St George Illawarra Dragons Red V Members and fans will enjoy train travel with pre-purchased tickets to all regular season games scheduled at ANZ Stadium this season.
Red V Members and fans will be able to take advantage of this great offer for both our home games against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs (Round 6) and Wests Tigers (Round 26).
The deal will include transport for Red V Members when the team plays at the venue as well as supporters with a pre-purchased ticket to the fixture on that same day.
Chief Executive Dave Smith said the partnership was a fantastic win for fans and part of the NRL’s commitment to improving the fan experience in 2015.
Smith said the NRL wanted to provide the best possible experience for members and fans – and that included their journey to and from the game.
“It will apply to all 26 club games being played at ANZ Stadium this season. So, when you buy a ticket in advance for any game at ANZ you get the transport thrown in,” said Smith.
“Not only is it going to save fans money but ideally it is going to reduce traffic congestion around the ground and give fans a much more enjoyable game-day experience.”
The 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 taking into account the demographics of the two competing teams (in cases when the two competing teams are Sydney based), and one direct train service when the opposing team is out of Sydney.
