The latest addition to the award-winning stadium is a 42-metre-high viewing platform dubbed VERTIGO, opened in early 2022.
The universally accessible platform is designed so everyone can enjoy a unique experience walking beyond the edge of the stadium roof. Our aim was to physically express the pure joy and excitement of seeing your team competing.
Located on the stadium’s western side, the platform extends out five metres beyond the roof. Direct lift access ensures everyone can reach this one-of-a-kind attraction.
Vertigo also features a lean-out experience allowing visitors to see out over the field of play as well as the potential for operator-led activities like abseiling.
