AAMI Park has been voted by sports fans as Australia’s Best Mid-Sized Stadium in the inaugural Austadiums Awards, a superb result for our world-class rectangular stadium.
AAMI Park also took home the Best NRL Stadium and Best A-League stadium awards after fantastic 2018 seasons for tenant clubs Melbourne Storm, Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City.
More than twenty percentage points clear of the nearest nominee in each category, the landslide results indicate what a fantastic job our Event, Operations and Customer Service teams have been doing to cement AAMI Park as a leading sport venue since opening in 2010.
The award for Australia’s Best Stadium went to our friends across the road at the MCG, winning the honour with 43% of the vote. AAMI Park was not too far behind however, finishing the voting in fourth place behind the MCG, Optus Stadium and Adelaide Oval.
We were also not too far behind in the Best Indoor Arena category, with Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena and Melbourne Arena finishing in 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively behind Perth’s RAC Arena and Marvel Stadium.
Thank you to all staff who have worked at AAMI Park over the past 12 months, and a particular congratulations to our AAMI Park team; your hard work has allowed our stadium to shine in 2018 and be fittingly honoured by Australian sports fans!
