How to obtain Passes

Advance Applications

Applications will be processed in order of receipt and accepted via the online advance application form, by fax (03 9650 5682), email ( or post. 

In the interests of allowing as many members as possible the opportunity to introduce guests into these areas, a limit of ten successful advance applications per member for the football season applies and a limit of three applies during the cricket season.

Members who do not collect their allocation of passes without notifying the club in advance, will be excluded from making further applications during the season.
