NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

Hisense Arena at Melbourne Park was completed in 2000 and offers unparalleled flexibility for events and functions. This incredibly versatile venue boasts an ICU internationally accredited 250 metre cycling track, a Plexicushion tennis court used predominantly for the Australian Open Grand Slam Tennis Championship, concert quality acoustics, and innovative seating design that ensures spectators are close to the action at all times.

Hisense Arena

During construction (and during the 2006 Commonwealth Games) the arena was simply known as Multi Purpose Venue and it opened as Vodafone Arena before Hisense took over the naming rights. As well as Tennis and Cycling, Hisense Arena plays host to Netball with the Melbourne Vixens playing the majority of their home games at the venue as well as Basketball with the Melbourne Tigers playing some games there. Former teams South Dragons, Victoria Giants & Victoria Titans had all previously played at the venue. Hisense Arena caters for all tastes, with 10 food and beverage outlets and 4 merchandise outlets within its expansive public space. The total area of Hisense Arena is 13,100 square metres, with a floor space of 2,760 square metres.

Hisense Arena

Overseen by the Victorian Government Office of Major Projects, the arena was designed by Peddle Thorp Architects and Planners and built by Theiss Constructions. The cycling track was designed by world-renowned track builder Ron Webb, an Australian and one of only two such experts in the world.

Hisense Arena

Revolutionary in its design, Hisense Arena can be readily changed for almost any event - from ice skating to opera, from cycling to basketball. As well as retractable seating, the state-of-the-art venue also has a retractable roof which can open or close in less than 10 minutes. Hisense Arena has fixed seating for 4,500, while raiseable, retractable and removable seating can enable a maximum capacity of 10,500 for Basketball, Tennis and concerts, while Cycling can cater for 4,500 fans.
