It promises to be one of the biggest event days in Sydney this year, with more than 135,000 people expected to flock to Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday 15 July to witness four blockbuster events.
The home of major events in Sydney, Olympic Park was built to host monster crowds and unforgettable days, and Super Saturday promises to deliver.
More than 80,000 fans will pack into ANZ Stadium to see English Premier League giants Arsenal play Western Sydney Wanderers, 24,000 fans will enjoy Disney On Ice at Qudos Bank Arena, 20,000+ AFL fans are expected at Sydney Showground for GWS Giants v Sydney Swans, with another 7000 at the same venue for The Man Cave Experience.
Tickets to the Arsenal clash include return travel on all public transport services and with express trains running from Central and Blacktown every 7-8 minutes, travelling by public transport will be the easiest and quickest way to get to Olympic Park. Major Event Buses will also be running on all routes.
As parking in the precinct will be limited to pre-booked only, fans should consider parking at nearby major commuter station car parks at Seven Hills, Blacktown, Concord West or Thornleigh and then catch a train to Olympic Park to complete the trip.
A mammoth pre-event party is planned for Super Saturday, with the precinct and surrounding buildings lit in Gunners red, an Eat Street with 30+ international-themed food stalls and cafes, live bands and roving entertainment, and the FA Cup on display for fans to take selfies with.
Event-goers should plan to arrive early via public transport and make the most of this wonderful day at Sydney Olympic Park.
- With over 80,000 fans on the way to see Arsenal v Wanderers, and another 55,000 people in the Sydney Olympic Park precinct for other events, fans are strongly encouraged to plan ahead, take advantage of any public transport included in tickets for some of the events, arrive early and allow extra time for the security screening process.
- Follow directional signage when you arrive at the Park as road closures are in place for the public safety.
- Travel on public transport is included in your ticket to the Arsenal game so avoid delays and make use of the additional trains and Olympic Park major event buses running to and from the venue. Plan your trip at transportnsw.info or call 131 500.
- If you must drive, car parks will fill, so it is vital you pre-book your parking here: www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au/prebook
