Managing the MCG

Shane Warne bowls Andrew Strauss at the MCG to claim his 700th Test wicket.The MCC is a private club, incorporated under the Melbourne Cricket Club Act 1974, boasting by far the biggest membership of any sporting club in Australia.

It also has the public responsibility of managing one of the largest and the most successful stadiums in Australia and the world – the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

The MCG is built on crown land and is a significant asset of the Victorian people. The Melbourne Cricket Ground Trust, established by the Melbourne Cricket Ground Act 1933, is responsible for the ground management of the MCG.

Section 7(1) states “The function of the Trust is to manage and control and make improvements to the Ground at its discretion.”

In 2003, following the signing of the Management and Indemnity Deed between the Melbourne Cricket Club, the Melbourne Cricket Ground Trust and the Treasurer of Victoria, the MCC is contracted to manage the MCG until 2042.

Under the terms of the Deed the MCC has the exclusive rights to manage the MCG in accordance with the terms of the Management and Indemnity Deed.
