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.

We took in the MCG stadium tour on our recent family trip and are really glad that we did. The guide that took us around was one of the MCG member volunteers and REALLY knew his stuff. We had a group of about 15 others and this was of a nice size. As a sports fan, this place really is... More

If you've ever watched a cricket match or AFL match from the MCG you have to go there in person. Unlike some sports stadia, you actually get onto the field itself. The tour guides are all really good. I also recommend the Paddocks Cafe as they serve delicious lunches and cakes..

Loads of great factoids from the tour guide. Brisk, but not too fast paced, then left alone to explore the sports museum at leisure.....which is a gem of an attraction in its own right with plenty of interactive bits for kids to enjoy. Overall a wonderful day out.

Best stadium in Aus. MCG tour is interesting and informative, if you're into cricket, only a small focus on football history.

MCG is a lovely setting for corporate dining with lovely views over the stadium which this week had been prepared for the Aussie Football semis tonight! Good food despite large crowd with friendly attentive staff.

I have been to many sports events at the mcg over many years , it is outstanding . From general public seating to corporate boxes or dining rooms it has got to be the best . Make sure you get a tour which visits the sports museum.

If you've never been to the G to watch a good game of AFL or cricket, with over 90,000 fans then you're missing out. Even if you don't like these 2 sports, it's an experience that you will remember forever. Just do it!
