Code of Conduct:
We want to make sure we honour the great man in the right way, so please abide by our code of conduct.
How can I make sure i'm seated with my mates?
Join a 'row' already set up by a friend, or set up your own 'row' & invite your mates to join you.
How do I set up my own row?
Click the 'Get Tickets' button, choose group (not individual), start a new group and name your group. Then invite friends (via email or Facebook) to join your group or row. All Richies in the same group (or row) will be sat together.
Do I have to wear a suit?
Absolutely! Being a Richie is a commitment to uphold the good character & fine dress standards of the great man himself. You’ll also have to wear a shirt & tie, long pants, wig and of course… your Microphone!
If you want to wear a singlet & strap a watermelon to your head go for it. We’ll be in the bay next door high-fiving every time Warner hits a six.
Where do I find a jacket?
We recommend Vinnies, the Salvo’s & other op shops. Grandpas closet can also be a goldmine for such gems. Wherever you can basically... One industrious Richie even got one tailored on a recent trip to Vietnam.
Does my suit have to match?
No. It would be great if they all did, but you're fine to mix your bone jacket & off-white pants for your own Richie stylings. But please abide by the dress code.
Is The Richies only for men?
No, we've had lots of great female cricket fans join our ranks... but you've got to be prepared to wear a wig, shirt & tie, and suit (no skirts, shorts etc), and of course uphold the high standards of Richie Benaud.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
All you need is your stella Richie suit & you're ready to go. You'll need to abide by Cricket Australia's terms & conditions of entry so no BYO drinks or anti social behaviour
Why Day 2?
Because it’s Richie Day! Day 2 is often the best day of cricket as you usually get to see both teams in action bowling & batting. We like to cheer on all good cricket (from the Australians & visiting teams) so Day 2 is perfect.
The fine print...
No jacket, no ticket! Strict dress regulations apply!
No anti social behaviour. Honour Richie Benaud, enjoy the cricket, & have a great day.
