Telstra Dome, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

"Marvel Stadium", also known as "Docklands Stadium" when excluding sponsorship name rights, 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. In 2000, Commonwealth Bank took over Colonial State Bank and later sold the naming rights to Telstra for about $50 million. The name was changed from "Colonial Stadium" to "Telstra Dome" on 1 October 2002. During this time it was colloquially referred to as simply "The Dome". On 1 March 2009, when the naming rights transferred to Etihad Airways, the venue officially became known as "Etihad Stadium" and in August 2012 the partnership was extended for five more years until 2019. Etihad Airways paid an estimated $5–$8 million a year for naming rights at the "Docklands stadium". Controversy surrounded the new name, with the AFL initially refusing to recognise it. AFL chief operating officer Gillon McLachlan confirmed the AFL would not recognise the new name due to a lucrative sponsorship deal between the AFL and Australia's largest airline, Qantas. After negotiation between the two parties, AFL broadcasters and clubs are permitted by the governing body to use the stadium's sponsored name. In September 2018, the stadium was renamed for a fourth time, to "Marvel Stadium", after the stadium operators negotiated a deal with The Walt Disney Company (the parent company of Marvel Entertainment) to change the naming rights and install a Marvel retail store at the venue.
