MCG Tours


From Saturday November 20, the MCG Tours will re-open to the public, trading seven days a week between 10.00am-3.00pm, excluding MCG event days.

Tickets need to be pre-booked to assist with capacity management and contact tracing. Pre-book online now.

The MCG Shop inside Gate 3 of the MCG will also re-open, trading in line with the opening hours of the Australian Sports Museum.

In line with the current Victorian Government health directives, all venues within the MCG will only be accessible to fully vaccinated patrons (over the age of 16). Children under 16 years old do not need to be vaccinated but must be accompanied by fully vaccinated adults.

Unvaccinated patrons will not be permitted to enter the MCG, unless they are able to display a valid immunisation medical exemption provided by a Victorian Government-approved health professional.

As visitors arrive at the MCG, they will be asked to bring up their COVID-19 digital certificate to display to MCG staff at the entrance gate in one of two ways:

  1. Scan the QR code outside the entrance gate using the Services Victoria App on your smart device
  2. Show their COVID-19 digital certificate in the same smart wallet on their device, that houses their digital ticket from Ticketek

For visitors without a smart device, they will be required to provide a printed version of the COVID-19 digital certificate or Immunisation History statement, which can be used as evidence of vaccination.
