This state-of-the-art arena lights up Melbourne's sports scene

Conceived and developed for Melbourne's burgeoning rugby and soccer scene, AAMI Park is an inspired $267.5 million sports arena of rectangular shape and the home ground to Melbourne Victory soccer team, Melbourne Storm rugby league team and, as of 2011, the new Melbourne Rebels Super 15 rugby union franchise.

Featuring a Bioframe design with a geodesic roof boasting a spectacular LED light system capable of adopting myriad light patterns and colours, the ground holds 30,050 people with the record attendance the 29,442 league fans who crammed in to see Australia play New Zealand on 7 May 2010.

AAMI Park has become a favourite with the corporate crowd with 24 18-seat boxes with external seating, a 1000-capacity dining room, 14 bars, an elite training centre, gymnasium, lap pool and office space for tenant clubs (the AFL's Melbourne Demons use AAMI as their base of operations).
