MCG – Great Southern Stand, Melbourne, VIC
The Great Southern Stand at the Melbourne Cricket Ground holds 50,000 spectators for both Australian Rules football and international cricket matches. Clear sightlines, close proximity to the action, comfortable seating, adequate services, food and drink facilities, good companions and a win for the team are all significant aspects of any visit.
There should be a sense of arrival at the outside ticket box, a celebratory progression to ones designated seat and the anticipation of spectacle.
The architecture offers the vision of a gathering place akin to a Colosseum, where the crowd becomes part of the game.
