50-year membership

50-year membership is classified and holds the entitlements of Full membership.

The Melbourne Cricket Club provides additional benefits to 50-year members on match days including access to an exclusive reserved seating area on Level 2 within Bay N42, access to the John Landy Room (located in Level 2, behind Bay N37) and priority access to the Members' Reserve.

2021 AFL Premiership Season

During the last twelve months, the Club has worked closely with the Victorian Government to develop a framework in which major events can operate. This has resulted in the endorsed COVIDSafe Event Plan that will be in place for the 2021 AFL Premiership Season and underpins the Club’s commitment to protecting the ongoing wellbeing of members and their guests.

It is a requirement of this COVIDSafe Event Plan that members MUST pre-book a ticket to games of the 2021 AFL Premiership Season they wish to attend. There will be no walk-up opportunity for members.

The Club’s 50-Year members must book a seat via Ticketek into the Members’ Reserve or the 50-Year member only seating area (N42). Please note that tickets in N42 will be available on a first-in, first-served basis and there will be a limited number of seats available per match. Should capacity in this area be reached, 50-Year members will still be able to obtain a seat elsewhere in the Reserve (subject to capacity).

Members will not be charged a fee to secure a reserved seat in the Members’ Reserve and booking tickets will be done on a first-in, first-served basis.

If 50-Year members wish to book tickets with another member (not a 50-Year member) or visitor, they will not be eligible to sit in N42 as this seating area is only available exclusively for 50-Year members.

The John Landy Room will have very limited capacity so we ask 50-Year members to respect the needs of some of our more elderly 50-Year members who may benefit from using the room and protecting themselves from the outside elements.
