HAWKS promise a never-ending supply of greasy goodness covered in sauce, surrounded by buns, wrapped in foil or dipped in salt for Sunday’s Premier League Grand Final against the CYMS.
As an estimated 3500 footy fans feast their eyes on every tackle, try and goal they will also enjoy a feast of 600 steaks, 200 sausages, 300 pies and 100 sausage rolls, as well as a limitless supply of dagwood dogs and hot chips, courtesy of the Barrett’s Frozen Foods truck.
“Don’t worry we won’t run out of food,” Hawks treasurer Tenielle Hill said.
People thinking of driving might want to put their walking shoes on anyway, as Moulder Street, between Lords Place and McNamara Street, will be closed between 9am and 4.30pm.
Organisers are expecting cars to line the streets for blocks surrounding the football field.
“If you can walk you should walk, or get dropped off if you can,” Miss Hill said.
There will be beer and spirits available to purchase at the game, but those looking to sneak their own alcohol in the grounds in a handbag, esky or shoved underneath a jumper will be bitterly disappointed.
A police officer and two security guards will greet patrons at the gate to search bags.
The club has paid for two police officers to patrol the grounds and another two will be supplied by the Orange station.
There will be an alcohol free area and Miss Hill reminds everyone the game is family friendly and a good excuse to get out, socialise and check out all the grand final footy action.
Entry costs $15 for adults, $5 for pension card holders and concessions.
Gates opens at 8am.
