MCG to explore roof experience concept

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Plans are being developed to bring an exciting new tourism product to the MCG, allowing visitors and locals to see and experience Australia’s most famous stadium like never before.

With the assistance of a $650,000 grant from the Federal Government’s Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure program, Melbourne Cricket Club will now seek to develop the finer details behind a Roof Experience attraction at the MCG.

In addition to the ever-popular stadium tour and National Sports Museum products, visitors will be able to walk on the MCG’s city end roof, taking in spectacular views of the ground itself, as well as Melbourne’s sporting precinct and city skyline. 

As if that wasn’t enough, they will also be able to add to the thrill with a unique zipline that will transport participants from the city end scoreboard to a landing on the opposite side of the stadium.

The roof experience will enhance the MCG’s existing multi-faceted tourism offering and be a must-see attraction that will encourage repeat visitation.

The project represents a multi-million dollar investment by MCC, with management to continue scoping how and when the new attraction will be implemented at the stadium.
