Stadium Spotlight: Melbourne Rectangular Stadium

That is unlikely to be the final name for the stadium, but “rectangular” is a fitting working name as the 31,500 capacity stadium, which will host soccer and rugby, is being made in part to replace the reliance on the oval stadia of Melbourne suitable for Australian Rules Football and cricket.

Construction on the new stadium began last year, and here’s the progress so far (live webcam here), with a scheduled opening of May 2010. Check out the LED roof lighting.
