Parramatta Stadium is a sports stadium situated in Parramatta, New South Wales, Australia.

The stadium is used primarily as the home ground of Australian National Rugby League (NRL) club the Parramatta Eels. The ground's eastern grandstand is named the Mick Cronin Stand and the western grandstand, the Ken Thornett Stand in honour of two of the club's leading former players.

It has also hosted numerous other sporting and cultural events since its opening in 1986.

The King of Pop Michael Jackson performed, on two consecutive nights, at the stadium during his Bad World Tour on 20 21 November 1987 for a total of 90,000 people (45,000 per concert).

Paul McCartney concluded the Australian leg of The New World Tour, with two consecutive shows at the stadium, on 22 23 March 1993.
