Since the inception of the A-League, Australian soccer's highest level annual league tournament, 29 football stadiums have been used to host matches, with two more stadiums set to host their first A-League matches in the 2016–17 season. The inaugural round of A-League matches took place on 26 and 28 August 2005, with four clubs hosting the opening fixtures.

Western Sydney Wanderers' ANZ Stadium will become the latest to hold its first A-League match when the Wanderers play against Sydney FC on 8 August 2016. It is the largest stadium in the league, whilst Adelaide United's Coopers Stadium is the smallest.
