Australia's sports tech capital

Melbourne's vibrant and culturally diverse community provides the perfect ecosystem for the growth and development of sports technology on the world stage.

Australian Sports Technologies Network (ASTN) estimates that 65 per cent of the Australian sports technologies industries are based in Victoria – including Catapult Sport, Champion Data, Belgravia Technologies, Interact Sport, DMC Sport, POD Active, Planet Innovation, InfoPlum, and Ventou.

Crowned as the Sport Business Ultimate Sport City of the Decade in 2016, Melbourne is universally regarded as Australia's sporting capital.

Our major events calendar is internationally recognised as one of the most prestigious and successful calendars in the world, offering a spectacular range of international sporting events year-round for local sporting fans and international sports lovers alike.

Offering world-class sporting precincts – such as the iconic MCG, Etihad Stadium, AAMI Park and the Australian Open's Melbourne Park and Hisense Arena – Melbourne continues to attract the world's top athletes, while many of Australia's leading sporting organisations are based here, including the AFL, Netball Australia, Cricket Australia, Swimming Australia, Athletics Australia and Tennis Australia.

Fuelled by innovation and collaboration

It’s Melbourne’s thriving sporting culture that drives our solid track record in sports performance leadership and innovation across sports management, science and medicine. And it’s our international collaborations that play a critical role in establishing strategic partnerships for local and international organisations – enabling us to achieve new innovations that otherwise would be difficult to develop individually.

As Australia's leading sports hub, our ICT companies produce and supply software tools and packages for the sports industry nationally and internationally – with special strengths in data analytics, wearables, media and marketing, leisure centre and sports club management.
