Formerly known as York Park and Aurora Stadium, University of Tasmania 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 University of Tasmania Stadium after signing a sponsorship deal with the Tasmania government. The record attendance for the Stadium was 20,971, when the Hawks played Richmond in June 2006.
