Lakeside Stadium



Redeveloped in 2011, Lakeside Stadium replaces the late Olympic Park Stadium and is home to Melbourne's athletic and soccer teams for training purposes as well as a number of casual users looking to take advantage of the world-class facilities. 

Lakeside Stadium boasts beautiful views of Melbourne City and houses world-class athletic facilities and FIFA-sized natural grass pitch used for both soccer and hockey.

The stadium itself houses up to 7,400 spectators and includes designated athletics warm up area. The Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) building at Lakeside houses an elite training gym  with indoor running track, 25 meter pool (with ice baths) and multi-purpose sprung floor. 

The grass pitch is of course the home ground of South Melbourne Football Club and the athletics track a much loved training ground for some of our top athletes.

Lakeside Stadium houses a number of key sporting associations, including Athletics Australia, Little Athletics Australia, Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS), Little Athletics Victoria and Athletics Victoria. The stadium is available for corporate and school bookings and features a number of fantastic function spaces.
