Great Venue

Watched an AFL game there. From parking to concessions is very good. The seating is also very good. Had Medallion club access.

If you are wanting to watch an AFL game or cricket match this is a good place to go. Don't make a side trip though unless you're going to see something because it's just another stadium. It's close to Southern Cross Station.

My mate took me to Etihad Stadium for my first ever A-League game. The stadium is located right next to Southern Cross stadium. We went to see Melbourne Victory vs Sydney FC. Outside the stadium, there were kids activities and dancing. Inside, the atmosphere was amazing, the chanting from both teams was non-stop, the game finished 2-1. My friend was... More

Recently attended a BBL match and was impressed with the stadium, being close to the action and in a very accessible location. Have heard it can be different when the roof is closed, however found the facilities / staff to be great and would be happy to attend another match in future.

We went to the cricket on a stupidly hot day and it was boiling inside but the ground was amazing with great staff.

I took my 3 young boys to Etihad for the Big Bash cricket. The location and facilities at Etihad are excellent, however on a hot summer day with the roof closed, there was simply no air circulation and we had to leave the game very early as I feared for the health of my children. The temperature felt 7 -... More

For some reason, on a day when it was 38 degrees outside, the roof for the big bash game that attracted 45k visitors was left closed making it extremely uncomfortable inside. Great game and arena is fantastic for view and atmosphere

At the KFC Big Bash League Melbourne Renegades v's Melbourne Stars 8.30 pm 37 deg still inside like being in a sauna and the bloody roof has been closed the whole time. Great game but some very disappointed people and especially children due to the heat.

Great location, easy to access by train or tram. Pouring rain outside when we went but dry as a bone inside and no game stoppages. Only downside was that you miss the commentary that you get on TV. Not sure if that is accessible using the provided free wifi. Could have been more trains available when game finished as one... More
