GMHBA Stadium

Posted in Location & Attractions @ May 2nd 2019 1:44pm - By Best Western Geelong Motor Inn

GMHBA Stadium in Geelong is one of the most impressive and appealing venues within Victoria.

Originally built in 1941, GMHBA Stadium (2017 – present) as we currently know it due to naming rights, has previously been known as:

  • Kardinia Park Stadium;
  • Shell Stadium from 1999–2001;
  • Baytec Stadium from early 2001 for two months and;
  • Skilled Stadium from 2001–2011
  • Simonds Stadium from 2012–2017

GMHBA Stadium is the heart and soul of AFL within the Geelong community as it plays host to the well-known Geelong Football Club and has done so for the past 60+ years. GMHBA Stadium is known to many passionate supporters as ‘The Cattery’.

Throughout the years, the stadium has undergone a number of redevelopments and upgrades, which has enabled it to become a first-class multipurpose venue, putting it in good stead for the future.

One of the major and most vital upgrades to the stadium was the introduction of the light towers in 2013. The four incredible light towers stand an approximate 73 meters tall and dominate the Geelong skyline.

The stadium is only a 5 minute drive from Geelong Motor Inn or a leisurely 30 minute walk. Book your accommodation now at www.geelongmotorinn.com.au or call 03 5222 4777.
