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.

I attended an AFL game here recently (the first ever for me). The day was brilliant, well organised, very well promoted and attended by Swans fans and an excellent arena.
We enjoyed the event and adored the old buildingd that are well preserved plus noted a significant redevelopment project being undertaken in the stands.
We then ordered some food.....
Fast food always presents a challenge, however the pizza purchased did not resemble the normal flavour combinations which was sold at above normal retail prices. It was cold, doughy , tasted uncooked and could not be removed from the cardboard(yes it appeared glued) - plus it was provided by a prime Pizza company which was also a supporter of the game.
When a wonderful facility such as the famous cricket ground provides food it may be appropriate to rate the food. Just a warning- take your own nibbles or order a pie!

Thank you for your comment. We have notified the caterers. In future, if food is cold or under-cooked, please take it back to the outlet for their action.

Have been to the SCG many times over several decades. Most recent visit included members' tickets and access to the members areas - very impressive. Whether, cricket, rugby or football, it's a wonderful arena and environment.

I attended the football today and found the sound system not easy to hear.The sound was muffled. Plus it is a bit rich to pay $20 for parking -when it takes you 50 minutes to get out of the car park -please look at the logistices of this area when big games are on.Not everyone can use public transport.

Not just for cricket either! We watched the Sydney Swans AFL team play and it was a great experience.

Would be great if they hadn't turned it, like most other cricket grounds, into a cauldron in hot weather.
