AUSTRALIA’S Tim Cahill is the eighth highest-paid player in Major League Soccer, earning an annual salary of $3.92 million.

    WE’VE been blessed with Del Piero, Fowler, Yorke and co. But David Villa is another proposition altogether. Here’s why we’re absolutely pumped.

    IF Greg Inglis is feeling any pressure heading into one of the biggest games of his life, then he’s not showing it.

    IF Issac Luke is suspended for Sunday’s grand final, he’ll pay the ultimate price for an overcomplicated system where the punishment doesn’t fit the crime.

    DAVID Villa will touch down in Melbourne next Tuesday and be available to play for Melbourne City in its Round 1 clash against Sydney FC at Allianz .

    May 20, 2011

    The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) is pleased to advise that it has re-appointed Spotless Group Limited as preferred catering service provider for the Melbourne Cricket Ground, following an extensive tender evaluation process.

    Subject to agreement, the company’s boutique catering brand, Epicure, will deliver all retail catering and fine dining services at the stadium for five years, commencing in October, 2011. The decision extends a 33-year association between the MCC and Spotless at the MCG.

    “The delivery of catering services is a vital component of our stadium operations, for public patrons, MCC members and our corporate clients” said MCC acting CEO, Trevor Dohnt. “We congratulate Epicure on their re-appointment and look forward to working together to create positive experiences for all who visit the MCG.”

    Spotless CEO Josef Farnik said the MCG is pivotal to the company’s commitment to the leisure, sports and entertainment sector.

    “Our longstanding partnership with the Melbourne Cricket Club is critically important to Spotless,” said Mr Farnik. “The successful re-appointment of this flagship contract reinforces our capability in stadia for crowds of up to 100,000 people.”
