A-League: Western Sydney Wanderers v Sydney FC

ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park

Gates open

Important event information

Sydney Olympic Park will be busy on Saturday with crowds heading to a Shania Twain concert and the A-League Sydney Derby at neighbouring venues at around the same time.

A-League fans are reminded their event ticket includes travel on trains and extra services will run to and from the precinct. If you have to drive, you'll need to pre-book parking, carpool where possible and allow extra travel time as delays are expected.

Valid pre-purchased match tickets include travel to and from ANZ Stadium on train services (bounded by Bomaderry, Scone, Goulburn, Bathurst and Dungog stations).

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 event 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.
