The stadium will be segmented into four zones, meaning fans won’t have access to the entire venue. There will be amenities and food and beverage stores in every zone.

As per Victorian Government regulations, fans attending matches at Marvel Stadium will need to QR code sign in once they are in the stadium.

You will also be allocated a specific gate for entry which is based on your seat location – this will be the only gate you will be allowed to enter through.

Once inside Marvel Stadium, please scan the QR code displayed and check in with your details.

Marvel Stadium is now cashless

Make sure you’ve got your bank card, Tap & Go/Apple Pay or similar contactless payment choice ready to go on your phone because moving forward Marvel Stadium is cashless – this includes food, beverages, parking, and merchandise.
