27 Feb 2019

A new mural and basketball court at Marvel Stadium was christened by Australia’s biggest basketball stars on February 19 in the lead-up to major events at the stadium later this year.

The massive mural features Andrew Bogut, Liz Cambage, Lauren Jackson, Ben Simmons and Andrew Gaze – a collection of Australia’s most successful players.

Andrew Bogut, Liz Cambage and Lauren Jackson attended the unveiling and played on the court and posed in front of the mural while Fox Sports presenter Tim Robinson addressed the audience.

The Australian Boomers will be playing the USA Men’s Team at Marvel on August 22 and 24. The games are expected to bring 100,000 fans to the stadium.

“To celebrate the Boomers versus USA basketball games in Melbourne in August, Visit Victoria in collaboration with Basketball Australia commissioned internationally-renowned graffiti artist Sofles to create a mural celebrating Australian basketball together with the three-on-three court that will be available for use by the public,” Mr Robinson said.

“The installation demonstrates Melbourne’s pride as a home of basketball and is set to become an iconic must-see Melbourne space for any sports fan.”
