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.

This was a 'must' experience for us. The online ticket purchasing was straight forward. We found our seats easily and the staff were helpful. I thought the food prices were reasonable. The big screen and view of the game was great from the third tier...More

I went to watch the Socceroos vs Brazil game and it's not ideal for soccer as the seats are too far back. But it's a hugely impressive stadium nonetheless and deserves it's world famous status.

Found the entire tour very boring. Wasn't allowed to click photos as the tour leader would just keep moving without waiting. No taxi stand in the stadium and u would struggle to get a taxi easily here to move around.

We went to the MCG to see our first ever AFL match, Swans vs Tigers....what a venue, only half full, 57,000 people, but was awesome, especially since the Swans won ! Easy to get to, easy entry and exit, great day !
