    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.

    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.”
