MCC Cricket

MCC is the most active cricket club in the world with thousands of playing members taking part in more than 400 matches each year.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the ongoing restrictions on cricket as a result of Covid-19 and in the interests of safety of all our stakeholders, all MCC Out-Matches that are scheduled to take place in June and July 2020 have been cancelled.

This decision is in line with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), as both domestic professional cricket and recreational cricket in England and Wales remains suspended.

The Club hopes to begin playing Out-Matches in August, however we will be guided by the ECB and the Government as to when it is safe for matches to take place.

The situation will be reviewed continually and the Cricket Office will discuss this with the Club’s opponents and players.

The suspension of cricket by the ECB also includes fixtures for the MCC Young Cricketers.

About MCC Cricket

Each year, thousands of playing Members take part in more than 400 matches around the world.

From first-class fixtures featuring international players such as Rahul Dravid to games against schools and clubs celebrating important landmarks.

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 a number of overseas locations. 

In addition, MCC faces over 150 clubs on a regular basis; it also plays a pivotal role in many anniversary matches every season. At present, MCC teams are regarded as guests at these fixtures and, through the generosity of their opponents, there is no match fee for its players. (The Club's overall contribution to cricket does, though, amount to some £3 million per year.)

MCC is always keen to hear from schools where cricket is developing, as well as any club that would like to have MCC play a part in its anniversary celebrations. If you are interested in playing an MCC team, please email the Cricket Office.
