Calling all cricket fans… The Melbourne Renegades unveiled its epic family entertainment zone, the ‘Gades Arcade’, at last Sunday’s KFC Big Bash League (BBL) clash against Sydney Thunder at Marvel Stadium.

Throughout the season, families are invited to experience an all-new BBL-first dedicated kids area within the seating bowl of Marvel Stadium – featuring arcade games, mini golf, a barber shop plus an area for parents to relax – all accessible for free with a general admission ticket.

“The Gades Arcade will bring next level entertainment to families attending our Marvel Stadium games this summer. The Big Bash is such an exciting format of cricket that is great for all ages.

Melbourne Renegades General Manager, James Rosengarten

Picture yourself standing on the edge of the playing surface, having a great time playing arcade games or mini golf, you can even grab a hair cut – that’s pretty cool, and best of all it’s included in your cricket ticket price!
