Great News for Eels Members and pre-purchased ticket holders planning to attend Easter Monday’s Blockbuster against Wests Tigers. Thanks to the support of ANZ Stadium and the NRL all ticketed memberships and pre-purchased tickets include integrated Major Event transport: entry and return travel on Sydney Trains, Sydney Olympic Park Major Event Bus Services, regular Sydney Buses (STA), Sydney Ferries services and Light Rail services.
Note, these major event bus services replace the “Eels Express” charter buses that the Eels will have in place for all other games at ANZ Stadium during 2017. Major event buses do, however, run along the same routes so ticket holders will receive the same service.
With the Royal Easter Show in full swing next door, all fans who have not pre-booked parking should not drive and instead take advantage of the additional direct public transport services that are included in the game ticket.
