It’s hoped 25,000 people will be able to attend each day of the Boxing Day Test at the MCG this December.

The Victorian Government outlined its plan on Wednesday.

Martin Pakula said “final” decisions would be made closer to the day.

“It’s probably going to be a while before we see 100,000 people back at the MCG,” he said.

Australia will play India this year.

“We’ve got seating plans ready to go,” Stuart Fox, Chief Executive of the Melbourne Cricket Club, told Tom Elliott.

He also addressed questions about whether MCC members would be given preference.

“I would have thought there’ll be a fair and equitable way to disperse tickets to members and the public,” Mr Fox said.
