Melbourne Cricket Ground
First opened in 1853, this Melbourne institution is a shrine to sport. Known just as The G, it is used year round for sporting (mainly Aussie Rules football and international cricket) and other events. The MCG is built on the site of the first Australian Rules game and the first Test cricket match between Australia and England (in 1877). The atmosphere at the G with a capacity crowd of around 100,000 is a memorable and very Melbourne experience.
fantastic stadium,great view good facilities,disliked the very english weather,englands very poor performance in front 60,000 poms on boxing day.we will return next time as the overall experiance was great even in defeat so will be even better when we retain the ashes on our next visit!
For the footy fan, there is nothing like a match at the "G". Anzac Day with over 80,000, nothing like it even if you don't understand Aussie Rules and you don't barrack for Collingwood or Essendon. A win by Geelong at the "G" is only topped by a win by Geelong at Kardinia Park.
If your a Melbourne Cricket club member and get behind in your fees, you are not allowed to rejoin, and no circumstances accepted. A little unfair members who had to wait up to 20 years to firstly gain membership.
I liked the atmosphere the most especially the knowledgeable and impartial public. It looks sleek and so beautiful that I can't wait to get back there. There are even certain type of museums and trivia dedicated to the games and players inside which I also liked very much.
After having seen MCG only on TV, I was raring to see my favourite stadium, all of it, live in front of me. Then I got to see MCG in August 2002. Beautiful, absolutely. Thanks to MCG organisers for having given the opportunity to know more about MCG and also for shopping souvenirs etc.
BEST WISHES TO YOU MCG AND MAY YOU ACHIEVE GREAT FAME AND GLORY IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
The atmosphere at the MCG is electric. With the best time to visit being the boxing day test, any one-day inbternational or on Anzac Day when Essendon plays and hopefully defeats Collingwood. The sheer size of the place is exhilerating an when redeveloped completey will hold in excess of 110000 people. When in Melbourne town (the most liveable city in the world) be sure to visit.
I love the MCG because i get to watch the footy upclose and can relax at the same time!! I dont get bugged by anyone cause everyone who is there is to busy doing the same thing as i am which is watching the footy and waiting to see who is going to win which can be sooo exciting!! thats why i want to go back!!
