The art of the game

05 Dec 2018

A hybrid street art basketball court is likely to appear at Marvel Stadium soon in the build-up to 2019’s major games.

The USA Men’s Team is travelling to Australia to play the Australian Boomers at Marvel on August 22 and 24, 2019.

Visit Victoria has planned a huge street art installation at the stadium in collaboration with renowned artist Sofles to promote the event.

It will be the first time the USA team has been in the country since the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

The predicted 50,000-plus crowds are to be the biggest either team has played in front of.

The mural, planned for Gate Seven, will span nine by 18 metres of the wall, and 18 by 18 metres of the ground. It will pay homage to Victoria’s contribution to basketball and the historic 2019 games.

The games are hoped to further Australia’s reputation as a basketball nation and Victoria as the home of basketball in Australia.

In its planning application Marvel is aiming for the mural be completed by the end of this year.
