bigaitch's review of Melbourne Stadium

Running track surrounding the pitch = bad news. Other than the main stand, none of the spectator facilities are raised, and other than the portable terraces behind the goal the view is rather distant. Behind the goal, the view is very close up, but unfortunately ruined by the attitude of some of the inhabitants and their antics, coupled with some of the most incompetent stewards going. This ground is not a patch on New Writtle Street. To be honest, it's not a patch on Sesame Street.


Miles from the town and the station - although a good local bus service exists, and a large car park is present.


Main stand, very good, raised and uninterrupted view of action. Far side, low seated area with standing in front of it (!) which renders the seating behind redundant - and distant from the pitch. Behind the goals, see previous entry.


Toilets are clean and plentiful.

Food & Drink

Food is generally available from mobile burger wagon, the standard is pretty good and varied. The bar area is also good and has decent selection.

Police & Stewards

Stewards are woeful, just basically supporters wearing fluorescent jackets over their replica shirts and ignoring things going on in front of them (spitting at opponents goalkeeper for example).


Largely uncovered ground with an athletics pitch. What do you think?
