Marvel Stadium Upgrade

We are proud to partner with the AFL to deliver a revitalised Marvel Stadium and Docklands precinct, creating a landmark 365-day-a-year sport and entertainment hub for Melbourne.

The new Marvel Stadium will take the fan experience to the next level and create hundreds of jobs. The stadium will remain operational throughout the works, ensuring the continued employment of 1,500 staff and the arrival of thousands of visitors to Docklands to help the precinct recover from the impacts of the global pandemic.

The vision is to make the Marvel Stadium precinct one of the best and technologically advanced sports and entertainment destinations in the world.   

The state-of-the-art stadium will improve the overall fan experience with revitalised eastern and southern entry points, a new “Town Square” – an all-weather open area available 7 days a week, new function rooms with views of the area and Melbourne CBD, major renovations to food and beverage areas, accessibility upgrades, new change rooms for athletes and improved lighting, technology and video scoreboards.

The new stadium will guarantee the AFL Grand Final will be played at the MCG until 2059. This secures the future of AFL and boosts regional activity, ensuring AFL matches will be played in regional Victoria, and it guarantees access for other sporting codes and events to be held at Marvel Stadium.
