NRL Finals: Transport information

Fans travelling to ANZ Stadium to be part of the excitement of Week 1 Telstra Premiership Finals matches will have the cost of public transport to and from the game included in their match ticket.

The integrated ticketing offer is a partnership between the NRL, ANZ Stadium and the NSW Government. Due to venue capacity, Junior Passes will also gain entry to Week 1 Telstra Premiership Finals Series matches at ANZ Stadium.

ANZ Stadium Managing Director Daryl Kerry said: “There’s a feast of footy action in Sydney this weekend and we’ll have two fantastic NRL games at ANZ Stadium, on Friday night and Sunday afternoon.

Watch every game of the NRL Finals Series LIVE from just $5.49 per week on your iPhone and iPad or $14.99 per month on your Android Smartphone

“The quality of football and the event experience are ultimately what brings the fans, but direct services to Sydney Olympic Park and integrated ticketing provide additional incentives to travel to the stadium.

“Almost 1.2 million sports fans have already visited ANZ Stadium this year and we’re expecting good crowds both for Rabbitohs v Storm and then Bulldogs v Knights in the first round of NRL finals.”

Fans looking to pre-book parking in the P1 car park are advised to log on here.

This service enables fans to print out their parking passes at home.  

Please note that special event bus services will be available from Circular Quay and Wynyard from 3pm for fans heading to the Roosters v Sea Eagles match. 

This service is not included in the ticket price and fans must purchase tickets to travel on those services.

Please also note that due to trackwork buses will replace trains between Newcastle and Central on Sunday.
