Telstra Dome



DescriptionRatingInfo
Docklands Stadium, currently known as Telstra Dome, and originally as Victoria Stadium and Colonial Stadium, is a multi purpose sports and entertainment stadium in the Docklands precinct of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, that caters for both sporting and entertainment events. The stadium was developed as a replacement for Waverley Park. Originally developed by Docklands Stadium Consortium and thereafter controlled by Seven Network the remaining leasehold interest in the stadium on 21 June 2006 was sold to James Fielding Funds Management for AU$330 million.[1] In 2025 the AFL is expected to take over the ownership[2]. Like Waverley, it was built specifically for Australian rules football, unlike most grounds of that size in Australia that were originally designed for cricket. It is used as a home ground by the AFL clubs Carlton, Essendon, North Melbourne, St Kilda and Western Bulldogs. Other Melbourne-based teams in the AFL competition play home games at the Telstra Dome (along with the MCG). The stadium has also been host to other sporting events, including association football (soccer), cricket, rugby league and rugby union, as well as many general entertainment events such as concerts (Robbie Williams, Barbara Streisand, The Boss, Green Day and U2), wrestling (WWE Global Warning, 2002), and boxing (Kostya Tszyu vs Jesse James Leilya, 2003).
