Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) Reviews
Newest Review: ... close to the centre the MCG is also remembered as the centerpiece stadium of both the 1956 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Throughout the autumn and winter, it serves as the home of Australian Rules Football (the one with the silly tiny shorts), with at least one game-sometimes more-held there each round. The stadium fills to capacity for the AFL Grand Final in late September and quite an atmosphere. What the groundsman make of that is another thing, cricket booted off the square for the first Aussie Rules game as early as April! No less than four Aussie rules sides play their home matches there. No wonder Warn... more

So, now that we don't need the salt any more for the roads lets send it Down Under to rub in Australia's wounds, an impressive test victory at the MCG sealing the return of The Ashes. Not only did Strauss boys turn them over in front of 85,000 home fans but the innings and 157 run victory was the biggest since the days of Jim Laker and uncovered wickets, a very big win indeed, the end of an era for Australian cricket. Melbourne (1998), of course, was the last time England won a test match in Australia before this series and that was a dead rubber, England already 3-0 down. But this was an emphatic test victory you can get to secure the Urn Down Under after a ... Read the complete review

The Melbourne Cricket Ground or MCG is home to both cricket and Australian Rules Football for Melburnians and visitors alike. The stadium is huge by anyone's standards and has a capacity of over 100,000. For Australians, football doesn't refer to soccer, but rather Australian Rules Football - a mish mash of rugby and bare knuckle boxing! Depending on the time of year (March to September) the MCG is home to footie and matches are generally raucous affairs with plenty of fights and action (mostly on the pitch!) In the Australian summer (October to February) the MCG is home to cricket and will be home to one of the Ashes games later in the year. ... Read the complete review

If you have any sort of sporting inclination head for the Melbourne Cricket Ground (better known as MCG or the 'G). From February to September you can go to the Australian Rules - a couple of hours of mayhem with three dozen men in nylon pants and vests, mullets and moustaches kicking the **** out of each other. And from October to January you can catch the cricket - the Boxing Day test and the 1 dayers in Jnauary being the highlight. The ground holds over 100,000 and if you can make a top game you'll be amazed by the atmosphere. The Great Southern Stand alone holds more people than most sporting stadiums in the world (around 50,000). ... Read the complete review
