Optus Stadium has released tickets to the live broadcast of Shane Warne’s MCG memorial service, with West Australians invited to pay their respects to the Australian cricket legend.
The event is free but attendees are required to register for tickets.
The memorial will be held on Wednesday, March 30 with gates opening at 3pm before proceedings begin at 4pm AWST.
Patrons are required to follow the stadium’s Conditions of Entry, which include wearing a mask, showing proof of vaccination (or a valid medical exemption) and sign in using the SafeWA app.
WA Sport and Recreation Minister David Templeman labelled Warne a “one of a kind” figure, saying many Australians felt a connection with the cricketing legend.
“The McGowan Government is pleased to have facilitated this fitting tribute to the King of Spin, who was known for his unique personality as much as his sporting prowess,” Mr Templeman said.
“He was just a wonderful player to watch and a great Australian character.
“I know Western Australian cricket fans have nothing but fond memories of the many summers Shane Warne spent plying his trade at the WACA Ground.”
Warne was laid to rest by family and friends in a private funeral on Sunday.
The 52-year-old spin king tragically died of a heart attack on March 4 while holidaying in Thailand.
