"Wouldn't it be great to bring your thousands of employees together under one roof?"


Many large organisations find it difficult to find a venue that can accommodate the number of employees in their business all in the one function space.

We all know that it can be a fulfilling experience to be in one place with your whole team to celebrate, launch or thank people that make it happen - your employees.

With 20,000 sqare metres of arena surrounded by a 50,000 seating bowl, Etihad Stadium offers the opportunity to host large scale events in a setting unlike any other venue in the country.

Impress with the high impact event only Etihad Stadium can provide. Leave a lasting impression on your clients by hosting an event on the Stadium Arena. Product launches, banquets, conventions, the possibilities are endless.
