Media @ the 'G

Cameramen at work at the MCG

The Melbourne Cricket Ground is a world famous sporting venue, attracting numerous requests from media outlets and individuals.

As stadium manager of the MCG, the Melbourne Cricket Club understands that the media has a legitimate interest in the ground’s activities and considers it important to disseminate newsworthy information to its stakeholders via the media.

All media requests for interview or access to the stadium on non-event days must be submitted to the communications manager for approval and coordination.

All media wishing to access the stadium on an event-day are required to have the relevant media accreditation pass as provided by the event promoter.

“The MCG is a shrine, a citadel, a landmark, a totem. It is to this city what the Opera House is to Sydney, the Eiffel Tower to Paris and the Statue of Liberty is to New York; it symbolises Melbourne to the world. It inspires reverence.”

- Greg Baum, September 24, 2003 (The Age)
