Those interested in attending a match at the MCG can either catch a train to Richmond station, or you can walk, as it is only a 20-minute walk from Flinders Street Station.

Amongst locals, the Melbourne Cricket Ground is popularly known as the ‘G’ and is one of the most iconic structures in Australia.

Apart from cricket, the MCG also hosts a number of athletic and international sporting events. In 2006, the MCG was the primary stadium of the Commonwealth Games and the MCG was a primary venue for the Olympics in 1956.

    • Hi Tracy,

      You are in the Southern Stand, top level, about 11 rows from the front of the balcony. Not sure how the seats are allocated from the aisle. Enter from Gate 4. Although there is a ‘roof’, it’s so high up that there isn’t much rain cover. Make sure to rug up!

      Enjoy the Grand Final!

      Kind regards,

    • Hi Brian,

      Your seat should be under the roof line of Level 2. However, even though there is a roof overhead in some sections of the ground, patrons cannot be guaranteed protection from the elements. All seating bays at the MCG begin with Row A closest to the fence and continue back to Row Z, before reverting to Row AA, BB, CC and so on.


  • Hi, I’ve purchased tickets for the mcg in Q4 level 4 Row T. These were the best l could find after 10 minutes of going on sale. I’m wondering how many more rows are behind row T towards the back wall. Curious to know how far back it is.
    Thanks Julie

    • Hi Alvin,

      There are ramps up to the entry level for those in wheelchairs or those who cannot navigate stairs. There are also internal ramps and lifts to the upper levels in some areas. Make contact with ground staff who will be able to direct you to the lifts.

      Best regards,

  • Hello the seat finder is not working to show me where we are sitting for the collingwood and melbourne game on the 12/6/17. The seats are for BAY: GA ROW: GA SEAT: 64 and the other one is the same except the SEAT: 65.

    Can someone let me know where these seats are please.

    • Hi Diane,

      I have contacted the MCG twice now advising them that their seat finder is not working, no response as yet.

      Sounds like you are in General Admission which typically varies from match to match, depending on which teams are playing. Often GA is on the top level (L3) of the Southern Stand. So enter from gates 5 or 6.

      Kind regards,

  • Hello
    I have booked tickets through Ticketek for Boxing Day this year.
    I’m in a wheelchair and my older brother is my companion.

    The information on our tickets shows
    Olympic Stand Level 1
    Gate 3 Level 1
    Bay M51 – Row NN – Seats 1 and 2

    Are these seats undercover?
    Toilet facilities close by?

    • Hi Roger,

      There are accessible toilets located here:
      Level 1 – M57 and outside the stadium at Light Tower 2
      Level 1 – Changing Places facility inside Gate 3 entrance. Patrons require an MLAK Key to access this facility. Patrons can obtain a MLAK Key from MCG event staff at Gate 3.
      Other regular toilets are also located near to your seats.

      It doesn’t appear that your seats are undercover. I also note that you will need to go down some stairs to reach your seats. So if you did require a wheelchair spot, you should ring Ticketek’s Accessible Seating Hotline on 1300 665 915.

      Kind regards,

  • HI

    The seat finder is not working for the mcg website
    I would like to know what the M28 bay is like ( for the brazil V argentina match ) and how do the seats number from when looking at the field?
    Is Bay M28 also were the players come out of?


    • Hi Natalie,

      Here is a seating plan of the match you are referring to. Unfortunately it doesn’t go into the minutia of seating numbers; but as for the rows, all seating bays at the MCG begin with Row A closest to the fence and continue back to Row Z, before reverting to Row AA, BB, CC and so on.

      Bay M28 has a player entrance section, although I’m not sure which team will come out of the bay. You will see from the seating plan that there is another one at M37.

      Hope this helps!

      Kind regards,

  • No problems. Cricket Australia has not yet announced when the 2017 tickets will go on sale, however in 2016 they went on sale in around October.

    You can purchase your tickets through Ticketek or through the Cricket Australia website.

    I recommend signing up with either (or both) as they often have ticket alerts when big events go on sale. Also, Ticketek often has pre-sale tickets for people who subscribe. These are free services, so don’t sign up to anything that wants to charge you.

    I hope this helps.
    Kind regards,

  • We intend attending MCG Boxing Day test 2017 and are unsure of the best position (what stand etc.) in which to book. We will be coming via tram route 70 from Docklands and wonder what the most convenient stand (Gates) would be, bearing in mind length of walk from tram station, and which row would give the most shade throughout the days. Also, when do the sale of tickets open for the general public?? Any advice/information would be most gratefully received. Many thanks from two longtime cricket fans!! Lois and Colin McGough.

    • Hi Lois and Colin,

      Any where on the Ponsford Stand is well shaded throughout the day, but note that you will get the morning sun during day games (Gate 1)

      The top deck of the Olympic Stand closer to the members is generally shaded as well (Gate 3). The afternoon sun will effect you through out the Great Southern Stand and near the Olympic stand score board.

      I would book the Ponsford Stand, just a 10 minute walk from the tram stop.

      Enjoy the Boxing Day test 2017!
      Kind regards,

      • Many thanks Jess for your prompt reply. Will take your advice re the Ponsford Stand but wonder if you have information on booking (when and where). We are from New Zealand and are at a total loss as to where and when (especially when) to book. We are reasonably computer literate. Can’t thank you enough for your reply as we are two longtime VERY staunch cricket fans, both for Australia and NZ. Our very sincere thanks again. Lois and Colin
