The Mighty MCG
The MCG is undoubtedly the home of football. Since 1858 Australian Rules Football has played at the ground. Since the beginning of the VFL in 1897, the MCG has hosted close to 3000 top level games of Football.
Melbourne were the original home tenant of the ground but was joined by Richmond (in 1965), North Melbourne (in 1985), Essendon (in 1992), Collingwood (in 1994 but full-time since 2000) and Hawthorn (since 2000).
Women's AFL exhibition games were played at the ground between 2013 and 2016, but since the AFLW has started in 2017, there has yet to be a game held at the MCG.
The first AFLW game at the MCG was the Prelim Final of Season 6 in early 2022.
