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 tour was fantastic. The venue itself is massive. Great atriums and hidden background roads and passageways. We were shown... More

As AFL members, my wife and I like to extend our enjoyment of AFL matches by dining in the AFL members dining room. The meals are restaurant quality, prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is great. You must try this dining experience.

Attended a function in the museum and was very impressed by the memorabilia and I am not a huge sports fan. Quite nostalgic.

I'm anything but a sports fan, but was fascinated and quite excited by our visit to the MCG. Even my 6 year old kept up with the tour group and showed interest! There's something about the history and grandeur of the place, perhaps it's the amazing sporting achievements and social history that have taken place here, that create an impression.... More

I've been coming to this ground for most of my life to watch AFL games (even before it was AFL!) As a sporting venue, you cannot go past the atmosphere and out of the many amazing venues in Melbourne, it's my favourite by far. My kids have also done the MCG and loved that! Well worth a tourist visit for... More

It is the largest sporting venue in Australia with a seating capacity of around 100,000. Australians lovre their sport and some might say they worship it. This and the surrounding sporting facilities is the sports center of Australia. Cricket and AFL (Australian Rules Football) are the main sports played here. Some formats of cricket draw big crowds but the largest... More

There are quite a few reasons for you to visit the Melbourne Cricket Ground, known locally as the MCG - or simply "The Gee". It is a huge sports stadium, seating almost 100,000 people, where people enjoy the winter spectacle of Australian Rules Football (AFL, the "footy") or summer Cricket at state, national and international level. Rock concerts are held... More

MCG is a massive stadium, I watched some games in there and all them were great. It's located in Richmond, which is next to Melbourne's downtown. MCG hold every year dozens of AFL games. MCG is one of the bests arenas in Australia. If you're in Melbourne you should visit it or if you have plenty of time you should... More
