Melbourne Sporting Venues


Melbourne is home to over 29 stadiums with a capacity of over 10,000 people. Some venues, such as the Albert Park Formula 1 track and Calder Raceway have large capacities but only temporary structures, whilst there are many large suburban horse racing tracks and Australian rules ovals. While many large suburban Australian rules venues, such as Waverley Park have been retired as blockbuster games have been moved to the bigger venues, some AFL clubs continue to use them as training and administration bases or used as multi-purpose venues.

The city also has large State Cycling, Hockey, Baseball/Softball and Netball centres and an Ice centre (Australian Olympic Winter Institute) is being constructed in Melbourne Docklands. A new AUD$100 million, 20,000-seat multi-purpose rectangular stadium is currently under construction in Melbourne Park.
