Melbourne is a notable sporting location as the host city for the 1956 Summer Olympics games, the first Olympic Games ever held in Australia and the southern hemisphere, along with the 2006 Commonwealth Games. In recent years, the city has claimed the SportsBusiness title "World's Ultimate Sports City". Melbourne has also been dubbed the "Sporting Capital of the World". The city is home to the National Sports Museum, which until 2003 was located outside the members pavilion at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and reopened in 2008 in the Olympic Stand.

Australian rules football and cricket are the most popular sports in Melbourne and also the spiritual home of these two sports in Australia and both are mostly played in the same stadia in the city and its suburbs. The first ever official cricket Test match was played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in March 1877 and the Melbourne Cricket Ground is the largest cricket ground in the world. The first Australian rules football matches were played in Melbourne in 1859 and the Australian Football League is headquartered at Docklands Stadium. Nine of its teams are based in the Melbourne metropolitan area and the five Melbourne AFL matches per week attract an average 40,000 people per game. Additionally, the city annually hosts the AFL Grand Final.

The city is also home to several professional franchises in national competitions including the Melbourne Storm (rugby league), who play in the NRL competition, Melbourne Victory (football/soccer) and also Melbourne Heart who play in the A-league, netball team Melbourne Vixens who play in the trans-Tasman trophy ANZ Championship. The Melbourne Tigers are Melbournes only team in the National Basketball League although there is talk of a second Melbourne team for the 2011/2012 season. The new rugby union Super 15 license was given to Melbourne to start a team at the beginning of the 2011 Super 15 season, the team most likely to represent Melbourne are the Melbourne Rebels.

Melbourne is home to the three major annual international sporting events in the Australian Open (tennis), Melbourne Cup (horse racing), and the Australian Grand Prix (Formula One). It was announced in November 2008 that the AOC that the city was considering potential bids for either the 2024 or 2028 Summer Olympics.

I absolutely love Melbourne. I had the pleasure of visiting the city back in 2005 and fell in love with the place. I'd love to go back at some point. I could definately live there, the vibe of Melbourne is fantastic. It feels like a European city but with loads of skyscrapers and the people are incredibly friendly.
