RSEA Park Moorabbin

Moorabbin Oval, officially known as RSEA Park, is the training and administrative base of the St Kilda Football Club. The club played at the Linton Street ground between 1965 and 1993 hosting 254 AFL/VFL matches, before moving to Waverley Park and now Marvel Stadium. After a period at Seaford, the AFL club has returned to its spiritual home following a redevelopment of the venue.

In late 2015, St Kilda Football Club announced they would move their training and administration base back to Moorabbin with a $29 million redevelopment to transform it into a community hub. Work started in 2017 and the grandstands were demolished and replaced by a new building as improved lighting. The next stage of the development will include a 1,000-seat grandstand and other facilities, expected to be completed by January 2020. As well as serving as a training and administration base for the Saints, Moorabbin will also host AFLW and AFL pre-season matches, 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). The venue will be known as RSEA Park following a naming-rights agreement with the St Kilda Football Club.

RSEA Park Moorabbin

Moorabbin Oval 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 venue to allow former Baseball team Melbourne Reds to play home games at the venue - including new lighting allowing for night games and additional seating.

The ground previously featured a main grandstand, the G. G. Huggins Stand and another single-level grandstand stretching the wing plus concrete terracing around the remainder of the ground - both of which were removed following the Saints move to Seaford in 2010.
