NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

Etihad Stadium is a 55,000-seat multi-purpose venue located in Melbourne's Docklands precinct, playing host to a variety of events including Australian Football, Rugby League/Union, Football, Cricket and concerts.

Etihad Stadium

 
Etihad Stadium features a retractable roof ensuring perfect conditions at all times. It opens and closes in less than 20 minutes and even with the roof open, 98 percent of patrons are sitting behind the drip line of the roof. When the roof is closed, the ceiling height to the underside of the support structure is 24 metres (78 feet) and to underside of the fixed structure is 35 metres.

The stadium can be re-configured to suit many sports and entertainment events. Moveable lower tiers can be configured into a rectangle or oval to suit a variety of field sports and stage events. This seating can move up to 18 metres forward which is ideal for rectangular sports, although this isn't used often.

The Docklands venue has now had three naming rights sponsors since it opened in 2000. It was initially known as Colonial Stadium before changing to Telstra Dome in October 2002. As of March 2009, it became Etihad Stadium following a naming rights deal with the national airline of the UAE.
