Cash boost for Geelong Stadium

The Victorian Government will inject a further $40 million into the final stage of the redevelopment of Geelong’s GMHBA/Kardinia Park bringing the venue up to a capacity of 40,000.

The new funding announcement comes in addition to the government’s previous commitment of $102 million to the project.

“Kardinia Park is a much-loved part of Geelong and Victoria and we’re proud to be backing its development for the benefit of fans and users now and for generations to come,” said Victorian Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events, Martin Pakula.

“With new and improved facilities and a bigger capacity, the stadium will continue to attract A-grade sport and entertainment to Geelong.”

The Stage 5 works will include a new 14,000-seat stand, new administration area for stadium and event staff and dedicated sustainability measures.
