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 found all staff to be helpful and friendly when asking for help and directions. Clean and well maintained facitlities. Very easy to get around (although ground wasn't at full capacity). Reasonable entry costs to get in.

I came here to watch Melbourne v Port Adelaide. The stadium is very big but everything is well signposted and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Went to the Melbourne vs port Adelaide football game. Bargain ticket prices ($5 for kids) and great general admission seats behind the goals. Fantastic for family's. Even drinks prices were reasonable. Fabulous iconic venue.

Watched an AFL game and it was amazing! I think it can hold 100,000 plus which is amazing! The tickets seemed reasonable for the length of the game which was nearly 2 hours long.
