City of Casey
Casey Fields

Casey Fields is South East Melbourne’s premier sports and recreation precinct. It is home to two professional sporting clubs, Melbourne Demons (AFL/AFLW) and Melbourne City Football Club (A-League), and regularly hosts state level and nationally televised events in sports such as cricket, rugby league, athletics and BMX.

In less than two decades, Casey Fields has grown from 87-hectares of farmland to a complex boasting more than 30 fields, tracks and courts for professional and community sport. With an increasing array of clubs and associations partnering with Council, and with a dedicated train station proposed as part of the future Clyde Rail extension, the future promises to be exciting.

Partnerships, clubs and events

Casey Fields is the City of Casey’s premier sporting precinct and the epicentre of South East Melbourne’s sporting landscape, with professional clubs, athletes and events finding a home at the complex. Throughout 2021, Casey Fields’ two professional tenant clubs, the Melbourne Demons and Melbourne City FC, won silverware in the AFL and A-League Men’s respectively. Casey Fields regularly hosts nationally televised events such as AFL pre-season, AFLW, VFL, Women’s Big Bash League, NRL pre-season and A-League Women's games. With facilities open to the public, residents can come to Casey Fields and see some of Australia’s best male and female athletes plying their trade, and with professional pathways on-site in sports such as Australian Rules, cricket and football, the platform is set for Casey's young people to chase their sporting dreams.

Melbourne Demons / Casey Demons

AFL Demons

Since 2009 Casey Fields has been the Melbourne Demons’ second home as part of a 30-year partnership with the City of Casey. With Covid-19 restrictions forcing them out of the AAMI Park precinct in early 2020, the men’s team was permanently based at Casey Fields for much of the 2020-21 AFL seasons – culminating in the  2021 AFL premiership win!

Since adopting the Casey Demons name for its VFL affiliate teams in 2017, the partnership has evolved further, particularly in the women’s and junior spaces. Casey Fields now hosts the majority of Melbourne’s AFLW regular season matches, an annual AFL pre-season match and all of Casey’s VFL and VFLW games. The AFLW team conducts most of its training sessions at Casey Fields, as does the club’s Next Generation Academy, while the men’s team will continue to have a strong presence on-site in to 2022 and beyond. The Demons and Council work closely together to deliver an annual suite of community programs within the City of Casey, enabling as many residents as possible to experience the thrill of interacting with some of the stars of the AFL and AFLW competitions.

Melbourne City Football Club

Melbourne City Football Club

In December 2020 Melbourne City Football Club announced it was relocating to South East Melbourne in a partnership with the City of Casey and City of Greater Dandenong. Over the course of 2021, the club’s entire operations shifted to Casey Fields, where they will be based for at least the next 30 years as part of a landmark partnership with Council. Melbourne City is the 2020-21 A-League Men’s champions, and the team started its 2021/22 pre-season campaign at Casey Fields in August, as did the club’s four-time A-League Women’s championship-winning team.

Melbourne City also boasts seven junior teams, which now train and play all of their NPL Victoria matches on-site, as well as a City Football Schools program which is open for all residents to join. The club’s administration is also based out of Casey Fields, along with its charitable arm, City in the Community, which is committed to running football-inspired community outreach programs across the City of Casey and wider South East Melbourne region. As part of its agreement with Council, Melbourne City is committed to delivering a wide range of community activations and programs within the City of Casey.

Melbourne Storm / NRL Victoria

Melbourne Storm

The Melbourne Storm hosted the first-ever professional rugby league match in South East Melbourne when it took on the North Queensland Cowboys at Casey Fields in February 2020. The match marked the start of a partnership between the City of Casey and Melbourne Storm which both organisations are committed to seeing flourish into the future, given the strength of grassroots rugby league within Casey and the wider South East Melbourne region. A planned pre-season game against Newcastle in 2021 at Casey Fields had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, but a clash with the New Zealand Warriors in front of a bumper crowd in February 2022 more than made up for that. The partnership extends to family days at Casey Fields and further activations in the community and builds upon Council’s lengthy relationship with NRL Victoria, which sees the Victorian Thunderbolts play several matches at Casey Fields each season in the NSW Jersey Flegg Cup and SG Ball competitions against junior NRL teams.

