Mars StadiumĀ 

 

The Ballarat Miners played host to the Geelong Football Club in their round two JLT Community Series clash at Mars Stadium on Saturday March 17. The Miners, playing in their 21st summer, produced another brilliant display with five goals to none in their 27-point win, avenging their round one loss to Geelong.

The Ballarat Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. It is home to the Ballarat Miners Australian Football League team and is currently undergoing a multi-million-dollar rebuild. The stadium has also been used for soccer matches, but is most famous for hosting the 1956 Summer Olympics. Since its construction, the stadium has undergone several name changes. It was named the Ballarat Sports Ground until the mid 1960s, and again as the Ballarat Stadium from 1961 until the mid 1970s.

Mars Stadium, Ballarat (also known as Mars Stadium) is a multi-purpose stadium located in Ballarat, Australia. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Western Bulldogs in the Australian Football League. It’s also the venue for Australian rules football’s grand final. It also hosts junior football matches. The stadium was built in 1965 but has been extensively refurbished since, notably in 2009, with the most recent stage in 2011.

The future of Australian motorsport is the Ballarat Motorsport Park. Located in the historic goldfields of south-eastern Victoria, this world class motorsport facility, known as Mars Stadium, will play host to Australian circuit racing, drag racing and the V8 Supercars.

Exciting times at Ballarat. A massive $1 billion project has just been approved for Ballarat’s Junction Oval. It’s expected to create 6000 jobs over 2 years and generate $500 million annually in indirect benefits. The biggest project in the Boroondara Council’s history, it’s expected to take 3 years to complete and will involve demolishing the Junction Oval and rebuilding it.

The million-dollar question: will Ballarat get its own footy stadium? A master plan was released a little over a week ago, and it outlines a stadium to be built at an existing shopping centre (which happens to be right next to a train station), and it does so on the premise of building two identical stadiums, one with 17,000 seats and another with 15,000.

The Mars Stadium, Ballarat, is Australia’s only soccer-specific ground, and it’s currently under construction. The stadium, which will seat 22,000, will be situated in the suburb of Eureka, approximately 50 kilometers (31 mi) from central Ballarat. Its construction began in January of 2017, and the venue is expected to be complete in February of 2020.
