A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MCG – MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND

With a long history and a total capacity of 100,000, the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is perhaps Australia’s best sports arena. A substantial refurbishment of the stadium’s Northern stands, completed in 2006, elevated the stadium’s prestige even more.

The MCG is part of the world-famous Melbourne Sports Precinct, which also contains Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, and AAMI Park and is just a short walk from Melbourne’s CBD. The stadium predominantly hosts Australian Football and Cricket, however other events including as Soccer, Rugby Union, Rugby League, and concerts are also held there.

The MCG was created in 1853, when the then-15-year-old Melbourne Cricket Club was forced to relocate from its previous location due to the path of Australia’s first steam railway passing through the oval. Since then, the MCG has undergone many substantial renovations, the most recent of which was completed in February 2006.

The new Northern Grandstand is the stadium’s 14th structure, replacing the previous Ponsford, Members, and Olympic Grandstands. With a total capacity of almost 55,000, it provides some of the best amenities and views in the country.

PATHWAY TO MCG, LOCATION AND PARKING

Train: The MCG is adjacent to two railway stations. Jolimont (also known as MCG Station) is located north of the stadium and is a five-minute walk through Yarra Park to the stadium. Take the Hurstbridge or Epping lines from any central business area train station.

The other station is Richmond, which is located on the MCG’s south eastern side. The trip to the pitch is significantly longer, however you may stroll via the Punt Road Oval to the Great Southern Stand side.

From the city, take any train on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston, or Sandringham lines to Richmond station.

Location: Brunton Ave, Richmond VIC 3002, Australia

Parking: On matchdays, parking in Yarra Park is normally offered for AUD20 to AUD30 per vehicle.

Bus: La Trobe University and Elsternwick Station are linked by the 246 bus. The 246 bus stops near the stadium on Punt Road.
