Melbourne’s premier sports and entertainment venue – Marvel Stadium, is managed and operated by Melbourne Stadiums Limited (MSL).
Marvel Stadium currently serves as the busiest multi-purpose stadium in the world, welcoming over two million patrons through its turnstiles each year – hosting over 70 arena events, roughly 43 of them being AFL.
Located in the heart of Melbourne, the stadium is renowned for regularly staging AFL, A-League and BBL action under the famous retractable roof.
With approximately 68 full time employees and roughly 850 part time employees, MSL is committed to delivering brilliant events and creating memorable experiences for Marvel Stadium’s millions of patrons.
MSL offers corporate suites, sponsorship opportunities, and a range of functions and events, including but not limited to conferences and seminars, business forums and presentations, gala dinners, cocktail functions, trade shows and product launches, and award ceremonies.
On behalf of MSL’s partnership with The Walt Disney Company Australia, the stadium was officially rebranded as Marvel Stadium in October 2018.
The partnership will run for an initial 8-year term, however, both Melbourne Stadiums Limited and The Walt Disney Company Australia see this as a long-term partnership that will live long beyond; as both companies are in the business of entertaining and providing premium experiences for fans.
Fans will see an evolution of the stadium that adds value for people of all ages and allows them to get closer to the much-loved Marvel stories and characters.
The Victorian State Government is funding the redevelopment of Marvel Stadium, so it can continue to attract world-class sporting and entertainment events for the next 30 years. The stadium redevelopment project will significantly enhance the Stadium’s customer experience and play a key role in the continuing growth of the Docklands precinct.
MSL’s partnership with TWDC (AUS) will enhance the AFL’s / State Governments redevelopment plans for the stadium precinct and surrounding Docklands area, with a dedicated Marvel Zone within the stadium precinct.
