Melbourne: Apart from serving exciting on-field action, Cricket Australia is set to offer its fans multiple on-ground cuisines during the One-day series against India starting January 12.
During matches in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, CA will host a 'Field of Flavours' food market offering fans cuisines from all over the world, according to a release.
Inspired by popular late-night food markets around the world, the events will be created with the help of celebrated celebrity chef, Peter Kuruvita and will give fans the chance to enjoy cuisines including Indian, Vietnamese and Mexican.
Music and dance too
The Melbourne and Sydney events will also feature cultural entertainment such as music and dance. Kuruvita said he was excited to bring a unique approach to food at popular sporting events.
"Fans are often quite limited in their food options at major sporting events, so to offer something new and increase the range on offer is quite exciting," Kuruvita said.
In Perth, the 'Field of Flavours' will only be accessible to fans with match tickets as it will be located inside the WACA on the West Bank for the first ODI.
In Melbourne and Sydney, the food festival is open to the public and will be situated in Yarra Park outside Gate 3 of the MCG, and in Centennial Park outside Gate E of the SCG.
Each site will be well-shaded, complete with tables and chairs, and the MCG site will also feature a big screen broadcasting the cricket for those not a part of the action inside the venue.
