Got this in a Sea Eagles email today: "BROOKVALE OVAL IS NOW SMOKE FREE Brookvale Oval is a now SMOKE FREE venue please respect all patrons by not smoking. There will be designated smoking areas OUTSIDE the venue. Patrons will need their ticket and willl be issued a pass out for exit and re-entry. No alcohol can be taken outside. Bins are provided in all designated areas to extinguish cigarettes. Designated Smoking Areas: North West (Federal Parade) & South East (Pine Street) We thank you for your co operation." And it's also mentioned on the venue info page here: http://www.mwse.com.au/default.aspx?s=venue-info I don't know how long this has been in effect, but it is about time. All big sporting venues should be smoke-free, and security needs to actively remind anyone who lights up of the rules. It's a freakin' FILTHY aspect of going to Brookie or anywhere smokers light up for that matter, and this is a great change. Going to games at Manly's fantastic rustic home ground, as well as Sea Eagles Club Membership is a whole lot more appealing now.
