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.

The MCG is a place where you have to be to experience! The atmosphere is unreal regardless of the sport. A must visit place if you're in Melbourne :)

I have been a few times but the best experience I have ever had at a sporting ground was here for the 2015 State of Origin Game 2 with 91,000 people. Brilliant event and venue

We went on day 4 of the 2013 ashes. The high seats provide an amazing view - you still feel a part of the action with the radio and big screens. Healthy food is available. Amazing spectacle even with the stadium half-full. The MCG tour was also brilliant.

Not a cricket fan but tour very personalized to us. Our guide gave us a summarized version of the rules and comentated while a game was actually in progress. We learned a lot and enjoyed seeing the beautiful facility. Our guide had lots of anecdotes and was very personable. Well worth going.

Had a great time watching the footy. Always a great ground with plenty of atmosphere. The views from any part of the ground are absolutely great. Visit the sports museum if possible as it is filled with so much memorabilia and history.

We visited Lords earlier this year which was a great experience. And we really enjoyed the tour of the Melbourne Cricket Club today. Our guide Pam was excellent, thank you. Recommend this tour to anyone interested in cricket and the history of this ground.

It was an amazing experience going on the MCG Tour. If you are a sports lover, it is a must. You learn all about this venue and experience the player dressing rooms, the player boxes and the hallowed turf of the MCG. You will also experience the MCC members area that you would not see unless you are a member.... More

As any Melbourne will tell you, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, better known as "the G" is the mecca of Australian sport. Capacity is near 100000 in a large area. Great viewing spots for the sports played there, AFL football, and cricket Also houses the Museum of Sport which in itself is most worthy of a separate visit. The G has... More
