NRL fans are in for a bumper year at ANZ Stadium with confirmation today of a host of exciting Fans First initiatives put in place by the Bulldogs, Rabbitohs and Eels for the 2019 Telstra Premiership season.
Return train travel to Olympic Park will be included in all tickets to regular-season Bulldogs, Rabbitohs and Eels matches at ANZ Stadium, with no additional cost for fans and NRL Club Members.
In another win for fans, the Bulldogs and Rabbitohs have confirmed pricing for all pre-purchased tickets in 2019, with tickets starting from just $10 for juniors, $20 for adults and $40 for family tickets.
Bulldogs and Rabbitohs Club Members will also benefit from Reciprocal Membership Rights when they are the away team at ANZ Stadium (Rounds 6 and 22).
To top it off, ANZ Stadium will continue their popular Fans First food initiatives. Starting this weekend, fans visiting ANZ Stadium can enjoy a classic sausage roll for just $2.50, running for the month of March up until, and including, the annual Good Friday Bulldogs v Rabbitohs clash.
NRL Head of Football Todd Greenberg said this was another positive example of stakeholders and Clubs working together to make it easier and more affordable for Members and supporters to get to the footy and to enjoy the live match experience.
“ANZ Stadium will again witness history throughout 2019 and today’s announcement of these fantastic initiatives is another win for Club Members and supporters,” Mr Greenberg said.
“I am delighted that the clubs have worked with the Stadium to implement a very popular travel initiative, with thousands of fans taking up the train travel offer and experiencing some of the best rugby league games live.”
ANZ Stadium Managing Director Daryl Kerry congratulated the Bulldogs, Rabbitohs and Eels – in conjunction with the NSW Government and Sydney Trains – for supporting the transport initiative that will make it easier and more affordable for fans to get to games at ANZ Stadium throughout the 2019 season.
“There will be a feast of rugby league action at ANZ Stadium in season 2019, starting with Bulldogs v Eels this Sunday and it's great news for the fans that train travel is included in tickets and Memberships to all premiership games at the Stadium this season,” Mr Kerry said.
The integrated train travel will apply to the entire Sydney Trains network and the NSW TrainLink intercity network. That includes fans travelling from as far away as Bathurst, the Blue Mountains, Hunter Region (from Dungog/Scone), Bomaderry, and Goulburn.
Sydney Trains has also agreed, whenever possible during the NRL regular season, to provide two direct train services to Sydney Olympic Park when the two competing teams are Sydney based, and one direct train service when the opposing team is out of Sydney.
