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.

Sydney Cricket Grounds serve as the home field for the Swans of the AFL. Went there today to see them play the Lions. It's an odd stadium, seemingly made up of a patchwork of inconsistent updates and additions. But, it's a good place to see AFL. We started very low to the field, just outside the 50m line and then...

There's lots of seating and everyone that we encountered was very nice and helpful. They had done it up and it looks really nice! There's lots of bathrooms and lots of places to get something to eat and drink!!! Lots of signage and lots of helpful people around if you're not sure of where you're going.

Don't do the tour if your are expecting to see anything but traditions. Cricketers are generally such a superstitious bunch that they don't want to change the facilities and prefer to walk the same steps as those before them. You won't find the latest of technologies. That said you will appreciate the history that lives on in the old buildings... More

We came here for the opening round of the AFL season and found staff were unhelpful or simply uninformed. We were given conflicting directions on how to get to our stand, signage was either confusing or non existent, food was very expensive (but then it is in most sporting venues), information on travel was very scarce and we had to...
