Docklands Stadium (also known by its former sponsored names of Colonial Stadium, Telstra Dome and Etihad Stadium as well as its current sponsorship name of Marvel Stadium) is a multi-purpose sports and entertainment stadium in the Docklands precinct of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Construction started in October 1997 under the working name, "Victoria Stadium", and was completed in 2000 at a cost of A$460 million.

Originally built as a replacement for Waverley Park, the stadium is primarily used for Australian rules football and is the headquarters of the Australian Football League (AFL) which, since 7 October 2016, has had exclusive ownership of the venue. Also headquartered in the stadium precinct is Seven Network's digital broadcast centre.

The stadium also hosts a number of other sporting events, including some Melbourne Victory soccer home matches, domestic Twenty20 cricket matches, one-off rugby league and rugby union matches as well as number of special events and concerts.
