Field manual

Formerly known as York Park, Aurora Stadium was first opened in 1921 and has hosted first class Australian Football since 1923. The AFL moved fixtures there in 2001, and 2008 premier Hawthorn has also had home games at the venue.

The ground has also hosted VFL games for many years, although the Tasmanian Devils now play most of their home fixtures at Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

Hawthorn now plays five games a season at Aurora after signing a sponsorship deal with the Tasmania government. The record attendance for Aurora Stadium was 20,971, when the Hawks played Richmond in June 2006.

Getting there

York Park is located to the north of the Launceston City Centre. There is street parking as well areas at the Inveresk Precinct which are also used for parking.
