The largest Cricket stadium in the world, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) will ban parking during the major events.

Meanwhile, they will try to prevent vehicle attacks on pedestrians that have rocked major cities around the world.

Previously, MCG banned parking during the opening days of the Boxing Day Test between Australia and England in December. Meanwhile, they will have similar restrictions for the marquee events throughout the year.

MCG bans car parking:

Melbourne Cricket Club in a statement confirmed the news. MCC CEO Stuart Fox said they would attempt to minimise the risk.

Ongoing events both around the world and closer to home clearly demonstrate that we need to minimize the risk of interactions between vehicles and pedestrians, especially in crowded places such as outside the MCG,” Fox said.

The ban will also work Australian Football League season-opener between champions Richmond and Carlton next week. Also, it will remain closed during other blockbuster sporting events in coming months.

However, for other events organisers would set an 80-meter “exclusion zone” between vehicles and the stadium which would reduce parking to two-thirds of its normal capacity.

Meanwhile, recently many fringe elements have used vehicles to attack people several times in Europe and the United States.
