First Game - Round 9, 1898 vs Carlton
Last Game - Round 9, 2005 vs Carlton

Originally home to Carlton, Fitzroy, Hawthorn and North Melbourne all had stints as tenants at the ground - and even the Demons were forced to play low drawing home games there in the early 2000's.

During the early 1900's the ground was known as Princes Oval.

In 2004 chairman Paul Gardner suggested that Optus Oval might become the permanent training base for the club, but nothing materialised of his plan.

Melbourne were the last club to win a premiership match at the venue, in Round 9, 2005.
