Melbourne Cricket Ground Information

The Melbourne Cricket Ground has been the scene of many great sporting events, as well as many 'firsts' in Australian sporting history.

It is Australia's most significant sporting stadium, dating back to September 1853, when Lieutenant-Governor La Trobe made a grant of the 'Police Paddock' to the Melbourne Cricket Club.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground is the traditional home of Australian sport and following its recent redevelopment of the northern side of the stadium, showcases the finest facilities in the world. This state-of-the-art grandstand adds several new dimensions to the MCG experience, with a fascinating array of sports heritage attractions, artefacts and artwork adorning the various rooms and spaces throughout the ground.

The MCG has seen it all - Olympic and Commonwealth Games, Test cricket, international soccer, rugby union and rugby league. On the last Saturday in September each year, it plays host to Australian Football's incomparable Grand Final.
