Notes NOTES: The MCG broke ground in 1853 and the first grandstand was opened in 1854. In 2001 much of the original stadium was demolished and reconstructed by Jackson Architecture and Arup with Connell Mott MacDonald for the Commonwealth Games in 2006. It is also much used for Australian rules football.
