Touring Melbourne

On Monday, Luke and I did a tour of Etihad Stadium. It is a stadium which is mostly used for Australian Rules Football (kind of like rugby), but they also use it for concerts, bit soccer events, and loads of other sporting events. The stadium can change its shape depending on the event, and can seat up to 76,000. The tour was really good. Because they were setting up for an event we weren't allowed to go onto the field or go into the changing rooms, but that allowed us to go to something far more interesting, the executive boxes. Once a company pays their fee for a private box, they are allowed to decorate it however they like, and decorate it they do! We went into some seriously memorabeliazed boxes. One in particular had not only gotten in a marble bar and put their family seal on their seats, but they also had so much movie and sporting memorabelia that we couldn't even capture it all with photos. The tour was only an hour and because it was apparently 'closed off' in some sections it was only $8 instead of $16!
