Getting to the Venue & Parking

  • Fans should consider all the available travel options ahead of time as public transport continues to operate at COVID safe capacities to maintain physical distancing across the network.
  • Fans are encouraged to drive with their group and park near the stadium. Plan to arrive early as traffic may be heavier than usual and parking will be in high demand.
  • If you have to catch public transport, plan ahead, aim to arrive early and allow plenty of extra travel time getting to and from the game. Remember to use your Opal card or a contactless payment method.
  • The closest station to WIN Stadium is Wollongong on the South Coast Line, however planned weekend trackwork is taking place on the South Coast Line during the event and buses replace trains between Waterfall and Central. Customers should allow plenty of extra time and plan ahead. 
  • Check real-time capacity indicators where available as you may need to wait for the next service with available capacity. Remember to practise physical distancing when on-board transport services and to look for the ‘green dots’ to find the safest places to sit or stand. Wearing a face mask while travelling on public transport is mandatory in Greater Sydney, Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Wollongong areas.
