Melbourne without football is unthinkable. See for instance our reflection on the place of football in our newsletter from March 2003.

Note: Football or Footy in southern states of Australia has meant just one thing for over a century - Australian Rules Football. In recent years with the advance of globalisation and commercialism, serious amounts of money are being spent to promote soccer (a game codified after Australian Rules) as Football. In the meantime, if you hear a Melbournian talking about football they are almost certainly referring to what White Hat believes to be the finest team game in the world, rather than the most widely played and followed one.
