Canberra's home of Australian Football and cricket has a close tie to Australia's home of AFL and cricket, the MCG. It is the Jack Fingleton Scoreboard, which was the original scoreboard at the MCG. The venue is the Canberra base of the GWS Giants who play several home games there each season. A number of upgrades have improved facilities at the ground over time and it now has a capacity of almost 15,000 and lights to cater for night matches.
