Queen Elizabeth Oval is an Australian rules football stadium located in Bendigo, Australia. The capacity of the venue is 18,000. In previous times more than 18,000 have flocked into the ground. In 2011 the ground received a massive upgrade, after previously not being up to AFL standards. The upgrade included a new terraced seating section, capable of holding 900 people, new all weather resistant grass was also laid, the lights were upgraded to AFL standard, and a new electronic scoreboard and big screen was installed. On 29 February 2008, at an NAB Challenge Cup game under lights, there was a blackout in the final quarter. The venue also played host to a number of sports in the 2004 junior commonwealth games, it was also the main stadium during the event.
