Management of the MCG

The MCC Members entrance at Gate 2The government-appointed MCG Trust vests administration of the Melbourne Cricket Ground in the Melbourne Cricket Club, led by president Paul Sheahan and CEO Stephen Gough.

The MCC ensures the MCG remains the leading major events sports stadium in Australia for the benefit of patrons and the public of Victoria, while recognising its location in major public parklands.

The MCC has managed this world class venue since September 23, 1853 when Lieutenant-Governor LaTrobe granted the present site of the MCG to the club. Its current agreement with the Trust expires in 2042.

There are about 150 permanent club employees and event staff are drawn from a pool of 1000-plus for match-day duties at the ground.

The MCC manages the ground through eight departments responsible to the CEO.
