In 1963, Melbourne and Geelong went on an end-of-season trip to the US together and played a couple of games. The first in Honolulu and the second in San Francisco.

The first game was fairly friendly, and played on a converted NFL ground. A bit small, with goals in opposite corners.

The second was played on a field far, far bigger than the MCG, and by this team the teams and officials (for various reasons) hated each other and it turned into a regular biffo.
