ADELAIDE United missed a golden opportunity to claim the most prized scalp in their history after conceding three second-half goals to Villarreal.

MELBOURNE coach Craig Bellamy says Will Chambers won’t be on a wing at club level anytime soon despite the a remarkable start to his Origin career.

AUSTRALIAN tennis is on the march and the next 48 hours will show exactly how far it has to travel as a trio of Aussies look to make their mark in Paris.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter says he can’t be blamed for the corruption scandal engulfing the organisation, claiming he can’t “monitor” every official.

AUSTRALIA is the raging hot favourite for the Ashes and the upcoming series against West Indies, but do the Aussies deserve to be so confident?

MCC warns waiting list - update details or miss out

May 27, 2011

The MCC is taking affirmative action to ensure that thousands of people waiting for membership can receive their offer – by allowing access to the Members Reserve at the MCG for selected AFL matches in return for a valid email address.

Thousands of potential members risk missing out on a membership offer if they don’t keep their details current, in particular a valid email address, mobile number and postal address.

At present, less than 25% of the waiting list has given the club an email address.

UPDATE YOUR DETAILS NOW!

All those on the waiting list aged six and above who lodge/have lodged a valid email address with the club will be sent details about how to purchase visitor tickets to access the MCC Members Reserve at any of eight nominated AFL home and away matches, starting with Hawthorn v Fremantle on Sunday June 5.

“One of our major frustrations is dealing with people who have waited a long time for membership but did not receive an offer because they neglected to update details,” said MCC president Paul Sheahan.

“By providing us with an email address, we can proactively contact waiting list candidates on an annual basis to check whether they have moved house or changed their details.” 

“This will reduce the heartache involved when candidates who have not updated their details discover they have missed out on a membership offer,” Sheahan said.

“It also allows the club to provide offers such as this one, whereby we allow access to the Members Reserve for some AFL matches.”

Mr Sheahan urged those on the waiting list to act now to avoid despair at a later time.

“Our message is simple. If you are on the waiting list, or think you are, please contact the club to check that we have correct information on file,” he said.

“It would be a shame to wait more than 15 years for membership, only to be wiped off at the last minute!”

One of Australia’s most sought-after sporting memberships, there are more than 101,000 MCC members and a waiting list of more than 213,000 people.
