Although Australia is said to be “sports-mad”, football had a long struggle to win a place in the hearts of fans down under. That all changed, however, thanks to the Socceroos, and Australian club football recently set its own record when 55,436 fans attended the 2007 Grand Final at the Telstra Dome Stadium to decide the Australian championship. Melbourne Victory, who were playing on home soil, claimed the honor by defeating Adelaire United 6-0.
