MVP membership is not available to the general public. As a member, you enjoy exclusive pricing on future pass products and other premium services. To remain eligible for MVP pricing in future seasons you must continue to purchase an MVP Pass every season.The MVP Pass is a great deal. Why is membership closed to the public this year?

If you are a current MVP Passholder in the 2005/06 season, you are an MVP Club member. If you do not have an MVP Pass in the 2005/06 season you are not a member and not eligible for MVP Pass pricing.I am a 2004/05 (2003/04/ 2002/03/ 2001/02) MVP Passholder.

No. If you do not have an MVP Pass in the current 2005/06 season you are not a member and you are not eligible for MVP Pass pricing. Beginning with the 2005/06 pass, eligibility in the MVP Club is now maintained by continuing to purchase an MVP Pass every consecutive season.
