Marvel Stadium

Docklands Stadium, also known by naming rights sponsorship as Marvel Stadium, is a multi-purpose sports and entertainment stadium in the Docklands area of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Construction started in October 1997, and was completed in 2000 at a cost of A$460 million. The stadium features a retractable roof, and the ground level seating can be converted from oval to rectangular configuration.
The stadium is primarily used for Australian rules football, and was originally built as a replacement for Waverley Park. Offices at the precinct serve as the headquarters of the Australian Football League which, since 7 October 2016, has had exclusive ownership of the venue. With a capacity for 56,000 spectators for sports, the stadium is the second-largest in Melbourne, and hosts a number of other sporting events, including domestic Twenty20 cricket matches, Melbourne Victory soccer home matches, rugby league and rugby union matches, as well as special events and concerts. Seven Network's digital broadcast centre is also headquartered at the precinct.
