OFTEN-maligned Aussie NBA centre Andrew Bogut received some long overdue praise after a huge game for the Warriors in the Western Conference finals.

    RUSSIAN powerpuncher Alex Povetkin took just 91 seconds to destroy Mike Perez and earn a shot at the world heavyweight championship.

    CONTROVERSIAL Reds star James O’Connor didn’t just make the blooper of the season on Friday - he also had a dressing room blow-up with a teammate.

    KANE Williamson’s unbeaten 92 rounded off a fine day’s work for New Zealand in the first Test against England at Lord’s overnight.

    IF Australia is unlikely to host football’s World Cup in the foreseeable future, then maybe 2015 will be looked back on as the year that brought the next best thing

    Cricket World Cup - tickets for members

    Dec 29, 2013

    ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 logoIn 2015 the ICC Cricket World Cup is returning to Australia for the first time in 23 years and MCC members can be a part of it.

    The MCG will host the final, as it did in 1992, as well as a quarter final and three pool matches. View the schedule of matches.

    The requirements of the ICC for staging the Cricket World Cup are significantly different to those that apply under the MCC’s arrangements with Cricket Australia and Cricket Victoria for the staging of other international cricket at the MCG.

    The ICC has the right to use and occupy the whole of the MCG seating bowl, including our members’ area.

    As such, there can be no defined MCC Members Reserve allocated for use by MCC members and their guests during the World Cup matches staged at the MCG.

    This arrangement is similar to other major MCG events such as the 2006 Commonwealth Games and Olympic football at the 2000 Sydney Games.

    However, the ICC has agreed, at the MCC’s request, to provide a priority ticket purchase period for MCC members from Wednesday December 4, 2013. The priority period concludes on January 10, 2014.

    As a member, you will have the opportunity to purchase up to four tickets per match, so you can watch the world’s best battle it out alongside your friends and family.

    Members are required to enter their membership barcode number to be eligible to purchase tickets. As for all other events, your membership card is not transferable under any circumstances.

    Please note: MCC members will need to create a Cricket World Cup account before purchasing tickets, even if you have an existing Ticketek account you have used for other events. Register now using this MCC members’ registration code: MELME9

    The club has retained the use of the Long Room and Members Dining Room as dining facilities at these matches. Further details will be sent to ticket purchasers closer to the event.
