Take note, NRL: Fan praises food and drink prices at Warriors vs Cowboys game at Redcliffe
Take note, Peter V’landys – this is what the people want: Fans praise prices at Warriors vs Cowboys game at Redcliffe with $29 tickets, $6 beers, $5 pies and $8 burgers
- NRL fans have long suffered enormous expenses for food and drink
- Footy fans praised Moreton Daily Stadium for their affordable options
- The venue hosted the Warriors v Cowboys NRL clash on Friday
- It is also the home venue of incoming NRL franchise the Dolphins
The Dolphins might not be entering the NRL until 2023 but they are already making a big impression when it comes to the game day experience.
Moreton Daily Stadium is the home of the Redcliffe Dolphins as they compete in the Queensland Intrust Super Cup, but it’s also been adopted by the New Zealand Warriors as their home away from home.
While the Dolphins are expected to play the majority of their NRL matches at Suncorp Stadium, they will train and be based at Moreton Daily and it is expected they will play some NRL matches at the venue.
They have already impressed fans when it comes to hospitality, with NRL diehards taking to social media to praise the stadium for offering quality food and drink at affordable prices.
At the venue, you can get full-strength spirits in a can for $9 (unavailable in the public areas of major stadiums), pay just $6 for a full-strength beer, get a meal for $7 and enjoy sandwiches or a hot pie for around $5.
‘This is how Rugby League should be. $29 tickets, $9 full strength cans of rum, $6 beer cans, $5 pies, $8 burgers, park n walk to the ground. Bravo @DolphinsRLFC @dolphinsnrl. This beyond epic!’ one fan posted on Twitter.
‘Dolphins stadium beer prices cheaper than my local pub,’ posted another.
The praise for the venue continued on Google Reviews.
‘Great venue with comfortable seats and great food and drinks that aren’t overpriced,’ a fan posted.
‘Forget Suncorp, this is the place for footy. $6.50 for a proper beer, reasonably priced food, lots of room. This is an affordable night out for the family,’ posted another.
Major footy venues like Suncorp Stadium and the Gabba in Brisbane and the MCG in Melbourne have long been known for their expensive food and drink products.
On top of that, you can only purchase mid-strength alcohol in all public areas served in plastic cups.
The larger venues have also become more upmarket, adding dining experiences to the menu that carry premium price tags.
At Suncorp you can pay $89 to access a Mexican-styled rooftop area run by local business Carlos Tacos during Broncos games. Bear in mind that price just gets you in the door – you still have to pay for food and drinks.
There is nothing more iconic than grabbing a hot meat pie at the footy, but many of the larger venues will charge you a premium price
The MCG has also unveiled a footy food makeover in 2022 with iconic Melbourne chefs Guy Grossi and Alejandro Saravia along with Royal Stacks, Gami Chicken and SPQR Pizza providing culinary experiences at the venue.
While the Sydney Football Stadium is being rebuilt, more footy fans are flocking to the SCG where they can get a pretty good deal on most food and drink purchases. Prices range from $4.50 for a sausage roll to over $12 for a meal such as fish and chips while beers start at $6.50 and wines from $7.50.
Moreton Daily Stadium is a suburban ground located at Redcliffe, north of Brisbane. It is currently the adopted home of the New Zealand Warriors
CommBank Stadium at Parramatta has seven footy staples available for less than $5, including a pie, hot dog, hot chips or a sausage roll. You can also get gourmet options like noodle stir-fry, an Angus beef burger or spicy buffalo wings.
A light beer will set you back $6.50 but you are going to pay up to $8.50 for anything else and it will be mid-strength and served in a plastic cup.
