Important travel advice

Light rail services run regularly to Moore Park a short walk from the SCG. Queues for light rail services may be long after the match so consider walking back to the city instead.

Remember it’s mandatory to wear a face mask when travelling on public transport, and you'll need to use an Opal card or contactless payment card/device when travelling to and from the event. Register your details via the Opal website or app ahead of time.

Parking is available near the SCG at the Entertainment Quarter car park, EP3 grass car park on Driver Avenue from Lang Rd and Sydney Boys & Girls High car park off Cleveland St. Traffic may be heavier than usual on roads approaching the precinct so allow extra travel time, you can find real-time traffic conditions at livetraffic.com.

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