    Great viewing and entertainment
    Wherever you sit in this stadium, you will have a great view. We attended a Big Bash match and were entertained by a local band, some great tunes and plenty of places to eat/drink. Allow time on arrival as security will check all bags and perform body scans.

    Great Stadium
    Good Friday day at the AFL was a highlight for Easter. The stadium is easy to find. great access and seating provides views of the game from every area. Wonderful half time entertainment for the Royal Childrens Hospital.

    Excellent service, great facilities for parents
    Excellent facilities. We came to watch an AFL game with young children, one being a 7 month old in a pram. I read that there was cloakage available for prams but I was skeptical about it being easy! On arrival, a staff member approached me and asked if I knew where to find the cloak room and the parents room. He gave me easy directions. Upon entering, I located the cloak room and the staff members there were also beyond helpful. The lady showed me where the parents room was just across the way and said don’t worry about taking your nappy bag or anything to your seat, just leave it here and pop in anytime you need it! They beyond helpful and friendly. The parents room itself was exceptionally clean and well appointed. Very impressed Marvel Stadium!

This stadium is of a high standard seating, toilets and views from the stands are epic. Went to see Melbourne v Sydney football teams - Sydney won 4-1, much to Melbourne’s chagrin, and our disappointment. The stadium itself is worth a visit it can hold around 56,347 and Was built at a cost of A$460 million, in year 2000.

This is a great place to watch the footy. Could use some cupholders around the seats but otherwise good. There doesn’t seem to be a bad seat in the place and the closed roof creates a great atmosphere. Nice and close to the players too

I visited Marvel Stadium for 2 games of Footy (Friday and Sunday). Unfortunately on both days my food was luke-warm and it was very congested navigating the stadium making it quite frustrating. Having the roof was great as it was not so cold.

Marvel Stadium is one of only two stadiums to host AFL football matches in Melbourne. It will accommodate more than 50,000 fans on match day. The roof can be retracted. The seats are comfortable. Marvel Stadium is so called because of a sponsorship deal. It's often called the Docklands Stadium.

Have been here a few times and am always pleasantly surprised by how friendly and helpful the staff are. From little hints about taking photos of where you're parked, to where the nearest toilets are from your seats.
I have never really had bad seats here either. I must chose good ones or it's a really well designed stadium!
Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the phenomenonly priced car parking and food & drink.

A great stadium to watch sport, especially given the Melbourne weather. Located in the CBD, it’s a must visit. Especially worth booking level 2 with great comfort including drink holders.

Easy to get to by the train. Would normally sit at the medallion club sometimes with the Tvs and other times normal seats. As a 6ft 3 male its not the best for leg room. The main seats are better for tall people. The buffet was amazing. I love the new led floodlights on the roof
