Owner description: The Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust is responsible for managing two of Australia’s premier sports venues – the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium. Both venues are located at Moore Park, only 4km from the central business district and adjacent to the popular bars, restaurants, cinemas and shops of the Entertainment Quarter. The historic Sydney Cricket Ground boasts an impressive list of credentials, encompassing cricket, Australian Rules Football, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Soccer, Baseball, Cycling and major concerts by the Rolling Stones, Billy Joel and Elton John, Michael Jackson, Madonna, the Eagles, Prince, Green Day and the Wave Aid concert. The Sydney Cricket Ground provides the perfect balance between the big crowd atmosphere and intimacy with the on-field action. These aspects, combined with the location of the venue, make visiting the SCG a special experience for all patrons.

SCG has gone downhill since they SQUEEEEZED another 4,000 seats into an already overcrowded venue. Twice the price as Melbourne for a day at the cricket. Overbearing security everywhere. But still one of the World's great cricket grounds

it has a long history and concerts are held there sometimes besides the cricket. The AFL teams play there often in winter. You can park near it but it is a long walk from the car park.

“NZ lost, but it was still a great game and atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

As a New Zealander living in Sydney, you want your team to win. The black caps are not the best cricket team in the world, but the SCG is one of the best cricket stadiums, and NZ played to the venue. Its got to be one of the best stadiums from a spectators point of view.

“Great for cricket lovers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Had a enjoyable and interesting day at the SCG tour. Was great looking at the records and scribbles by former touring teams in changing rooms and on lockers. Was a thrill walking out onto the ground looking back at the old stand. Also good change of scenery to see the Allianz stadium too. Great day for cricket lovers!

“history!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

one of the classic cricket stadiums, great place to watch a game. Ive never seen AFL here so I cannot comment. Only annoyance is that full strength beer is banned, although I can get bourbon and coke (for a lot more!)
