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 Melbourne runs finished in the MCG and it was a glorious finish! It was incredibly large, well-kept and clean. Wouldn't hesitate to come here if there was a sporting event I'd like to see.

A trip to Melbourne wouldn't be the same without taking in a game at the iconic "G" . One of the best venues in the world. Capacity of more than 100.000 people makes for an incredible experience.

Excellent venue, probably one of the best in the world. Good transport links to CBD & acceptable coffee if you like it in cardboard cups.
