UPDATE INFO >

Moorabbin Oval, sometimes referred to as Moorabbin Reserve or simply Linton Street, is the former home of the St Kilda Football Club who played at the ground between 1965 and 1993. In that time, the AFL/VFL club hosted 254 matches at the venue, before moving to Waverley Park and now to Etihad Stadium. The Saints continued to use Moorabbin as their training and administration base until 2010 when they moved to Seaford.

The venue started life as a VFA venue for the Moorabbin Football Club in 1952 before the local Council negotiated with several VFL clubs to move to there. Eventually, a deal was struck with the St Kilda Football Club and a 75-year lease was signed. Facilities were improved with the construction of a new grandstand and capacity was up around the 50,000 mark. The Saints first home game against Collingwood in 1965 attracted 51,370 fans - a record attendance which stands today. When the ground hosted its final game in 1993, the capacity was around 27,000.

Improvements were made to the ground when the Saints relocated home games to Waverley, while other improvements were made to allow former Baseball team Melbourne Reds to play home games at the venue - this included new lighting allowing for night games and new seating.

The ground has a main grandstand, the G. G. Huggins Stand which still stands today and contains three levels while it used to have another single-level grandstand stretching the wing and terracing around the remainder of the ground - both of which were removed following the Saints move to Seaford.

In late 2015, it was announced that the St Kilda Football Club would move their training and administration base back to Moorabbin with the ground to undergo a $29 million redevelopment to transform it into a community hub. The G. G. Huggins Stand will be redeveloped and a new pavilion built as well as improved lighting and a second playing arena. As well as serving as a training and administration base for the AFL club, Moorabbin will also host home games for its proposed VFL team from 2018, as well as the home base of the Sandringham Dragons (TAC Cup), Southern Football Netball League (SFNL) and the South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL). Work is expected to be completed in mid-2017.
