We went to an AFL night match. I thought it was really well organised, not busy and easy to find your seats. Pleasantly surprised that there were no silly long queues for toilets, food or drink either. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

As far as stadiums go this not bad at all. The service by all staff was good. I was sitting on the 1st tier and a good view of the game.

We went to watch St Kilda play North Melbourne (The Roos). It was our first ever Australian rules football game - and we really enjoyed it. However, the stadium impressed us.

All queues were very long and there was no counter catering for pre-purchased tickets. Were told we had to queue with those who were purchasing. There were... More

Having watched AFL games at Ethiad since its inception I really feel it lacks atmosphere compared to MCG I am not quite sure if the closed roof has anything to do with but I can't put my finger on it but always leave the ground feeling like the crowd doesn't participate like other grounds as well.

Our first visit to Etihad Stadium was for the Socceroos v Greece game. Although the game was not the best, the atmosphere in the stadium was great. It was a cool wet Melbourne night so we rugged up to walk to the stadium from the hotel we were staying at very close by. When we got to the stadium it... More

Good food and bar locations, with ease of access to all public transport. One of the better locations to watch sport.
