    Great history
    As a cricket nut who loves the history of the game this is a must place to visit when you are in Sydney. The history of the ground is so interesting and the whole tour was fantastic. From the baggy green worn by Sir Don Bradman and another by Steve Waugh to sitting in the Captains change room chair in the Australian dressing room. I don’t think you could out a price on that experience. The only negative was that the Sydney Swans were training on the ground so we were unable to walk on the turf, but there is always next time.
    Thank you for the review of the SCG Tour. We are proud of the venue and the heritage of this iconic sports ground. Our museum does have some key cricket and sports memorabilia on display including a Don Bradman Baggy Green. Best wishes and thanks for visiting the SCG.

    The Old Girl is Still Kicking!
    Been a few years since my last visit and it was my first one day match for close to 20 years. But very hard to knock back an offer to go to a corporate box? A great experience, friendly staff, great viewing spot and full-strength beer on offer, what more do you want? I first visited the SCG with my dad in the 60's and made many visits thru the 70's, 80's &90's. As a sport location it has evolved & changed over the decades but still gets the job done. A world class facility and having been to the first day/night match in 1978, it was great to go to the most recent with the same opposition, the West Indies and the same result! An Aussie win!!
    Thank you for the positive review of the SCG and the match you recently attended. The connection you have with the ground is special. Being at the first day night match in 1978 and to see the lights come on would have been incredible experience. Best wishes always.

Amazing behind the scenes tour. Fantastic for a cricket tragic like myself. Tour guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about cricket you could see he loved his job.

We booked seats at the top of the Brewongle Stand, they were all covered in bird poop. All the seats in the area were the same. We paid good money for those seats, disgraceful!

Having seen some Sheffield Shield cricket at the SCG in 2020, we had the opportunity to return, and were able to watch couple of hours on Day 1 and just over an hour on Day of the match against Tasmania.

Many things were the same, free entrance, just the two stands open for spectators and the crowd on both days was around the 200 mark.

The most important discovery was that 6 oysters were $22, the cheapest we had come across up to that point during our stay in Sydney, so Mrs FB indulged !

Coffees were $4.50 each, a can of beer at $9, most hot foods were priced between $17-18, and a ham and cheese baguette was $11. A box of chips were $5.50. The SCG is a cashless venue so the credit card fees and exchange rate costs on my two coffees will probably be greater than the costs of the two drinks !

As for the cricket, NSW dominated, and we saw opener Daniel Hughes get his hundred. For anyone interested, fuller reviews of the cricket can be found on my blog, Fatbear's Sporting Diairies

Beautiful cricket ground with a couple of old stands still. Easy to enter and leave with friendly, helpful staff. Plenty of cover during rain. Plenty places to view cricket close up.

This is a fantastic ground to watch a cricket match, especially a fast-paced T20 match. Easy to get to with the new light rail service connecting to Central Railway Station it is a great place to enjoy. Do beware the pricing at the outlets, they know how to charge.

We booked a tour of SCG for my cricket obsessed family and I have to admit, even I, with very little interest in/ knowledge of the game, really enjoyed the tour.

Our tour of the stadium included a visit to the commentators box/ room, the players locker rooms, stands and was filled with interesting trivia about games and players which made it really interesting.

Highly recommend!
