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.

The MCG tour is also a great thing to do on non-game days. Well laid out and well signed inside. Food a bit pricey so take your own if possible. Great atmosphere at BBL cricket and AFL matches. Good people watching!

Don't forget to visit the Library whenever you are at the MCG. Whenever I am there for a game, I always pop in to browse and read while waiting for the game to start.

I live in Melbourne, but have travelled all over the world and seen many iconic stadia - Maracana (Brazil) Wembly (UK) Berlin, Finland, New York ,etc. and have attended quite a few Olympics, including Melbourne in 1956.

Don't book cheaper tickets high up if you suffer from vertigo! The guided tour with afternoon tea is a must if you are a cricket fan.
