MITCHELL Starc’s summer could be over after the Australian paceman left Adelaide Oval on crutches with a foot stress fracture on Friday night.

    AARON Mooy’s brilliance helped Melbourne City return to the A-League’s top six with a comprehensive victory over Perth Glory.

    PETER Siddle became a worthy inductee into the 200-wicket club on Friday night, and is now just one step away from earning what he truly deserves – a Cricket Australia contract.

    MELBOURNE Storm will have the city to themselves in early March with back-to-back NRL home games at AAMI Park before the start of the AFL season.

    JAMES Pattinson is expected to be playing Test cricket by Boxing Day but a fresh injury drama for Mitchell Starc could see him back in Hobart.

    The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) today announced that Ticketek will continue as the ticketing services partner of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) for a further five years, following the completion of a competitive tender process.

    The renewed partnership will ensure patrons continue to receive quick and easy access to tickets for events at the MCG through Australia’s most comprehensive sales and distribution network.

    These include Ticketek’s market leading mobile site and mobile apps, Australia’s number one entertainment events website, a dedicated call centre and extensive national agency network.

    The MCG is one of Australia’s largest and most successful stadiums. An extremely busy venue hosting Australian rules football, international cricket, rugby, soccer, concerts and other major functions, it is attended by more than 3.5 million people annually.

    MCC CEO Stephen Gough is pleased that Ticketek has been reappointed.

    “The MCG is a world-class stadium and we continue to look at ways of enhancing the patron experience at the MCG,” said Mr Gough.

    “As the leading ticketing partner to the sports and live entertainment industry in Australia, we’re delighted that Ticketek will continue to provide its ticketing services at the MCG.”

    “Ticketek is thrilled to be continuing our partnership with the MCG and share their vision for providing world class services,” said Ticketek CEO Geoff Jones.
