Today’s Courier Mail headline “Fans say no wave rule kills the fun” has caused some misunderstanding among Stadium patrons.

To clarify, the Mexican wave has NOT been banned by the Stadium. What we are trying to limit is irresponsible patrons deliberately throwing drinks and food into the air during the wave which then spills onto other patrons. Patrons found to be deliberately doing this during the wave are warned by Police/Security and if they persist, can be removed from the Stadium. This approach is taken in the interests and comfort of all patrons who should not be subject to having beer, softdrink and food thrown over them.
