Overview: Melbourne Cricket Club drives member engagement
The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) is the largest sporting club in Australia with over 140,000 active members.
Find out how MCC significantly improved their email deliverability and saved over AUD$100,000 annually for their renewal notifications via email by using Experian Data Validation for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement.
MCC has over 330,000 records in its database for members and waiting list candidates and continues to grow annually. Historically, the Club relied heavily on postal addresses to fulfil member activities such as posting initial application forms, shipment of member cards and goods, as well as giving notice of renewal. While postal mailing is an important channel, the Club recognised the need to digitise its engagement strategy. Digitisation would ensure; reduced postal costs, meeting the needs of members who prefer email and text messaging, and delivery of timely updates to members and applicants especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The MCC has the public responsibility of managing the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Australia’s largest stadium. The aim is to create unforgettable experiences for members nationally and internationally, through live sporting events, entertainment and culture.

Since the early 2000s, MCC has used Experian’s real-time address, email and mobile validation solutions at the point of data capture on its website and within the Microsoft Dynamics 365 CE. The solutions put in place check addresses against official data from Australia Post and directly with mailbox and mobile network providers to ensure existence and deliverability. If details are incorrect, the person entering the data is prompted to make corrections before submitting the form, preventing manual rework of data for MCC later down the line.Find out how data validation could help your business
