Let’s get back to cricket in Australia. One of the most important stadiums in Australia is the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). It is used for cricket as well as for football. The stadium opened its doors in 1854 and currently has a capacity of almost 100,000. It has been the main stadium of the Olympic games since 1956, right after it opened. Besides that, it is one of the biggest cricket stadiums all around the globe. It has been even bigger, but due to safety measurements, the capacity was lowered. Before, it had a capacity of 120,000.
