Some have said that Victoria is the "sports capital of the world"and it is hard to argue when this state hosts the AFL Grand Final, the Cricket's Boxing Day Test Match, Australian Open Tennis - Asia Pacific's Grand Slam event, Melbourne Cup Carnival and motorsports Formula 1 Grand Prix and Moto GP.
If there is a "centre of universe" for a sport, then Victoria is it. Melbourne is home to ten AFL teams, the games administration and of course the Grand Final at the MCG. Not to be out done, NRL Premiers The Storm and Super Rugby new comers The Rebels also call Melbourne home so it's hard not to find something in the sporting calendar to get you excited!!
