Liberty Memorial Coliseum
The Liberty Memorial Coliseum in Grand Theft Auto III.
Location: Aspatria, Staunton Island
Use: Stadium

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 GTA III—GTA Vice City Stories rendition of Liberty City.


The official website of GTA III describes the fans that go to the stadium:

Bush Stadium: Where Liberty City Sports fans get off. With the loss of virtually all of our major sports franchises, and the rise in suburban living, Liberty City has become a soccer town. Proud soccer moms are passionate about the Liberty City Cocks, while the men just love the LC Beavers. It is a passionate rivalry which has been known to spill over into violence, including SUV hit and runs and screaming, bitter fights between angry housewives. Go Cocks! Up the Beavers!

According to the plaque above the stadium's entrance, Liberty Memorial Coliseum was built in 1923, the same year as the original Yankee Stadium, and underwent an extensive renovation in 1998, during the events of Liberty City Stories. The stadium is similar in appearance to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, particularly its main entrance. The stadium is assumed to be multifunctional; the stadium hosts football and soccer matches and has a running track, similar to the L.A. Coliseum before its renovations in the early 1990s. The bleachers of the stadium have the name of the city's football team, the Liberty City Cocks. Presumably, it is also the home stadium of the Liberty City Beavers, similar to Giants Stadium, and its later replacement, the New Meadowlands Stadium, hosting both the New York Giants and New York Jets.

The stadium is a drop-off point for "Taxi Driver" in GTA III in which the location is generically named Football 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. The stadium is a destination for "See the Sight Before Your Flight."



  • If a player is able to reach the stadium in GTA III, the stadium field is textured, but is incorrectly solid, with some unsolid holes. However in GTA Liberty City Stories, its just a huge entrance to Blue Hell, with no field textured.
