Melbourne - where sport is a religion

Melbourne & Sport


Melbourne has been voted the Top Sports Events City and the Ultimate Sports City of the decade. An "unparalleled track record reputation" for hosting sporting competitions with versatility, stadia, atmosphere and a local passion for all sports.

 

Melbourne is officially the sporting capital of the world. Melbourne took top spot at the SportBusiness Ultimate Sport City Awards (2016), the longest running rankings of the world's top sports hosts, stealing the title from Berlin, London, New York and Sydney. It's the 4th time Melbourne has taken out the title (2006, 2008 and 2010).

 

Melbourne is home to The Ashes, Australian Rules Football, Australian Tennis Open, Formula 1 Grand Prix, Australian Moto GP and the Melbourne Cup.
