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.

As a Canadian, I am still learning the basics of cricket (and I still don't understand how you can get points and not run ;)) but I loved the tour of the MCG.

Cricket is not actually my thing, but this facility is worth of seeing anyway. They have also good restaurants there.

The MCG is a place where you have to be to experience! The atmosphere is unreal regardless of the sport. A must visit place if you're in Melbourne :)

I have been a few times but the best experience I have ever had at a sporting ground was here for the 2015 State of Origin Game 2 with 91,000 people. Brilliant event and venue

We went on day 4 of the 2013 ashes. The high seats provide an amazing view - you still feel a part of the action with the radio and big screens. Healthy food is available. Amazing spectacle even with the stadium half-full. The MCG tour was also brilliant.

Not a cricket fan but tour very personalized to us. Our guide gave us a summarized version of the rules and comentated while a game was actually in progress. We learned a lot and enjoyed seeing the beautiful facility. Our guide had lots of anecdotes and was very personable. Well worth going.
