I'd love to know who checks limits and ABVs but only this could happen in England...
In the wake of what has been described in as a “regrettable incident” during a one-day match against South Africa at Lord’s earlier this month, MCC has reiterated its alcohol policy.
‘The home of cricket’ as it is also known is the only cricket ground in the world (for first class and test cricket) where spectators can bring their own alcohol.
Spectators are allowed to bring one 75cl bottle of wine up to a strength of 18% or two pints of beer up to 6%. Any wines or beers in excess of those ABVs or in excess of those limits is confiscated. Similarly, visitors cannot leave the grounds to purchase or bring back more alcohol once they have entered. Any further drinks can be bought at one of Lord’s bars or restaurants.
