Hyman Memorial Stadium in GTA Vice City.

The Hyman Memorial Stadium is a sports arena featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, located in Downtown Vice City.


Stated to have been completed in 1979, the stadium is possibly named as a reference to the hymen (implying a loss of virginity), or, more likely, to Hyman Roth, a Miami-based character in The Godfather Part II. The stadium is surrounded by a thin stretch of parking spaces and access roads, and also boasts a pair of helipads, one of which spawns a Maverick in GTA Vice City Stories.


The stadium is known to host a variety of events throughout its appearances.

In GTA Vice City, the stadium's interior is depicted with a multipurpose arrangement, featuring an oval track on the outskirts surrounding a central arena. The oval track is used for Hotring - a NASCAR-style racing event, while the arena is adopted for used in Bloodring - a demolition derby event, and Dirtring - a dirt bike stunt show. The events are rotated every day (Hotring → Bloodring → Dirtring), and are only available to the player between 8:00 pm (20:00 hour) and 12:00 midnight (00:00 hour).

In GTA Vice City Stories, the stadium is adopted for use as a concert venue for Phil Collins, as seen in "Kill Phil: Part 2" and "In the Air Tonight". The stadium is also part of the Hyman Memorial O.D.T. side-mission, with the final third of the race starting around the stadium and finishing at the entrance. The Vice City Mambas football team play here. It is possible that a professional baseball plays here, because in real life, the Florida Marlins play in the same stadium as the Miami Dolphins.


In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the following songs can be heard playing in the background during any of the events inside the stadium:

  • Frankie Goes to Hollywood - "Two Tribes" (featured on Wave 103)
  • Tesla - "Cumin' Atcha Live" (featured on V-Rock)
  • Gary Numan - "Cars" (featured on Wave 103)
  • Alcatrazz - "God Blessed Video" (featured on V-Rock)

  • It was possibly named after Hyman Roth from The Godfather part II since Hyman Roth lives in Miami and Vice City Is based on Miami.
  • There is a glitch in Grand Theft Auto:Vice City Stories that makes it possible to enter the stadium to watch Phil Collins' concert. To do this you must use a Little Willie to enter the roof because it is not solid. Then exit the vehicle to land in the Blue Hell. Then you will find yourself in the stadium. The only way out is to kill yourself.
