The Domain Pink Test in Sydney will have more activities in 2019, with Cricket Australia’s new Pink Village, a free entertainment precinct in Centennial Parklands open to cricket fans and the general public.
Offering food, music and entertainment for fans, as well as comfortable seating to enjoy the cricket action on the big screens, the Pink Village will run from 9:30am to 7:00pm from Thursday 3 January to Saturday 5 January 2019, coinciding with the Pink Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
The Pink Village will be situated in Centennial Parklands outside Gate E of the Sydney Cricket Grounds (SCG), providing event goers with an array of food and beverage offerings from some of Sydney’s most popular eateries, including Nel., Bodega, Agape Organic, Chatkazz and Chur Burger.
There will also be entertainment on offer from some of Sydney’s most promising DJs and music acts, including Oberon Lane, DJ Hughy Lewis, Luxe Duo, DJ Feline and Luke Zanc Trio, during breaks in play and following the day’s cricket.
Cricket Australia’s Executive General Manager of Fan Experience Anthony Everard said, “Launching the Pink Village in Sydney is our commitment to innovating our fan offering and providing delicious food and range of entertainment options in comfortable surrounds, all on the door step of the SCG.
“The Sydney Test has become iconic lining up with the New Year timing, but more importantly it’s the sea of pink that stands out and something we want to continue to build on to support our charity partner, the McGrath Foundation.”
The Domain Pink Test has become the centrepiece of the partnership between Cricket Australia and the McGrath Foundation, with 10-year celebrations last year helping raise more than $1 million.
The annual Pink Test raises funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia and support thousands of people experiencing breast cancer every year.
