Steeped in sporting history, the SCG has been providing a wealth of entertainment for over 150 years. Almost every famous Australian cricketer has competed within the historic grounds, which is considered among the country’s architectural treasures. Located within the eastern suburbs of Sydney and adjacent to the central business district, the SCG sits in the cultural heart of Sydney.
The SCG was established on the former 1852 Garrison Ground behind Victoria Barracks, Paddington, by the NSW Cricket Association. Today, the SCG is highly revered as one of the premier cricket venues in the world, hosting the annual New Year Test, One-Day Internationals and is the home ground of the NSW Blues and the Sydney Sixers.
