THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Melbourne600Lakeside Stadium is the 12,000-capacity home of South Melbourne, who play in the top level of the Victorian league system, one step below the A-League. The ground was built on the old site of the Lake Oval, which was used for Australian rules football. However, in 1995 South Melbourne were forced out of their old Middle Park ground because of the construction of the Melbourne Grand Prix circuit, and Lakeside was built as their new home. In 2008 the ground underwent another major redevelopment to accommodate an athletics track and make it the centre of the Victorian Institute of Sport.
