Olympic Park Stadium was a former athletics venue located within the Melbourne's sports precinct. Following the opening of AAMI Park in 2010, the venue was demolished in 2012 to make way for Olympic Park Oval which opened in early 2013 and is the training ground for Collingwood FC.
Olympic Park was originally built as a warm-up track for the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games and as well as being Melbourne's main athletics venue, it also hosted Football and Rugby League. The stadium had a capacity of 18,500 including seating for 11,000.
Olympic Park Stadium was Melbourne's primary rectangular sports stadium for many years, until the new state-of-the-art Melbourne Rectangular Stadium (AAMI Park) opened next door in 2010 where the Edwin Flack Field once was. Melbourne Victory Football Club (A-League) and the Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club (NRL) both called the stadium home and have since moved to the new stadium. Athletics has sinced moved to Lakeside Stadium at Albert Park which was redeveloped.
Football (Soccer) has been a big part of Olympic Park Stadium. As well as being the original home of the Melbourne Victory, the stadium hosted many internationals, domestic games including NSL Grand Finals and was home to many clubs including Carlton and the Melbourne Knights.
When the Olympic Park precinct was originally constructed in 1956, it also consisted of a Velodrome and a second sports ground. Later, a second stadium 'Olympic Park No.2' was constructed. The venue played host to greyhound racing and soccer before it was demolished in the late 1990's to make way for the CityLink road tunnels.
