It did not take long for West Aussies to figure out they had something special in Optus Stadium, but it seems the rest of the world has finally caught on.

The 60,000-seat stadium has taken out the top honor at TheStadiumBusiness Awards held in Manchester, named Venue of the Year.

It was competing against the likes of the Footprint Center in Arizona, home of the Phoenix Suns, Capital One Arena in Washington, which hosts the Washington Capitals in the NHL and the Wizards in the NBA, New York Islanders’ home stadium UBS Arena, as well as SC Freiburg’s Europa-Park Stadion in Germany and the Stade Me Abdoulaye Wade soccer stadium in Senegal.

Optus Stadium was judged on its ability to deliver and grow its business through events and attractions, including adding Stadium Karts and rooftop attractions such as the VERTIGO and HALO tours.
