Food and beverage

Like the rest of the hospitality industry nationally, the MCG is experiencing some staffing shortages which has meant the closure of some bar and food outlets throughout the venue.

While the team works hard to provide you with great service, we ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate through these shortages.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Multi-Faith Prayer Room

As the holy month of Ramadan is upon us at the moment, patrons are reminded of the MCG’s new Multi-Faith Prayer Room which recently opened.

Patrons are invited to use the space to observe their own individual prayer in a purposely built room which has both male and female areas accommodating up to 50 users at any one time.

Situated on Level B1 of the Shane Warne Stand, the Multi-Faith Prayer Room can be found behind section 14.
