About Us

Welcome to Hawaii’s Gathering Place! Located in Central Oahu, the Aloha Stadium is Hawaii’s largest outdoor arena and home to the University of Hawaii Warriors football team. In addition, the Aloha Stadium hosts a multitude of events attracting visitors from around the world including professional sporting events, concerts, car shows, fairs and the ever popular Aloha Stadium Swap Meet & Marketplace.  There is no greater place than the Aloha Stadium!

Our mission is to meet the challenge of providing a first class arena where the dreams of our young people can be realized through participation in sporting and other special events; where the spirit of achievement can be nourished by the thrill of competition; where families can gather to share their cultural diversity with pride and a feeling of Aloha.
