According to the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust website: "You can follow in the footsteps of Australia's sporting greats. Sit in the Dressing Rooms where many of our sporting legends prepared for their finest moments. Walk the halls and corridors where our heroes and champions trod."

Find out the secrets of the SCG pitch and hear about the infamous ghost that walks the hallowed halls.
