The Cricket Victoria Foundation reserves the right to withhold picket numbers for the purposes of future signage or for other CitiPower Centre operational purposes. The Donor may select which picket number (1-2734) they would prefer their plaque to appear on. If the Picket has not already been selected or is unavailable due to permanent venue signage or other operational purposes, the Donor’s plaque will appear on it. Please note if a preferred number is already taken or reserved by the Cricket Victoria Foundation, the Cricket Victoria Foundation will work with the Donor to find an available Picket number for the plaque.
