” Mr Collins said.

“The International Rules match, played with a round ball, is a fast moving match, and under the roof our stadium always presents a fast track,” he said.

Former Sydney and Western Bulldogs coach Rodney Eade has been appointed as the coach for the Australian side.
