IT promises to be one of the biggest event days in Sydney this year, with more than 140,000 people expected to flock to Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday 15 July to witness four blockbuster events.

The home of major events in Sydney, Olympic Park was built to host monster crowds and unforgettable days, and Super Saturday promises to deliver.

More than 80,000 fans will pack into ANZ Stadium to see English Premier League giants Arsenal play Western Sydney Wanderers, 20,000+ AFL fans are expected at Spotless Stadium for GWS Giants v Sydney Swans, 24,000 fans will enjoy Disney On Ice at Qudos Bank Arena, with another 7000 at Sydney Showground for The Man Cave Experience.

Head here for all the event and transport info you need for Arsenal v Western Sydney Wanderers

Tickets to the Arsenal clash include return travel on all public transport services and with express trains running from Central and Blacktown every 7-8 minutes, travelling by public transport will be the easiest and quickest way to get to Olympic Park. Major Event Buses will also be running on all routes.

As parking in the precinct will be limited to pre-booked only, if fans must drive they should consider parking at nearby major commuter station car parks at Seven Hills, Blacktown, Concord West or Thornleigh and then catching a train to Olympic Park to complete the trip.

A mammoth pre-event party is planned from 4pm on Super Saturday, with the precinct, ANZ Stadium and surrounding buildings lit in Gunners red, an Arsenal Fan Zone with a Club Museum – featuring a photo opportunity with the FA Cup and the Invincibles’ Cup from 5pm - an Eat Street with 30+ international-themed food stalls and cafes, live bands and roving entertainment and soccer clinics for the kids in Cathy Freeman Park.

Event goers should plan to arrive early via public transport and make the most of this unforgettable day at Sydney Olympic Park.
