IT promises to be one of the biggest event days in Sydney this year, with more than 140,000 people expected to flock to Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday 15 July to witness four blockbuster events.

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, if fans must drive they should consider parking at nearby major commuter station car parks at Seven Hills, Blacktown, Concord West or Thornleigh and then catching a train to Olympic Park to complete the trip.

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.
