Moore Park Major Events on Saturday

This saturday it will be very busy at Moore Park with both a AFL game between the Sydney Swans and the Brisbane Lions at the SCG as well as the more important and highly antipacted A-League Grand Final between Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory at the neighbouring Allianz Stadium. Over 80000 fans are expected to the two matches and therefore the precinct will be busy. It is estimated that 40000 fans will attend each individual match.

The worst is expected to be around 4pm. This is 15 minutes after the expected finishing time fo the AFL match and 1 hour prior to the start of the A-League grand final. Car parking and traffic will be an absolute nightmare as AFL fans leave and A-League fans arrive.

It is highly recommended to fans to use Pubic Transport. Expresses buses will run from Central from 9:30am until 1pm and again from 2:30pm until 5pm. These services will return to Central between 3:30pm and 5pm and again between 18:45pm until 1 hour after the conclusion of the match. Regular buses also run to and from the City and South East from Anzac Parade

In addition, walking to and from Central particular around 4pm is highly recommmed. Walkers should go via the Tibby Cotter bridge and Devonshire Street.

AFL fans must pay with an Opal Card for all Public Transport use on the day. A-League fans will receive free public transport as part of a deal between FFA and the NSW Governement providing free transport to all A-League matches played in NSW.
