Melbourne Cricket Club



The Melbourne Football Club (MFC) is an official Sporting Section of the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC). Visit www.mcc.org.au to read more about the MCC.

History
As football took hold during the second half of the 1800s, the relationship between the MCC and MFC also developed into the football club becoming an MCC Sporting Section in 1889. The two clubs worked together to evolve the MCG into one of the world’s greatest sporting stadiums: “if the MCG is ‘the paddock that grew’, we cultivated it together, through hope and hardship, with characters and colour, and with a shared heart that always beats true.” This relationship continued through to 1980 when the two clubs decided to separate.

The MFC rejoined the MCC as a Sporting Section in 2009 “for the greater good, and with a spirit of mutuality and reciprocity.”

Today, more than 20,000 MCC members support the Demons, making it the most popular AFL team amongst the MCC membership.

Dual MFC/MCC membership
Current MCC members can provide valuable support to the MFC by becoming dual MFC/MCC members. There are two membership categories: Premium ($160) and Standard ($50). Premium membership includes an Adult 11 Game membership (which provides access to Etihad home games), free Junior Membership, free admission to an exclusive Premium Members social function with players and coaches and an Ins and Outs SMS each Thursday afternoon. Members of both categories are included in the MFC’s AFL-recognised membership tally and receive an exclusive 2011 member scarf, flashing demon horns, magazines, regular email updates, access to functions, discounts on merchandise and more.

Combined events
Joint MFC/MCC events are held throughout the year including designated match-day functions for dual MCC/MFC members in the Jim Stynes Room. In addition, the MCC kindly provides access to the prestigious Long Room and Committee Room for select MFC events and the MFC hosts the MCC Committee at a home game every season.

MCC preference at the ballot for MFC players
Players of all sporting sections who demonstrate loyalty and excellence to their section and meet a set criteria are eligible to receive preference at the ballot for election to MCC Full membership.  The criteria for MFC players is 100 senior games for the Demons. This is a very special privilege for long serving players and is the only way under MCC rules that a person can be escalated to membership off the waiting list.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do MCC attendance numbers affect the MFC’s gate takings at MFC home games?

Yes, for each MCC Member who enters the MCC Reserve during a Melbourne home game the MCC contributes a significant portion of the general admission fee towards MFC gate takings.

I’ve just purchased a dual membership.  When will I receive my membership pack?
Once your membership is processed, your membership pack will be sent direct to you from the MFC. Please allow time for processing and then up to two weeks for delivery.

How will I receive my scarf and flashing demon horns?
Country Interstate and International members will receive these in the mail with their membership pack. Melbourne-based members can collect their scarf and horn during any MCG match day during Rounds 1-12.

As a Premium Member, how do I sign up my free Junior Member?
This can be done by completing the relevant section of the MFC/MCC membership form (sent out by the MCC) or by contacting MFC Membership Services at any stage.
