The MCG will trial technology to improve queue times for food and drinks around the ground.

The ground will partner with WaitTime and launch the first intelligence system in the southern hemisphere that checks queues and crowds, and tells you when's quickest to grab something to eat or drink.

Dedicated screens will tell fans wait times and queues for nearby outlets.

The installation is underway and will be ready for the finals series.

So far, it will be limited to the ground and basement sections in the Great Southern Stand and the Olympic Stand.

MCC chief executive Stuart Fox said he hoped it would provide quicker service. 

“Queue times are a major challenge for large venues such as the MCG – when you have thousands of people trying to place an order at peak times you are always going to have some level of delay," he said on Friday.

“This system will not only help to inform MCG patrons about the expected wait time, but also show and direct them to other nearby outlets that they may not have previously considered, and which may result in a quicker service experience.”
