AAMI Park became Melbourne's first huge multi-purpose rectangular stadium after completion in 2010.
AAMI Park is an open-air sports stadium on the location of Edwin Flack Field in the Sports and Entertainment Precinct within the Melbourne City Centre. It is Melbourne’s chief rectangular sports and entertainment venue. Known as the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium during its development, the ground was formally named the AAMI Park on 16 March 2010, in an 8 years sponsorship deal with insurance firm AAMI. Made with a cost of A$267.5 million, AAMI Stadium highlights a particular cutting-edge bio-frame design with a geodesic arch roof which considerably covers the seating zone. The model empowers onlookers to enjoy unhindered views, free from pillars, dividers or other support structures. The 30,000-seat state-of-the-art stadium is a long-overdue expansion to the gaming scene in Melbourne, with mid-range sporting occasions previously held next door at the now-demolished Olympic Park. The stadium is perfect for all rectangular sports and is the home ground of Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City Football Club (A-League), Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club (NRL), Melbourne Rebels Super Rugby franchise and the Melbourne Rising Rugby Union team.
The stadium's significant occupants are NRL team Melbourne Storm, the Super Rugby team Melbourne Rebels, Rugby Union team Melbourne Rising and the A-League teams Melbourne Victory FC and Melbourne City FC.
It also hosts international matches and facilitated Melbourne's events during the 2015 Asian Cup. Amid this competition, the venue was known as Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.
AAMI Park facilitated rugby league Four Nations matches in 2010 and 2014 and was utilized for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
