The Hangar

The Hangar

The Hangar is the High Performance Centre of the Essendon Football Club and is located near the Melbourne Airport at Tullamarine. The venue opened in 2013 and became the new training and administration base of the Essendon Football Club, after relocating from their traditional base, Windy Hill.

Formerly known as the True Value Solar Centre, the $27 million facility features two ovals - one the size of the MCG and the other the size of Marvel Stadium, indoor training facilities and offices. The main oval has an estimated capacity of 2,000, although games are currently not played on the ground. The smaller oval has lighting suitable for night matches.

The Hangar is also used as the Victorian headquarters of the Australian Paralympic Committee, while the club has revealed plans to perform an $18 million facility upgrade.
