Victoria’s title as the sports and entertainment capital didn't happen by chance. It’s our world-class network of stadiums and arenas that make us the national leader for the big events.
We’re number one, but we’ll never be complacent, and now the Victorian Government is offering Wyndham locals a once-in-a-lifetime chance to shape the future of our venues.
The Government’s Major Sporting Stadia Strategy will examine what we have today and what we need tomorrow to ensure Victoria remains home for the biggest and best events.
A Ministerial Working Group chaired by Premier Daniel Andrews has met for the first time, and will develop the strategy by next year.
We’ll be putting people first and listening to sports and stadium industry experts, major event organisers and national sports organisations as we draw up a blueprint for what the sporting capital of the world will look like in years to come.
Victoria already boasts a suite of stadiums and arenas that other states can only dream of, but we’ll never rest on our laurels. Organisers of the big sport, art and cultural events have us at the top of their lists – and with good reason.
Melbourne was crowned the Sport Business Ultimate Sport City of the Decade at the 10 Year Anniversary Awards in Switzerland. We claimed the Best Venues category too.
The Labor Government is already taking action to grow Victoria’s stadiums. Our $338 million Stage Two redevelopment of Melbourne Park is under way, and we’re upgrading Simonds Stadium, Eureka Stadium and Junction Oval.
