SOUTH AFRICA’S captain says Australia’s cricketers can’t expect the Proteas to want to be mates with them. Australia v South Africa LIVE from 5.30pm (EST).

    SENNA did it. So did Fangio, Brabham and Schumacher. A third F1 win on bounce at Monza would put Daniel Ricciardo in rare company.

    BERNARD Tomic is through to round 2 of the US Open after a straight sets victory over Dustin Brown while Marinko Matosevic was unable to topple five-time champion Roger Federer.

    THE FFA Cup Round of 16 has thrown up some fantastic fixtures, none bigger than Sydney United's clash with A-League side Sydney FC.

    FORGET the Socceroos. There’s a team of rising Aussie basketball superstars we should all get behind this week. They might even beat the USA. Really.

    Liverpool FC ticket update

    Jun 27, 2013

    Liverpool's Steven GerrardMembers and their guests will have normal first-in, first-served walkup access to the MCC Members Reserve for the Melbourne Victory v Liverpool match on Wednesday July 24 at 8.00pm.

    As has been the case for recent special events at the MCG, members will be required to pay a subsidised admission fee ($45) to enter the Reserve.

    Members are also able to purchase up to four visitor tickets for guests ($79 for adults and $45 for children aged 6-15).

    Members are advised that entry tickets and visitor tickets are unlikely to be on sale at Gate 2 on the night of the match.

    Any member wishing to purchase tickets to this event should do so via Ticketek HERE as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

    NOTE: As members are expected to accompany their guests in the Reserve, members will not be able to purchase visitor tickets unless they have validated their own membership card for entry.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Members’ Entry

    Full, Restricted, Playing and Temporary members and guest cardholders will be required to pre-purchase an entry entitlement that will validate their membership card at the turnstiles for this event. 

    Unless an entry entitlement has been purchased, the membership card will not be valid at the turnstiles for entry.

    Members and guest cardholders should also bring their entitlement receipt as proof of their purchase in case there are any problems at the gate.

    It should be noted that in the case of member validations, the actual member must attend with their card and the entitlement is not transferable.

    Guest cards are transferable. However, entry entitlements must also be purchased for these cards and they must be used in accordance with the normal conditions.

    Fifty-year, Honorary Life and Honorary Cricket members will be able to enter the Reserve free of charge by simply scanning their card at the turnstiles as usual. They do not need to purchase an entry entitlement but they must purchase one for their guest card if it is to be used.
