Top Tips for Gameday

  • Tickets include travel on public transport (i.e. trains, regular and special event bus services, Sydney Ferries, and light rail services).
  • Pass-outs will be allowed on game day so make sure you get down early and don’t miss watching the women go head-to-head in the first ever Holden Women’s Premiership Grand Final.
  • Leave the car at home - with a large crowd expected, fans who have not pre-booked their parking are advised not to drive.
  • The ANZ Stadium precinct opens at 1.15pm so get in early to avoid queues, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the festivities.

We encourage you to travel light and only carry bags that are 30cm x 40cm in size.
