The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It also hosted the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

To start with, this is one attraction in Melbourne which shouldn't be missed. The MCG or simply The 'G' as it is known is probably one of the oldest and finest Cricket grounds in the World. As we got in the stadium for the tour,...More

The MCG is Australia's largest sports stadium. The people of Melbourne are huge sports and concert fans and have filled the MCG many times for a range of events. The Sports Museum and an MCC Tour are must do's for visitors.

What a great stadium. Do yourself a favour & choose a good football match to soak up all of the atmosphere that the MCG has to offer. Do a tour of their museum whilst you are there. Don’t forget to try an Australian meat pie,...More

A great experience, amazing to see a football match from the stands, get there early as security is lengthy, but well worth it.

It was many years ago that I went to an AFL game and the MCG. It was electrifying - so many people and so much noise. Wasn't difficult to get to and from and in and out of the grounds. All good.

Unless and until you are a passionate cricket lover no point visiting MCG. It’s a much hyped up tour. Over rated I must say!
