How to join the MCC membership waiting list

In order to be placed on the MCC membership waiting list, the candidate must complete a nomination form and submit it to the club with an accompanying fee of $135 (incl. GST).

Nomination forms require the signature of both a proposer and seconder that must be Full members of the Melbourne Cricket Club.

Unfortunately, the MCC does not accept nomination applications via email or forms that have been scanned or photocopied. We require the original copy of the form with original signatures. Forms may be posted to the Club at the address listed below. Alternatively, you can drop the forms into the Club at Membership Services via Gate 2 of the MCG.

Postal Address
Melbourne Cricket Club
PO Box 175
East Melbourne, VIC, 8002

In accordance with the club rules, it is the responsibility of the candidate to obtain two Full members to propose and second their application. Restricted and Provisional members are not permitted to propose or second nominations.

Please note, no additional fees will be incurred until an offer of membership is made.

Full members are able to propose or second a maximum of 4 nominations per membership season.

Payment methods

Please note that when a nomination form is sent in the post, payment can be made with credit card (MasterCard or Visa only) or via cheque or money order made out to the Melbourne Cricket Club.

If paying in person, please note the MCC is a cashless venue. 

If you require any further information, please email the club.

How long must I wait to be a member?

The committee determines the number of candidates it can offer Full, Restricted and Provisional membership in June/July of each year.

Due to numerous variable factors that are taken into consideration when determining new member intakes each year, it is not possible to estimate exactly how long a candidate on the waiting list will have to wait before they are offered membership.However, we do know the nomination date of the latest candidates elected to membership in our intake for the 2022/23 season.


The MCC Committee has confirmed the membership intake for the 2023/24 season.

The Club proposes to elect existing Restricted members nominated on the waiting list from October 1, 1992 to October 31, 1992 inclusive to Full membership.

Existing Provisional members nominated from January 1, 1999 to January 31, 1999 inclusive will be upgraded to Restricted membership.

Waiting list candidates nominated from December 1, 2006 to January 31, 2007 inclusive will be offered Provisional membership.

The waiting list, therefore, will consist of candidates nominated from February 1, 2007 to today.
