Cricket Australia is gearing up to elevate the buzz around the upcoming Boxing Day Test with an exciting Pakistan Fan Zone just outside Gate 4 of the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
This three-day extravaganza aims to enrich the fan experience, blending cricket, culture, and entertainment seamlessly.
At this event, fans can unwind on traditional Char Pai (woven beds) while soaking in the game’s atmosphere. The Test’s opening day will witness a special fan walk, giving devoted Pakistan supporters a platform to showcase their loyalty.
Adding a touch of traditional street cricket, there’s a planned tape ball cricket match. And to tantalize taste buds, a Halal Desi food truck will offer a diverse range of flavors.
Interactive participation zones throughout the event promise to amplify the match-day joy. Faisal Amlani will deliver a live performance on Day 1, setting the stage before the cricket action begins.
For a more laid-back viewing experience, ‘The Outfield’ provides a dedicated area with deck chairs, bean bags, and picnic rugs, catering to fans seeking shade or a closer view outside the stadium.
Fans also have an opportunity to watch the Pakistan squad train during the open day on December 21 (Thursday).
Additionally, Pakistan secures extra practice through a two-day match against a Victoria side on December 22nd and 23rd, successfully negotiating more warm-up time.
The second Test is scheduled at the renowned Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) from December 26th to the 30th.
