As a VRC Member, you are entitled to reciprocal privileges at selected racecourses and sporting clubs.

The Melbourne Cricket Club extends a special offer to VRC members and their guests to attend the MCC Members Reserve when South American giants, Brazil and Argentina, grace the MCG turf on Friday June 9,  and again a few days later when our own Socceroos take on Brazil on Tuesday June 13.

VRC members can buy a visitor ticket for themselves, and up to two for guests to access unreserved seating on levels 1 and 4 in the MCC Reserve.  Prices for the Brazil-Argentina match are $115 for adults and $60 for children while the prices are $95 and $50 respectively for the Socceroos-Brazil match. 

Please note that dress standards will apply. Tickets can be purchased online via Ticketek here.

When purchasing online, you will need to input your unique purchase code in the Member Barcodes box when prompted.

Your unique purchase code is VRC followed by your Membership Number, for example Membership Number 1234567 would be: VRC1234567

This is a rare opportunity to see some of world football's finest players in one place.

Application process

Applications for reciprocal arrangements need to be made in writing at least 10 working days in advance to:

VRC Membership Department

When applying to the VRC, please state race club, country, travel dates, racemeetings, name of any guest(s) attending and accommodation details if available.

Contact will be made on your behalf to confirm reciprocal arrangements, costs and dress standards. Members will be notified via email or telephone.

We recommend that Members make contact with the international club prior to the raceday to confirm arrangements. Members are generally required to pay racecourse admission fees, and then proceed to the oncourse enquiry office to arrange privileges by presenting a current Full VRC Membership Card and/or introductory letter. 

Certain clubs prefer to deliver passes to your hotel or accommodation.

Please note that most clubs, during their carnival period or feature racedays, enforce special conditions of entry and privileges offered to visiting Members.

Please ensure you make contact with the VRC well in advance to arrange reciprocal privileges.
