Eating and Drinking

There are numerous bars and food outlets within the ground, but customers have to consume food and drink bought at these outlets-they are not allowed to bring in their own.

There is a fan’s bar within the stadium that usually has some entertainment on.


Eating & Drinking near the Ground

Although a modern stadium with good facilities and well connected to the motorway network, the stadium falls down in its location. There aren’t many eating and drinking establishments to speak of in the immediate vicinity of the ground, so your best bet might well be to head for the centre of Manchester

  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