Casey South Melbourne Cricket Club / Cricket Victoria

Casey South Melbourne Cricket

The Casey South Melbourne Cricket Club, plying its trade in the Victorian Premier Cricket competition, has been a staple of Casey Fields for more than a decade. The picturesque grounds provide a backdrop for all of the Swans’ home games as well as regularly playing host to Victorian Premier Cricket finals of all grades. Cricket’s presence at Casey Fields is about to get even stronger with the announcement that Cricket Victoria will be establishing one of its Metropolitan Community Cricket Centres on-site. This will pave the way for the state body to deliver an even more comprehensive suite of men’s, women’s and junior programs at Casey Fields that service the wider South East Melbourne community. 

Melbourne Stars / Women’s Big Bash League

Melbourne Stars

Since the advent of the Big Bash League competition, the Melbourne Stars and City of Casey have enjoyed a partnership that has delivered numerous family days and community activations at Casey Fields for our residents to enjoy. The relationship has also extended to several Women’s Big Bash League games being hosted at Casey Fields, some of which have been televised nationally. The continued development of cricket facilities at Casey Fields will likely see more of these high calibre events held here in the future.

Melbourne Rebels / Rugby Victoria

Melbourne Rebels

The Melbourne Rising hosted a National Rugby Championship match against the Fiji Drua at the Regional Rugby League Precinct in October 2019 on a day that also combined with the hosting of a Rugby World Cup live site for a Wallabies game and the Melbourne International 7s weekend. Rugby Victoria’s successful partnership with the City of Casey in hosting of the 7s event led to an agreement to again host the tournament at Casey Fields in 2020, only for COVID-19 to see the event cancelled. The Melbourne Rebels have also hosted open training sessions at Casey Fields for its South East Melbourne fan base.

Little Athletics Victoria

Little Athletics Victoria

The Casey Fields Regional Athletics Centre is Victoria’s number two-rated athletics track in Victoria behind Lakeside Stadium, so much so that the venue plays host to the Little Athletics Victoria State Championships each year. This event attracts thousands of competitors and spectators to Casey annually, showcasing the facilities to athletes from across the state and providing a boon for local hospitality and accommodation businesses. 

BMX Victoria

BMX Victoria

The Casey Fields BMX Track has quickly developed into one of Victoria’s premier facilities in the sport, which was evidenced by the fact it played host to the 2019 State Championships. Casey Fields also regularly hosts Track Attack Series events, which again highlights the facility to spectators far and wide.

The precinct’s premier facility, the Main Oval, has fronted Casey Fields since April 2006,  regularly hosting AFL pre-season, AFLW and VFL / VFLW matches. Adjoining the playing field is the Casey Demons / Melbourne Demons administration pavilion, complete with change rooms, a function room and office space both for the club and for state sporting associations. To facilitate the growth of the AFLW program, the facility received an $8 million upgrade in 2018-19 that saw the development of an indoor high-performance centre. The project, which also included a refurbishment of the existing pavilion, was made possible by $5m in funding from the Victorian Government and $500,000 from the AFL.  

Long-term plans for the Main Oval include an upgrade of lighting and the addition of grandstands which would lift the venue to a standard capable of hosting AFL Premiership matches. Provision for the addition of a drop-in cricket wicket also form part of future plans, which will open up the possibility of Big Bash League cricket matches being played at Casey Fields.

Stage 1 facilities will remain open to the public and will be regularly used by schools groups and local clubs who will have the opportunity to play and train alongside some of Australia’s best footballers.

Master Plan

The Casey Fields Master Plan was adopted by the City of Casey on 3 July 2018.

Casey Fields is a hub for local sport and recreation. These facilities, set in parkland, are the heart of regional sport for South East Melbourne. The setting encourages all residents and visitors of varying fitness levels to be active.

The Casey Fields Master Plan 2018 sets the strategic direction for development, renewal and management over the next 20 years. The plan has direction on the site elements and improvements to the area. Improvements include the parkland setting, informal open spaces, paths and road network and car parking. The plan also reviews and details each of the sporting precincts within Casey Fields. The development is underpinned by the vision to improve health and wellbeing, as our community is encouraged to improve their health and wellbeing in their own ways.

Given the volume of development that has occurred at Casey Fields since 2018, and the new partnerships that have been established, including with Melbourne City Football Club and Cricket Victoria, the Casey Fields Master Plan is currently in the process of being updated to accurately reflect what is on site now and what is to be constructed in the future. The Master Plan update will be published here in 2022. In the meantime, you can view the 2018 Casey Fields Master Plan via the link below.
