Ticket Information

Tickets to all events at the MCG are sold through Ticketek.

The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 (consisting of 95,000 seats and approximately 5000 standing room spaces).

Most events have a seating configuration that allows for patrons to pre-purchase reserved seats to guarantee entry. Any unsold seats are then available on the day of the event at the gate until sold out.

Tickets sold at the venue on event days from the public gates are sold on a first-in, first-served basis.

On some occasions, such as the annual Anzac Day AFL match and the AFL Grand Final, all seats are pre-sold as reserved seats and are all allocated prior to the event.

Each sport or event has its own specific seating arrangements. Each home team seating configuration impacts on what seats are sold to the general public on a match-by-match basis.

Please consult the seating plan for a general overview of the ground’s seating areas.

As a guide however, please refer the table on the following page which outlines where the drip line for each level lies.


I have a standing room ticket, how early do I need to arrive at the ground so I can see the match?

It is in your best interest to arrive as early as possible to guarantee a position in the front. Positions in standing room bays are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Can I bring a stool/walking stool on wheels/cushion/portable chair to sit on while I am in the standing room bay?

No, these items are not permitted in standing room bays.


How many other people will be in the standing room bay as me?

Standing room bays vary in capacities and thus it is dependent on which bay you have a ticket for. All bays have been measured according to building codes and standards.


What will my view of the ground be like with a restricted view ticket?

It depends on where your ticket is. However, most restricted view tickets allow for a majority of the playing surface to be seen and a scoreboard or television screen.
