What an amazing ground, the atmosphere is great. The MCG was very welcoming, during the hot day giving us water, lollies, ice blocks and sunscreen. You will pleasantly see that it isn't expensive to go to the cricket, especially for families. Another bonus was you...More

Another Melbourne bucket list entry. A great carnival atmosphere at the greatest sporting cathedral in the world. Book early as tickets can be hard to get especially if England playing.

Ticked another thing of the bucket list. The atmosphere is absolutely brilliant. Unfortunately the ground isn't as modern as many others like the Adelaide Oval but definitely well worth the trip
