Q - How do members apply for priority tickets for 2020 Test Matches?
A - Priority Test Match Application Forms are available to all Middlesex members (excluding Junior members). All you need to do to take advantage of this benefit is the following:
- Send a stamped (Large Letter stamp) and self-addressed C4 envelope (equivalent to an A4 sheet of paper) into the Middlesex office, with your membership number clearly marked on the envelope.
- Ideally you should send your envelope in to us between the months of July and November for the following season’s Test matches, as we usually receive the Priority Applications Forms from MCC at the end of November each year.
- As soon as we have received the forms from MCC, they will be sent to you if we have received an envelope from you as specified above. Application forms are sent out on a first come first served basis. MCC issues Test Match tickets to Middlesex members for a limited period, normally at the end of November/early December, prior to tickets being opened up to a public ballot.
