Melbourne Cricket Club | MCC
Founded in 1838 the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) is regarded as the oldest sporting club in Australia and arguably the biggest sporting club in the world.
The club's principal public role, however, remains the progressive management and development of one of the country's greatest assets - the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
The Melbourne Cricket Club has many special interest groups, sporting sections and facilities for members to enjoy.
In 1859, the MCC was involved in the drafting of the first set of rules for Australian rules football, and in 1877 hosted the first game of Test cricket in history - played between Australia and England. In 1971, the ground hosted the first One Day International cricket match.
National Sports Museum
The M.C.G. is also home to the National Sports Museum, Australia's greatest showcase of sport, which honours Australian Football, cricket, Olympic Games, soccer and many other sports.
The National Sports Museum also brings renewed energy to the MCG's traditional role as the spiritual home of Australian sport, re-establishing the stadium's renowned heritage facilities within a new, modern museums and entertainment precinct for use by the public, MCC members and tourists alike.
Located across two levels of the newly-refurbished Olympic Stand, visitors can enter the National Sports Museum via Gate 3 and immerse themselves in some of the finest sports-related artefacts and interactive technology witnessed anywhere in the world.
