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.

I won't pretend that I am easy to impress. Myself and my husband are picky with what is worth our time and attention when we are on holidays. The MCG I have to admit I was skeptical about, I'm not a huge sports fan and wondered what the allure would be of walking around a sports field. The tour is... More

This is a beautiful stadium. You get to see areas of the stadium that you wouldn't ordinarily see. The sites include: famous MCC Long Room, MCC Library (founded in 1873), MCG Tapestry, Player change rooms,Cricketers’ viewing room, Ron Casey Media Centre, Portrait of Sir Donald Bradman and Sachin Tendulkar and the City Terrace with views of Melbourne’s skyline. It was... More

Quite a few things to see outside around the MCG without entering. Upon entry, the crowds move quickly as it's easy to find your allocated seating and there are staff around to help if required. Toilets are kept very clean throughout the football match, and there is plenty of food to purchase if you wish.

We went to the MCG in early April to see a match between Melbourne and Carlton. Having been in many US stadiums, I can say that MCG was wonderful for viewing the playing field and for getting to one section without undue difficulty. The public transportation to and from the stadium was also very impressive and, although there were 40,000... More

Amazing 90000 capacity stadium, great view from anywhere you sit. We were lucky enough to be sitting pitchside, row g where we could almost touch the players. Great seats, easily accessible to food, drinks and toilets and entry and exit to the ground was no trouble at all despite the 65000 that were there for the match. Free Wifi that... More

My partner and I are keen cricket fans and we had to pay homage to the biggest cricket ground in Australia. You have to see for yourself how BIG it really is! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. He was also so patient with stragglers (mobility impaired). Later we went to see the Sports Museum, which covered all... More

The MCG Tour was not the slick well managed affair you get at football stadiums in Europe and in many ways all the better for it. We were shown round by a member of the MCG who was a lovely character who took us all over the stadium with no pre-planned route just went where he felt people would be... More
