NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

Officially known as the St Kilda Cricket Club Ground, the Junction Oval in has been home of three VFL/AFL clubs: St Kilda (1897-1915 & 1918-1941), South Melbourne (1944-1946), and Fitzroy (1897-1966). The ground saw a total of 734 VFL/AFL matches and 6 finals games. The venue was the home base of the Melbourne Football Club for a period of time and has played host to a number of state cricket matches.

Junction Oval

The Junction Oval has undergone many changes in appearance. As well as three main grandstands and undercover standing room, there was a large hill on the outer wing, allowing a record crowd of 46,973 in 1950 to watch St Kilda v Carlton. The 1990's saw the undercover stand behind the goals demolished as well as the reduction of the size of the hill in the outer wing. The old scoreboard which was built in 1954/55 remains in place. The ground currently has a capacity of around 10,000 and includes two grandstands (one of which is closed to the public) and about six rows of seating around the outer. There are plans to convert the ground into the home of Victorian Cricket.
