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.

A great place to go and watch our national game Aussie Rules. Someone once said that there is not a bad seat at the MCG and I think I agree. We had a great night, food not far from our seats as there is many food stores and plenty of Rest rooms. It is in central Melbourne so easy to... More

In Melbourne? Must visit. No excuses. This place speaks to history, culture, triableness, sublime pleasure, hope, love, passion, pain, color, music, amazement, and of course the greatest sport on earth, Australian football. Would any sane person want to miss that? You could spend your "Melbourne" time at art centers and museums but the greatest feats of human endeavor reside right... More

Had a great informative time, unfortunately due to the sound rehearsals on ground this week (AFL grand final), it was a little hard to hear our guide while outside, she battled through. Would recommend sports lovers to do this tour and if you have time add on a stop to the sports museum as this is well worth a visit... More

Very neat and tidy ground and well maintained. Very proud to be shown this iconic ground. Fantastic arrangements, to be seen to believe. The guided tour took us all over the place, on the ground as well as in the stadium. Here, achievements of cricketers are respected, their names are proudly mentioned, whether they are from India or Pakistan, England,... More

We did the MCG tour and National Sports Museum. Tour guide was very knowledgable. Tough gig for him as he had to compete with grand final weekend entertainment rehearsals and setting up. We did not allow enough time in our day for sports museum. Apart from the large amount of cricket, football and Olympic memorabilia on display, it is interactive... More
