How to join the MCC membership waiting list

In order to be placed on the MCC membership waiting list, the candidate must complete a nomination form and submit it to the club with an accompanying fee.

Effective March 1, 2012, the nomination fee is $110 (incl. GST).

Nomination forms require the signature of both a proposer and seconder that must be Full members of the Melbourne Cricket Club.

In accordance with the club rules, it is the responsibility of the candidate to obtain two Full members to propose and second their application. They also do not permit restricted members to propose or second nominations. Please note, no additional fees will be incurred until an offer of membership is made.

Full members are able to propose or second a maximum of 4 nominations per membership season.

Payment methods

Please note that when a nomination form is sent in the post, payment can be made with credit card (MasterCard or Visa only) or via cheque or money order made out to the Melbourne Cricket Club.

When paying in person, all methods of payment are available including EFTPOS and cash.

If you require any further information, please email the club.

How long must I wait to be a member?

The committee determines the number of candidates it can offer Restricted and Full membership in June/July of each year.

Due to numerous variable factors that are taken into consideration when determining new member intakes each year, it is not possible to estimate exactly how long a candidate on the waiting list will have to wait before they are offered membership.

However, we do know the nomination date of the latest candidates elected to membership in our intake for the 2015/16 season.

All Restricted members who were nominated on the waiting list from May 1, 1990 to August 31, 1990 inclusive have been offered Full membership.

Waiting list candidates nominated from August 1, 1996 to November 30, 1996 inclusive have been offered Restricted membership.

Waiting list candidates nominated from December 1, 1996 to October 31, 1997 inclusive have been offered Provisional membership.

The waiting list, therefore, consists of candidates nominated from November 1, 1997 to today.
