December 26 2013. I had lived like a hermit for the best part of 12 months to get the money together to travel to Australia and watch the mighty England thrash the Aussies at Melbourne Cricket Ground Despite the fact that England Cricket officially died this day, I loved my day at the MCG and even if you don't know what a silly mid off Yorker is, the MCG is a must see in Melbourne.The entire complex is like stepping into a the history of Australian Sports achievements which , let's face it , is a very short history.Melbourne is one of my favourite places and everything seems to be within reasonable walking distance but as you approach it , you get the feeling you are about to enter the centre of Melbourne's universe.I doubt there is a bad seat in the house and the cost of liquid refreshments are reasonable. Additionally service is quick and efficient ( Wembley Stadium take note) . in fact the only thing that ruined my day was another inept performance from the England Cricket team who couldn't get any worse ( but they did)So , even if you have never seen or played cricket, the MCG tour is a Melbourne must. Just don't expect any sympathy if you support the 3 Lions
This was a once in a lifetime experience to see a passionate crowd of 87,000 cricket fans in the Mecca of all cricket stadiums. There was nothing to dislike :-)
Great footy match between geelong Vs Richmond. Its just a walking distance from Flinder street station or richmond station.
The museum and stadium tour is well worth the time and money. Strange to learn that the MCG attract more Aussie Footy fans than cricket fans Even though Eng lost embarrassingly to Aus in the opening match of the ICC World Cup it didn't spoil the excitement of the big match atmosphere. Or spoil our day (too much).
Was there for the India vs South Africa world cup 2015 match. The ground was well managed considering a packed capacity of 100k people. Food menu was excellent too (including some Indian snacks). Well maintained and managed cricket ground. Awesome experience !!
The MCG is a great venue. I've been to several AFL games and a soccer game at the MCG, and the atmosphere is great, public transport to and from is also good.
