MCC stands

Restricted membership

Restricted membership of the Melbourne Cricket Club entitles access to the Members Reserve for almost all events at the MCG.

Access to the Members’ Reserve

The Members’ Reserve has a capacity of almost 23,000 and is where members and their guests gather to witness the great sporting moments at the MCG.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, 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 is in place and underpins the Club’s commitment to protecting the ongoing wellbeing of members and their guests.

In another measure of the COVIDSafe Event Plan, members MUST pre-book a ticket to any upcoming matches they wish to attend at the MCG. There will be no walk-up opportunity for members.

Members will be allocated to the Members’ Reserve zone with a section, row and seat listed on a digital ticket sent by Ticketek. This ticket will not be for entry as members are still required to scan into the Members’ Reserve using their membership card, which will be activated upon securing a reserved seat. The Ticketek issued digital ticket will be used by event staff to direct you to the correct seat.

2021-22 Cricket Season

The MCG will host both domestic and international matches across the 2021-22 cricket season with the fixture to feature KFC BBL|11 blockbusters, Marsh Sheffield Shield and One-Day Cup competitions in addition to the traditional Boxing Day Test when the Men’s Ashes Series returns to Australia this summer.

View the schedule here. Members’ arrangements for these events will be released in stages due to the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Restricted members are entitled to attend meetings of the Club but are unable to vote; nor can they nominate committee or office-bearer candidates, nominate new members or receive privileges at interstate and overseas reciprocal clubs.
