AAMI Park | Melbourne Rectangular Stadium
Along with Melbourne Park and the MCG, AAMI Park (Olympic Park) is a vital part of Melbourne's premier sporting precinct.
Victoria's burgeoning rugby and soccer codes have long awaited a dedicated stadium to accommodate professional level crowds in a way that provides the intimate viewing experience afforded by purpose built venues.
AAMI Park provides the missing link in Melbourne's sporting infrastructure for a medium sized rectangular pitch stadium.
Playing tenants include A-League's Melbourne Victory & Melbourne City FC, National Rugby League's Melbourne Storm and the new Melbourne Super Rugby team the Melbourne Rebels. Melbourne Football Club use AAMI Park as an administration base whilst Olympic Park Sports Medicine Centre, [email protected] Park, Tennis Victoria and the Victorian Olympic Council are also tenants.
The world class AAMI Park stadium features a cutting-edge Bioframe design with a geodesic dome roof which substantially covers the seating area. The beauty of the design is that spectators will enjoy unobstructed views, free from pillars, walls or other support structures. This design required 50 per cent less steel than a typical stadium roof of the same size.
Built on Edwin Flack field, AAMI Park rivals the word's best in becoming a world-class event and sports administration complex. It also features a sports campus, including an elite training centre and office accommodation that rivals the world's best.
After an agreement was reached with Melbourne Victory and the Football Federation of Victoria, AAMI Park was expanded to accommodate more than 30,000 fans.
The stadium roof is covered with thousands of LED lights that can shine in any colour and be programmed into a multitude of patterns. The environmentally friendly LED lights use around one tenth of the power required to floodlight the stadium and without any light spill into the surrounding area.
