COVID-Safe Plan

Marvel Stadium’s COVIDSafe Plan is to provide key stakeholders with details on the strategies that are currently being implemented to ensure we are in line with current Victorian Government COVID-19 guidelines.

Marvel Stadium engages a number of contractors to deliver event services including catering, security, medical and cleaning. These contractors are required to comply with Victorian Government COVID-19 Guidelines whilst also taking reasonable direction from the Stadium.

This plan will be reviewed and updated following restrictions relating to COVID-19 change in Victoria and nationally and will remain live as long as COVID-19 remains an identified threat by the Department of Health and World Health Organisation.

Cleaning

  • Hand sanitiser is available throughout the stadium on all levels.
  • Enhanced airflow and improving air circulation throughout the stadium.
  • A high touch-point cleaning schedule has been established and implemented.

Contactless

Marvel Stadium will operate as a contactless stadium:

  • Cashless: all service transactions resulting in a purchase process. We will not be able to facilitate any cash transactions (exclu. any betting agency transactions).
  • Touch-less patron entry: hand-scanners and turnstiles allow for tickets to be scanned without physical contact being made.

Mobility impaired patrons will purchase their tickets via Ticketmaster’s Accessible Seating Line, or via the email service for Wheelchair, Companion Card or Special Needs booking requirements.

All ticket purchasers must confirm, for themselves and on behalf of the other patrons they are purchasing for, that they acknowledge and accept the risk in attending an event at Marvel Stadium along with abiding by the most up to date COVID-19 Government directives. This is included in the terms and conditions of purchasing a ticket.

Ingress

To ensure the safe arrival of all patrons, ingress points have been designed so that we do not create places of mass gathering on the internal/external concourses whilst maintaining social distancing where possible.

Patrons will be allocated a specific gate for entry which is based on their seat location to ensure an even spread of patrons around the stadium.

Mask wearing

Attendee expectations regarding mask wearing will be dependent on restrictions being enforced at the time of the event however will be recommended when they can’t socially distance. This will be continuously revisited dependent on Victorian Government guidelines and amended accordingly.
