Asia Cup is coming to Docklands

01 Feb 2011

Australia may have lost the bid for the 2022 Soccer World Cup, but as somewhat of a consolation prize has won the bid to host the 2015 Asia Cup …and where better to hold the opening ceremony than Docklands?

The Asia Cup will kick off in January 2015 with the opening ceremony and first match featuring the Socceroos to be held at Etihad Stadium.

At least a further five matches, of the 32-game event, will be hosted in Melbourne and shared between Etihad Stadium and AAMI Park.

Australia won the bid on January 5 when the Asian Football Confederation in Doha gave the uncontested bid its stamp of approval.

The tournament, which has the potential to inject about $20 million into the local economy, will feature the 16 top Asian teams and matches will be played in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

Sydney is likely to host the final match in its 80,000-capacity Olympic Stadium.
