The Liberty Memorial Coliseum in Grand Theft Auto III.

"With the loss of virtually all of our major sports franchises, and the rise in suburban living, Liberty City has become a soccer town."
— GTA III Website.

The Liberty Memorial Coliseum, also known as Bush Stadium in the official GTA III website, is a multipurpose stadium located in Aspatria on Staunton Island, in the Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Stated on its gate in GTA III to be built in 1923 (the same year as real-life New York Yankees stadium), the stadium is assumed to be multifunctional, as in it hosts football and soccer, and appears to have a running track. The stadium is similar in appearance to the L.A. Coliseum, particularly its main entrance. The bleachers of the stadium have the name of the city's football team, the Liberty City Cocks. Presumably, it is also the home field of the Liberty City Beavers, similar to Meadowlands Stadium hosting both the New York Giants and New York Jets. It is most likely based off the Yankee Stadium.

During the events of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the stadium is shown undergoing renovations. It is also advertised as the venue of Crowfest '98.

In Grand Theft Auto Advance, there is a side-mission unlocked after all six races in Staunton Island.



  • If the player is able to reach the stadium in GTA III, the stadium field is textured, but is incorrectly solid, with some unsolid holes to Blue Hell. However in GTA LCS, it's just a huge entrance to Blue Hell, with no field textured.
  • In GTA Advance, the stadium was rectangular-shaped and its left and right side is a parking lot.
  • The stadium is only accessible in GTA Advance.
