Etihad Stadium on a windy day

Etihad Stadium, formerly Colonial Stadium and Telstra Dome, is set in the redeveloped Docklands precinct immediately adjacent to Melbourne's CBD. The integrated urban stadium development has been designed with event flexibility as a key component. One of the main design features is the translucent saddle-shaped stadium roof which is supported by the seating structure and two 295m long trusses, enhancing the intense atmosphere, optimising stadium acoustics.

Etihad Stadium is a multipurpose venue which hosts as many as 85 sports and entertainment events per year. Our major hirer is the AFL which on average schedules 50-55 matches per year including NAB Cup pre-season games and the occasional final.
Furthermore, the stadium hosts domestic and international soccer events, rugby matches (Union and League) as well as concerts and entertainment events with the ability to have 60,000 plus patrons.

Etihad Stadium was designed by a Populous joint venture, Bligh Lobb Sports Architecture and Daryl Jackson Pty Ltd.
