  • MCG and Etihad Stadium
    The Melbourne Cricket Ground’s is the mecca of sport in our state. The MCG or 'The G', as it is affectionately named, was established in 1853, less than 20 years after the founding of Melbourne. The MCG has been the home of Australian football since 1859, and was the birthplace of Test cricket in 1877 and one-day international cricket in 1971. It was the main stadium for the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games and attracts up to 100,000 fans to the annual AFL Grand Final and Boxing Day Cricket Test. Other events have included World Cup soccer, rugby league and State of Origin matches, international rugby union as well as concerts and charity events. It has hosted Papal and Royal visits and housed US Marines and airforce and our own RAAF during World War II. The MCG is a pleasant 10-minute walk along the Yarra River or through parkland from the city. Depending on your location we may walk, tram or drive to the ground. Our seats are 2nd tier in the AFL Members section, giving us the best view of this amazing stadium and our great game
