Other MCG Events

Bledisloe Cup action 2007

The MCG has established a marvellous history that compares favourably with any other in the world, hosting plenty of international cricket including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Other sporting spectacles that have been held there include Australian World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin as well as Bledisloe Cup rugby union clashes.

Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. In addition, the World Police and Fire Games (1995) and World Masters Games (2002) have featured at the ground.

People from all over Australia, and indeed all over the world, speak reverently about the MCG, a ground that is as well known as any other.
