The ‘G, as it is affectionately known as, is probably one of the largest and greatest sport stadiums in the world. MCG stands for the Melbourne Cricket Ground. It was built in 1853 and besides being the home of cricket and footy (ALF) it also hosted the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. The ‘G is managed by the Melbourne Cricket Club and also holds a National Sports Museum. The official capacity of the MCG is 105,000 people.
Just next to Richmond train station it also has ample parking surrounding it. Though many footy or cricket fans might stop by one of the nearby pubs before entering.
