Port Melbourne Cricket Club

North Port Oval formerly known as TEAC Oval and the Port Melbourne Cricket and Recreation Reserve, is an Australian rules football and cricket stadium located in Port Melbourne, Australia. The capacity of the venue is 12,000 people. The Port Melbourne Football Club plays its home matches at this ground, and the ground will typically host two matches in the first week of VFL finals, as well as both semi-finals and both preliminary finals.

The crowd record of 26,000 was set in 1964 for the VFA Div1 Grand Final between Port Melbourne and Williamstown.

In 2014, the ends of the ground were named the Cook End and the Bonnett End, in honour of Port Melbourne's two champion goalkickers, Fred Cook (1228 goals) and Bob Bonnett (933 goals).[1]

The ground was also one of the key venues for both the 2002 and 2005 Australian Football International Cups.
