Important event information

Large crowds are expected in the Moore Park precinct on Saturday 27 October for the first Sydney Derby to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

A-League fans are encouraged to take advantage of public transport included in their match ticket and leave the car at the home as traffic will be heavy and parking will fill quickly.

Valid pre-purchased tickets to the A-League: Sydney FC v Western Sydney Wanderers match include travel to and from the SCG on:

  • Train services (bounded by Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst, Scone and Dungog stations)
  • Moore Park special event shuttle buses
  • Regular bus services
  • Sydney Ferries services
  • Light rail services

Remember to keep your event ticket safe for your return journey or you'll need to use your Opal card, as you must have a valid ticket when travelling on public transport. Your ticket is valid on public transport until 04:00 the following day.

Note: an additional station access fee applies for travel to or from Domestic and International Airport stations. Your event ticket does not include the access fee, so if you're travelling from these stations you'll need to pay the train station access fee.

From Central you can change for a shuttle bus service leaving from Eddy Avenue or walk to Moore Park via Foveaux Street or Devonshire Street and the Albert 'Tibby' Cotter Walkway.
