- With up to 80,000 Arsenal FC and Wanderers fans alongside nearly 20,000 AFL fans heading to Olympic Park at the same time on Saturday night, roads approaching the precinct will be very busy and car parks will fill early. Avoid getting caught up in traffic delays and get there early to enjoy the pre-match festivities.
- Other events are also being held in the precinct prior to kick off so parking will already be very limited. If you absolutely have to drive fans are strongly advised that they will need to pre-book parking to guarantee a space, carpool where possible and arrive early.
- There will be trackwork with buses replacing trains on the T3 Bankstown Line, between Liverpool, Lidcombe & Sydenham, on the T1 North Shore Line, between Hornsby & Wynyard and on the T1 Northern Line with between Epping & Chatswood. Plenty of rail replacement buses will run for crowds getting to and from the game.
- Match tickets include travel on all public transport and with plenty of express trains running to and from Olympic Park, travelling by transport will be the easiest and quickest way to get there. Sydney Olympic Park Major Event Buses will also be running on all routes, with additional services running on routes that travel through areas affected by trackwork. For more info on public transport services, visit transportnsw.info.
- As parking in the precinct will be limited, fans can consider parking at nearby major commuter station car parks at Seven Hills, Blacktown, Concord West or Thornleigh and catch a train to complete the trip to Olympic Park.

SECURITY AT ANZ STADIUM
ANZ Stadium management works closely with the NSW Police Force to identify any risks relating to the staging of its events.
There will be a high presence of police and security at the Arsenal FC v Western Sydney Wanderers match on Saturday 15 July.
Fans attending the match should arrive early to allow for a security screening process on each entry to the venue, which may include both bag and personal checks. Refusal by a patron to comply with a search request will result in the patron not being admitted into the Stadium.
Security checks will be carried out on all bags entering the Stadium. To help avoid delays, it’s best to leave your bag at home if you can. If you do bring a bag, it must be smaller than 30cm by 40cm.
To ensure the safety of customers, the Stadium is constantly reviewing its security procedures and is having ongoing dialogue with Police.
Patrons are requested to report any suspicious behaviour to Police or Stadium staff immediately.
Gates open at 6pm. Kick-off is at 8pm.
REPORT ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR
A patron text message service will operate for all events. If you experience any issues during an event, SMS 0419 403 360 with your issue and location.
