Visitor Tickets

All categories of adult and junior members are welcome to entertain guests in the Members Reserve and can purchase a maximum of four visitor tickets for entry into the Reserve for most cricket and football matches at the MCG.

There usually are variations for AFL finals, Boxing Day Test and other major sporting events.

Visitor tickets admit guests through Gate 2, which will give access to unreserved seating on levels 1 and 4 of the Members Reserve.

Access to member-only seating areas on levels 2 and 3 for guests will only be permitted if the member has obtained an internal Long Room or Balcony pass for them.

Annual guest cardholders do not have access to the Long Room, Frank Grey Smith Bar or Balcony seating, except when a member has obtained the relevant pass for them.  An annual guest card provides the same access rights as a visitor who has a daily visitor ticket.

Members are advised to purchase visitor ticket requirements early for 'blockbuster' matches, as only a limited number will be available and they may sell out well in advance of that particular match.

Members should be aware that they are responsible for the behaviour of their guests, and that the on-sale of visitor tickets to any event is strictly prohibited under club rules. This includes selling the tickets at face value. 

The club regularly monitors eBay and similar websites used for selling tickets and any member found to be in breach of club rules in this respect can expect to face disciplinary action from the club. We seek your co-operation in this matter.
