Fans heading to the AFC Asian Cup Final between the Socceroos and South Korea at Stadium Australia tomorrow night are being encouraged to plan ahead and make the most of this massive occasion in Australian sport.
Minister for Sport and Recreation Stuart Ayres said all tickets to the match include travel on public transport with special train services and major event buses running to Sydney Olympic Park.
“The eyes of the sporting world will be focussed on Sydney where we’ll celebrate the biggest and most important night in Australian football history,” Mr Ayres said.
“Plenty of extra trains and buses will be heading to Sydney Olympic Park with travel on public transport included in match tickets.”
To help set the stage, there is a range of activities planned across the precinct to excite fans before kick-off including international street food, face painting and loads of free family-friendly entertainment from 4pm.
“With a sell-out crowd of over 80,000, fans planning to drive should expect heavy traffic and allow plenty of extra travel time,” Mr Ayres added.
“It’s going to be an incredible atmosphere with a large contingent of passionate South Korean fans set to converge on Stadium Australia.
“The entire nation is behind Ange Postecoglou and the Socceroos, so I encourage all Australians to get out your green and gold and cheer the boys home,” Mr Ayres concluded.
