While visiting melbourne it was recommend to catch an Australian rules football game. We are so glad we took the advice. There was never a dull moment in the game. We truly had a blast. I highly recommend it checking it out.

A great game with some amazing players with skills that are incredible. How lucky we are to live in a country with this as one of our national sports.

“Fantastic Spectacle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

If you are in Melbourne, Australia, in the months between May and September be sure to incorporate a trip to the MCG to watch two of the local Australian Football teams play off for Premiership points in the national competition. You may not understand it but you will love it.
AFL football is a game that is enjoyed by all Melbournians, male, female, old, young and families. Everyone has a team and the talk in the footy season always includes something about the football.
The game itself is an intriguing mix of soccer, rugby and handball. It is fast and furious and physically challenging.
The crowd is passionate but well behaved. On days where top teams play there will be upwards of eighty thousand there barracking for their team. The MCG can seat about 100,000 people. Supporters from rival teams sit happily side by side and one must always consume a hot pie with tomato sauce to make the experience authentic.
A great day out.
