Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) has extended its partnership with Ticketek Australia to continue ticketing for its famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Under the new agreement, Ticketek and its parent company, TEG, will seek to attract a number of new major events to the MCG.

The firm will also work to ensure increases to ticket transaction fees and charges will remain within annual CPI growth.

The MCG is Australia’s largest stadium, hosting AFL, international and BBL cricket, rugby league, football, concerts and other major functions.

More than 3.5 million fans attend the 100,024-capacity cricket ground annually.

MCC chief executive Stuart Fox said: “The MCG is a world-class stadium and we continue to look at ways of enhancing the fan experience at the MCG.

“As the leading ticketing partner to the sports and live entertainment industry in Australia, we’re delighted that Ticketek will continue to provide its ticketing services at the MCG and we look forward to working with them to bring some new and exciting events to the stadium.”

TEG chief executive Geoff Jones said: “The MCG is a national treasure in Australian sport and entertainment. We are honoured and delighted to have a continuing role in the delivery of great events at this world-renowned venue in partnership with the MCC.”
