Saturday 18 February will see the Western Sydney Wanderers and Sydney FC go head-to-head at ANZ Stadium in Australian football’s fiercest rivalry.

It's the game synonymous with the start of the NRL season – the annual Charity Shield fixture between NRL arch-rivals the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the St George Illawarra Dragons.

This season marks 35 years of the tradition fixture with both clubs celebrating the rich history of a game that holds a special place on the rugby league calendar.

It has helped keep more than 24 million fans dry since 1999, but ANZ Stadium’s existing roof is being replaced to immediately enhance the fan experience at major sporting and entertainment events.

More than 400 roof panels – or 4.5 hectares of roof sheeting – is currently being replaced as part of the Olympic stadium’s Facilities Management Maintenance Program.

February marks the beginning of a massive two months of concerts at ANZ Stadium, with Guns N’ Roses, Adele and Justin Bieber all taking to the stage.

More than 350,000 fans will flock to Sydney Olympic Park for the blockbuster concerts, kicking off with Legendary rockers Guns N’ Roses Not in this Lifetime Tour this Friday 10 and Saturday 11 February.
