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.

This was my third cricket game at the G and it is a proper sports ground. The seating and view of the pitch is excellent, the facilities are excellent and it is minutes walk from the centre of town. I have never taken the tour but by all accounts it is an excellent look at Australia's premier sporting ground steeped... More

Went to an afl game with the kids. The food is way too expensive. If you need to feed the family this is not the place to do it.

The MCG is very easy to get to and is very interesting to look around if you like stadiums and sport history. We went for the tour and it could have lasted far longer as there is so much to see and a wealth of history to take in. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and obviously had a passion... More

We visited for a concert and it was loud!!!! Great venue as can have fireworks and fit a huge amount of people. The huge screens were fantastic as we didn't miss a thing. The female toilet lines were huge (of course) & the alcohol lines even bigger! Unfortunately there are no gluten free or vegetarian options when trying to find... More

Watching AFL at this iconic ground was the best experience of our whole trip to Melbourne. Our seats were very close and our view uninterrupted- only problem we couldn't get to our teams end of the ground.

MCG is a great venue easy to get to if staying in the city it took us about 25 mins walk from Flinders station to reach the ground. Facilities are great and the atmosphere in the evening we were there was fantastic, the Sri Lankan's know how to make some noise. Food and drink was okay at prices you would... More

Has a reputation for being a world class venue and did not disappoint. You are always close to a bar and a toilet wherever you are in the stadium, seats are a decent size rather than squashed in like sardines. Atmosphere is great. Staff are relaxed and service orientated. Infrastructure is amazing, we travelled back to the CBD on a... More
