Sydney Olympic Park is the place to be this Easter with ANZ Stadium to host five all-Sydney NRL blockbusters. With the Sydney Royal Easter Show booming next door in the Park it’s the perfect time for families to come out and enjoy the festivities.
The action kicks off on Friday 23 March, with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs playing host to their western Sydney rivals the Penrith Panthers at 6:00pm, coinciding with the first night of the 2018 Royal Easter Show.
The very next day it’s the much-anticipated NRL Round 3 Double-Header. The new initiative from the NRL will be the first regular-season double-header at ANZ Stadium since 2008.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs will take on the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles at 6:30pm, with a cracking clash between the Parramatta Eels and the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks to follow at 7:30pm.
The NRL Double-Header will precede the traditional Easter holiday NRL fixtures on Good Friday (30 March) and Easter Monday (2 April).
The two games consistently draw some the NRL’s biggest regular season crowds and will see ferocious rivals the South Sydney Rabbitohs and Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs square off again on Good Friday with the Wests Tigers and Parramatta Eels putting on a show for Easter Monday.
Reciprocal rights will be in play for both the Round 4 blockbusters, meaning members will receive entry rights to the games featuring their team.
With more than 100,000 fans in attendance per day at Sydney Olympic Park for the Sydney Royal Easter Show, patrons are encouraged to plan their transport arrangements by taking advantage of additional major event public transport services.
Fans can also pre-book parking with the Sydney Olympic Park Authority.
