Important travel advice

With stadium capacities increasing, fans are encouraged to consider all the available travel options ahead of time as public transport continues to operate at a reduced capacity to maintain physical distancing across the network.

Fans are encouraged to drive and use the available car parks within walking distance of the stadium including Driver Avenue grass car parks and the Entertainment Quarter car park. 

If you’re catching public transport fans are reminded to plan ahead by checking real-time capacity indicators where available as you may need to wait for the next service with available physical distancing capacity. 

Additional light rail services and shuttle buses will run between Central and Moore Park however due to reduced capacity, queues for public transport services may be lengthy so allow extra time or consider walking between Central and Moore Park via Devonshire St and the Albert ‘Tibby’ Cotter Walkway to minimise wait times for transport services.

Wearing a face mask while travelling on public transport is also strongly recommended. Fans are encouraged to keep their face masks on until they reach their seats inside the stadium.

Additional measures and staff will be in place around transport hubs and venues to safely manage crowds arriving and leaving the game so be patient, practise physical distancing while in queues and follow the directions of staff on site.
