Product Description

SCG

TOUR-1626

The Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) is a sports stadium in Sydney in Australia. It is used for Test cricket, One Day International cricket, some rugby league and rugby union matches and is the home ground for the New South Wales Blues cricket team and the Sydney Swans of the Australian Football League. It is owned and operated by the SCG Trust that also manages the Sydney Football Stadium located next door.

The SCG has been a popular arena for a whole range of sports before the turn of the 20th century including cricket, tennis, baseball, football (soccer) and cycling with athletics being staged there as early as 1879. On New Year's Day, 1880, possibly some of the most exotic sports ever seen at the SCG were staged when the 12th Annual Highlands Games was held. Organised by the Scottish community events included tossing the caber, putting the stone and other traditional Highland sports as well as Highland dancing. A crowd of 5000 attended. On 5 May 1964, 51,566 football (soccer) fans came to the SCG to see NSW take on English club Everton F.C.. For the first time in the history of the A-League, the SCG will hold a match between Sydney FC and North Queensland Fury, as the Sydney Football Stadium next door is holding a Rugby League match.
