Owner description: 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 will also host 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'd never been to an AFL game, first of all i spent 10 minutes just trying to figure out the weird soccer/footbal oval field. but after a few beers i was just as happy and cheery as the rest of the folks there. was a great game.

“We'll worth a visit, even if you are not into sport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 NEW

We were escorted by Volunteer Les who was a warm, friendly and knowledgeable gentleman who was a font of knowledge about the history and inner workings of the MCG.
The tour takes you to parts of the MCG not normally seen by spectators and is fascinating.
I would recommend it to any visitor to Melbourne.

“Melbourne Cricket Ground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 NEW

The MCG in September is the most exiting place to be, the last Saturday in September the AFL grand final takes place and the whole town gets involved. You can tour this venue any time of the year and the spoting memrobilia has to be seen to believe.
