The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is more than simply one of the world’s great sporting arenas; for over 150 years it has been Melbourne’s heartbeat. Here, giants have lived up to a nation’s hopes, heroes have walked the corridors, and moments of suspense have been watched by millions around the country, and the world. To step inside the MCG is to be energized by a spirit of greatness.

Only minutes from the heart of the city, with underground parking and in easy reach of public transport, the people’s ground is famous for its convenience and accessibility. Centrally located, there are many hotel and transportation options available to attendees.
