From April to October, most of Melbourne can be found at either the Melbourne Cricket Ground or Etihad Stadium watching the AFL (Australian Football League). Australian football (referred to by Melburnians simply as 'the footy') is not an easy sport to understand, but the games are fast-paced and packed with impressive athletic feats by players. In Australia there are more fans of AFL than of any other sport, and going to a game, especially on a Friday or Saturday night, is a real spectacle.
