Ticket sales have been strong for this game, so we encourage all General Admission Eels Members, and all GA ticket holders to arrive early to ensure entry. Pirtek Stadium is subject to capacity restrictions and Members and fans may be unable to enter once the ground reaches its legal capacity. General Admission Members can choose to upgrade to a reserved seat for the game from just $10.
For Members who have not yet received their Membership card, there will be Membership Services team Members located at Gates A/B and G/H from 4.15pm to help you on the night.
Getting to the Game:
The Eels encourage all Members and fans to take public transport to the game as parking is not available at Pirtek Stadium.
Parramatta train station is the nearest train station to the ground, and is only a short walk or shuttle bus ride away. Parramatta Bus interchange is located on Argyle Street opposite the Parramatta Train Station.
A free shuttle bus service runs from Argyle Street near Parramatta Station to Pirtek Stadium & returns to the station after the game, and a free shuttle bus also runs from Col Sutton Reserve in Baulkham Hills to Pirtek Stadium both pre & post game. This service will run at 15-20 minute intervals in the lead up to the game & again for 1 hour after the game on NRL Game Day.
For more information on these services, please call the football club office on 8843 0300.
Please remember that due to upgrades being carried out at Pirtek Stadium, there will be changes to the entry and exit procedures and to some services at the ground. The area surrounding Gate F will be partly fenced off.
All patrons with corporate tickets will be able to entre via Gate F, but there will also be fencing around the gate with staff directing you to Gates G/H, and the area directly outside the sheds and tunnel will not be accessible post-match.
The box office at Gate F will also be inaccessible, so ticket collection will be located at Gates A/B on the Eastern side and G/H on the Western side.
