Project manager sought for Marvel Stadium upgrade

The AFL is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from the market for the provision of project management services to assist it with the stage one upgrade of Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.

The project proposes a major upgrade and refurbishment of the stadium and surrounding concourse, while keeping the stadium operational for the maximum amount of time.

It includes the creation of more vibrant connectivity to and around the stadium from the adjacent Southern Cross Station and the CBD.

It will also cover a major expansion of the eastern (or city side) wing of the stadium, a reimagining of the south end of the stadium including the creation of a new, vibrant public space – all combined with a variety of in-stadium improvements and upgrades to service all sectors of the community.

The budget for the project is currently set at A$225 million, which is funded by the Victorian State Government as announced in April 2018.

Responses to the Request for EOI must be received by Tuesday September 25 via the link here.

The Marvel Stadium was known as Colonial Stadium when it opened in 2000 before it became Telstra Dome in 2002 and Etihad Stadium in 2009.
