Football in Melbourne

Now could anything ever be more popular in Melbourne than AFL,surely not Football. The Herald Sun's Alison Coster reports.

THE round-ball game continues to drive into Melbourne footy heartland.
In certain metropolitan pockets of Melbourne, junior AFL clubs are being outnumbered by soccer teams
In the Greater Dandenong area, there are only 16 Dandenong and Springvale teams in the Dandenong and District Junior AFL, down from 32 in 2003.
By contrast, junior soccer is exploding with almost 60 teams and 1001 registered players.

Who would have thought it. Where will be in ten years?
