HOME GROUNDS: Royal Park & Madeline Street

The Madeline Street ground was the city's first purpose built football ground. The Carlton Football Club had spent the considerable amount of £300 on its construction. The football ground was located in the Melbourne University precint and it was used from August 1876 until the end of the 1877 season when the Roman Catholic collegiate suddenly withdrew their permission. Madeline Street which ran from Victoria Street to the intersection of College Crescent and Keppel Street, was renamed Swanston Street in March 1925.
