On Saturday 17 April, SCG gates open from 2.35pm ahead of first bounce from 4.35pm. Make the most of the day with plenty of local venues to enjoy before and after the match in short walking distance of the SCG. Fans are urged to arrive early to secure a parking space as traffic will be heavy on roads approaching the precinct and parking will be in high demand. You can find real-time traffic conditions at livetraffic.com.
If you’re catching public transport, plan ahead and allow plenty of extra travel time as services will be busy. Please note you'll need to use an Opal card or contactless payment method when travelling to and from the game on public transport. Register your details via the Opal website or app ahead of time.
Light rail services and express shuttle buses will run frequently between Central and Moore Park before and after the game, however please be patient as queues will be long especially after the final whistle, so consider walking instead via the Albert ‘Tibby’ Cotter Walkway and Devonshire Street to avoid the queues.
Fans travelling from the North Shore are reminded that due to trackwork in the city, T1 North Shore Line trains will end at Wynyard. Change at Wynyard for light rail services to Moore Park leaving from George Street. If you're travelling from the Inner West buses replace trains between Ashfield and Central so plan ahead and allow extra time to connect with trams to Moore Park.
In line with NSW Health advice, it’s strongly recommended to wear a face mask when travelling on transport services. Sit or stand on the ‘green dots’, when possible and check real-time capacity indicators where available. Remember you'll need to use an Opal card or contactless payment method when travelling to and from the event on public transport. Register your details via the Opal website or app ahead of time.
Additional queuing measures, signage and staff will be in place around Central Station, Moore Park transport hubs and the SCG 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.
