SIX-time reigning premier Koroit trains and plays at the least favoured venue in the Hampden league, according to The Standard's state of the game survey.
Six of the nine respondents - either coaches or presidents - rated Victoria Park their least preferred place to visit.
One ranked it 10th out of 11 options, another slotted it into fifth place and one ranked it second.
Koroit president Steve Hoy described the results as "surprising", pointing to its club rooms and high-performance facility, which he conceded was not of value to opposition clubs.
"Our club rooms, if you look around the league, they're pretty good," he said.
"The committee 25 or 30 years ago went guarantor and the club paid for those themselves.
"From a viewing point of view...we've got a stand which is never full on your average home game and our booth is probably pretty popular I would've thought."

He said the club had "rectified a few issues" with the Victoria Park playing surface this season and expected a new netball facility to be ready in time for the 2020 season.
"In terms of retaining water and holding water, once we discovered what that was it was a relatively easy fix," Hoy said.
"It was certainly a far better surface this year no doubt. But in the years gone by if we had a rough day it was almost as if there was water coming from beneath.
"There was a bit of an issue beneath so when water was coming from above too it cut up."
Hoy said Koroit was thrilled with its soon-to-be upgraded netball area.
"We will be making some significant inroads there. We'll start construction of a brand netball change rooms and facilities," he said.
"That funding has now progressed where we've pretty much finalised plans and that is about to go out to tender.
"There is no doubt our netball facilities have been lagging but they will start construction best-case now probably early March."
Hoy said all clubs would like to update their facilities but there was no quick fix.
"I think if you look at the average state of some of the facilities around any ground, they certainly need lifting and for the role clubs play in the community, I'd say the majority of clubs around the league deserve better," he said.
"You do need to be proactive in finding grants and some of those take a significant period of time.
"A lot of those grants require 50 per cent contribution or something like that and there aren't too many country football netball clubs out there who have a war chest or cash reserve."
Hoy said Koroit would love to enhance its base, including player change rooms and spectator shelter.
