Non-match day

One of the lesser-known benefits of being an MCC member is the opportunity to avail yourself and guests of the function and dining facilities on offer at the MCG on non-match days.

Members can book fabulous locations such as the Members Dining Room, Long Room or Bullring Bar for private functions with a touch of class. Please note that use of the Long Room for private functions requires approval from the MCC Committee.

An excellent a la carte luncheon is served in the Committee Room on Level 2 of the Members Reserve, adjacent to the Long Room, on all weekday non-event days.
