    2013 Ashes Test Match, Days 1 - 3
    For Days 1 – 3 of the Test Match the only tickets available to MCC Full members and their guests are Category B and C reserved seats located in the Public Stands. Full members are entitled to apply for tickets for themselves and one guest only.

    2013 Ashes Test Match, Days 4 - 5
    For Days 4 – 5 of the Test Match, MCC Full members and their guests who want a reserved seat will have the opportunity to pre-purchase seats in the Public Stand.  If Full members want to access the Members Reserve, a Reciprocal Guest Pass will need to be purchased for themselves and a Rover ticket for their guest according to the conditions highlighted below.

    Reciprocal Guest Pass
    Upon purchase, allows Full MCC members admittance to the ground and access to the Pavilion and Members’ Friends’ Enclosures free of charge, but no reserved seat. Dress regulations apply. This pass is required to be purchased at Lord’s and will be provided upon presentation of an MCC letter of introduction, MCC membership card and photo ID (preferably your passport).

    If you tick the Reciprocal Guest Pass box on the enclosed form, a letter of introduction will be sent to you prior to departing Australia. The cost of a Reciprocal Guest Pass is based on a sliding scale which is dependent on the length of the visit.  Unless you want to visit Lord’s for other cricket matches during the summer, the £29 pass will be sufficient for the Test.

    Up to 2 weeks  £29
    Between 2-4 weeks £44
    Between 4-6 weeks £56
    More than 2 months £90

    Rover Tickets
    MCC Full members can purchase a Rover Ticket for a guest which admits them to the Members’ Friends’ Enclosures (in the Warner, Tavern and lower tier of the Allen stands but excludes the Pavilion). 

    There are no reserved seats and again dress regulations apply. These tickets are in limited supply and there is no guarantee of how many will be made available.

    Conditions
    Members are unable to alter ticket selections once submitted to the MCC and by lodging the ticket order form, commit to make payment accordingly.  If availability of tickets cannot meet demand, a ballot will be run and payment will only be taken if successful in the ballot. 

    Members need to be aware that the club will need to purchase the tickets from MCC UK based on the exchange rate at the time and the total cost of the ticket purchase price will be borne by the member. 

    Please note MCC UK will dictate what number of Category B and C tickets are allocated therefore we cannot offer a choice. We expect to be informed of exactly how many tickets in each category we have been allocated in December which will determine whether or not we are required to run a ballot before payments are processed.

    Please note that tickets will not be posted to Australia therefore you will need to collect them from the MCC UK ticket office at Lord’s after you have arrived in London.
