Geelong's GMHBA Stadium Upgrade: Innovation Meets Security

GMHBA Stadium, also known as Kardinia Park and nestled in the heart of Geelong, stands as more than just a sporting venue. It's a dynamic center of community engagement and a symbol of the city's dedication to creating a lively, inclusive atmosphere. This renowned stadium, the proud home of the Geelong Cats, has experienced significant transformations, with its most recent redevelopment poised to boost its capacity to over 40,000 spectators. This expansion features a new two-tier northern grandstand capable of accommodating 14,000 fans, elevating the stadium's capability to host larger and more varied events, ranging from AFL matches to international cricket.

With such a significant increase in capacity, ensuring the safety of GMHBA Stadium is of utmost importance, particularly considering the wide array of events it hosts.
