From fixtures featuring Rahul Dravid to games against schools and clubs
During the high point of the summer, MCC can be found playing in up to fifteen fixtures at one time across the UK.
The Club also undertakes several overseas tours each year, helping develop the game in countries below Test level.
More high profile matches include Secretary's Matches against stronger opposition, many of which take place on the main Ground at Lord's.
The MCC fixture with the highest profile however remains the annual Champion County fixture against the previous season's domestic four-day winners which has taken place in Abu Dhabi for the past four seasons as part of the Club's efforts to develop day/night cricket, under lights and with a pink ball.
