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.

Had a great time visiting the G with the family for an AFL game. Convenient access from the train line and into the grounds. Lots of food options which are reasonably priced. Would recommend the AFL members section as it is less crowded.

The second time I visited MCG and was still amazing. Haven't been to a match here but must be excellent on a match day. Will do that some time! On the bucket list🙂

We did the tour and learnt so much and it was fun. Then we visited the Sports Museum and loved it so much we left to have lunch and then went back. So many hours worth of learning

This stadium is enormous. It seats 100,018 people at full capacity and is well maintained. AFL fans are hardcore but friendly. Food choices seem a bit limited but tasty.

It was an excellent tour. The guide we had was peter. He was very informative and passionate about the grounds. I am not a real footy follower but enjoy the tour very much. The museum is excellent.
