Capital Works

The MCG under construction in 2004.As stadium manager, the Melbourne Cricket Club is constantly striving to ensure the MCG and its facilities remain to world-class standard.

Built in 1853, the MCG has developed into one of the biggest, most recognisable and modern sports stadiums in the world.

There have been 14 grandstands erected at the MCG since the first Members Pavilion of 1854.

The most recent of these was the northern stand redevelopment – comprising demolition of the Ponsford and Olympic Stands, along with the Members Pavilion - which was completed in time for the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

In 2011, the Great Southern Stand will undergo a refurbishment - updates to this project will be provided here when required.
