I’m going to the cricket this arvo with my two boys; knowing that its going to be hot, I’m planning for our hydration. I’m intending to take some soft drinks (three sealed 1250 ml plastic bottles) and some ice (frozen tap water in used 1250ml plastic soft drink bottles). I’ve heard some chatter on 666 ABC that my unsealed ice bottles may not be permitted (but nothing on the sealed soft drink bottles) but I’ve not been able to find out anything definitive on the Manuka Oval website. Cricket Australia has decreed in its ’2013-14 Conditions of Ticket Purchase and Entry to the Venue’ (with which I had to agree to buy the tickets) that (inter alia) ‘no alcohol, glass, cans… may be brought into the venue’ (clause 8) and ‘that [patrons] are required to take appropriate care for their sun protection and hydration’ (clause 14).
In the complete absence of official info on the venue website, does anyone have a more definitive /authoritative response?
