Belmore Sports Ground.

I first went when I was 18 and in my first year of uni. It was awesome to finally enter the ground I'd only seen on TV growing up.

I haven't been os, so my comments are somewhat limited, but do believe you need to consider context when thinking about the stadium, as a shit contest can spoil the best stadium experience.
So with my (very) limited experience, its a toss up between Suncorp (SOO) & MCG (Ashes test).
If I had to chose raw emotion it would be Lang Park (circa 1986) Brisbane vs Manly in the AMACO (Panasonic) Cup or a SOO sometime in the early 80's (can't remember exactly when)

When i was in Brazillian i went to Maracaña stadium in Rio to watch Vasco V Flamenco, the greatest rivalry in brazillian football. It was fucking insane.
I went with a tour group from my hostel as it would have been too dangerous alone. Apparently the crowds can get completely out of control and riot, with people even being killed. Mental.
Anyway, we go to the game and there is riot police everywhere, armoured vehicles with water canons patrolling the streets, and a shitload of crazy fans. We finally found the way to our seats, and ordered some 0.2% alc/vol beer, which is all they allow inside the stadium.
Before the game started, it started pissing down rain, while lightning cracked in the distance.
From our seats we could see the Christ redeamer statue in the distance, with lightning lighting ip the sky around it. It was raining so hard that when the ball was kicked, it landed and stopped dead.
The atmosohere was insane!! The fans were separated, and they were playing massive drums and letting off flares everywhere. I have never seen anything like it.
I have also been to ANZ, the sydney showground, and the SFS. Hahaha

Not a big sports fan, apart from the Dogs and Carlton.

Did attend an England-Ireland soccer match at the old Wembley stadium in 1974. Lucky to get out alive when the housebricks and darts started raining down on us. The charge into the crowd by the mounted police, when we were trying to leave the ground, was pretty frightening.
That was enough for me.
