Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Reviews

  • Greatest sporting ground in the world! Your can feel the history while at your seat. The food and drink options are becoming a lot better. Used to be fried food and cheap beer, but new vendors are staying to change this up. Best seats are either level 2 or towards the back of level 1. Once you start getting to level 3 it can be hit or miss. Simple stadium to get to. Richmond railway station stops right out the front.

  • Got a chance to visit this stadium during the Australia Vs England t20 cricket game in February, the stadium is an absolute delight. The capacity of the stadium is over 100,000 and is one of the largest stadiums in the world. Had a great time and the facilities and view is top notch. Highly recommend watching a game here

  • An amazing stadium. Built for 100,000 and copes with the number exceedingly well! Views are good all around, plenty of pretty decent food, beer and coffee choices. Also houses the museum of sport and is surrounded by a beautiful park. It's a short tram ride from the CBD. This is a wonderful example of sport being integrated with city life. Just be careful if you're an England cricket fan, you're likely to see some excellent cricket here (and the locals will let you know constantly!)

  • Always worth a visit however the Stadium is showing its age and is being chased by Adelaide and Perth . The MCG wicket is of great concern and the poor press during and after the Boxing Day test must be followed up urgently. The players and officials must be consulted and action taken before the Indian series later this year. What happened to the sky walk around the top of the stands? (as mentioned during my visit in March 2017.) Great museum.

  • Nice to walk around it. I'm used to the North American sporting experience and frankly the food services during events are incredibly short on choice and poor on quality. Also would be nice to have a family friendly section with no alcohol or swearing. Current culture means I'm never taking my kid to events here. People go less interested in the sport and more interested in getting messy.
