Carlton is seeking to play the majority of its home games at the MCG - an 8-3 split for 2015 and beyond.

The Carlton Football Club’s existing stadium arrangement - six home matches at Etihad Stadium and five at the MCG - concludes at the end of 2014.

With tenancy negotiations commencing in the middle of this year, Carlton is seeking to play the majority of its home games at the MCG - an 8-3 split for 2015 and beyond.

As you may be aware, the AFL controls the fixturing of games. But if the Club can claim a Membership base exceeding 50,000, the League will schedule more Carlton home matches at the home of football.

The Club has listened to Members & supporters, who clearly want to see their team participate in more home games at the MCG. This can only be achieved with the vital support of more Members - 50,000+ by the time negotiations open and 60,000 by the end of 2014.

Historically, the MCG has served as the backdrop for 15 of Carlton’s 16 Grand Final triumphs since 1906. Clearly, it is the preferred venue for this Club going forward.

I cannot underplay the importance of you becoming a 2013 Carlton Member if you haven’t done so already, as today’s Carlton team and the Carlton teams of tomorrow strive to push deep into September at the place where premierships are won.
