Ikon Park hosted the 2018 AFLW Grand Final between the Western Bulldogs and Brisbane Lions.

Australian Football League side Carlton is planning to turn Ikon Park into the home of AFL Women's football after receiving A$15M ($10.6M) of federal government investment, according to Jon Ralph of the HERALD SUN. Carlton President Mark LoGiudice spoke of the club’s "ambitious plans" after receiving A$15M from the federal government to turn Ikon Park into a "high-performance hub" of women’s football. Not only will it house the club's AFL, Victorian Football League and AFLW teams under one roof, it will "incorporate a women's coaching education hub and a sports injury prevention and research centre." LoGiudice also announced Ikon signed up for a further five seasons as naming rights sponsor of the ground (HERALD SUN, 2/10).
