Reopening Roadmap

PUBLIC UPDATE – 23 NOVEMBER 2020

EAGLE STADIUM Has Re-Opened 

Eagle Stadium has joined stadia and gyms across metropolitan Melbourne that have re-opened following the easing of restrictions.

The centres will open in a limited capacity, with a reduced number of people allowed at any one point in time. As we open Eagle Stadium the safety of our patrons and staff is our first priority. This means you will notice several changes when you do return.

Opening Hours

Monday – Friday 6:00am – 8:00pm
Saturday 8:00am – 8:00pm
Sunday & Public Holidays           8:00am – 8:00pm

WHEN CAN GYMS RE-OPEN?

Gyms are open with limits on the number of people in spaces. Classes can resume with up to 20 people. Equipment should be cleaned after each use. Facilities must have a COVID marshal.   

Gyms must ensure they have COVIDSafe practices, such as:

  • no shared equipment in classes
  • limiting high-intensity exercise
  • ensuring patrons wear masks unless out of breath
  • no physical contact between trainers and customers
  • staggered class times and time gap of 15 minutes between sessions to avoid congregation or exceeding group limits
  • having a COVIDSafe Marshal on site.

When can Stadium Sports resume?

Large sporting complexes like stadiums, multi-sport facilities and aquatic centres can open for up to 150 people per facility or at 25% of venue capacity limit (whichever is greater). Group sizes are limited to 20 for indoor activity and 50 for outdoors. It is recommended to ensure that there is at least five metres between groups. Each space within the venue is subject to the four square metre rule

Contact and non-contact sport can resume for both adults and children. Outdoors groups are limited to up to 50 people with an overall cap of 500 patrons. Indoors up to 20 people can participate per group exercise or activity or as many people as are required to play an indoor sport with an overall cap of 150 patrons. Smaller venues can have a smaller number of people. 

DO I HAVE TO WEAR A MASK WHILE EXERCISING?

You do not need to wear a face mask when exercising outdoors if you can keep a distance of 1.5 metres from people you don’t live with.  

You should wear a face mask when you are outdoors and you cannot keep 1.5 metres distance from others. You do have to carry a face mask with you at all times, unless you have a lawful reason not to wear a mask. 

A face mask must be worn when exercising indoors, except where that or physical activity leaves you out of breath or puffing.  

You must carry a  face mask with you at all times, unless you have a lawful reason not to wear a mask (such as a medical condition or are under the age of 12).

  • Access to hand sanitiser, wipes and disinfectant sprays throughout the facilities
  • Shower and change room facilities are now open, toilets are open
