FIVE massive Sydney events are set to roll out at ANZ Stadium in the run home to year’s end, with the winter footy codes giving way to global superstars, family entertainment and world-class round-ball football action.

The 2018 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final, which attracted a huge crowd of 82,688 to ANZ Stadium on Sunday 30 September, also brought to a close an intense season of major winter sports action.

But the BIG events keep coming at ANZ Stadium, with five major sports and entertainment events all expected to draw crowds of 40,000-plus to the Sydney Olympic Park precinct.

The upcoming blockbusters are:

  • Monster Jam – the most intense family motorsports entertainment experience on the planet – at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 13 October;
  • Global superstar Taylor Swift and her reputation Stadium Tour show on Friday 2 November;
  • Australian football farewelling our greatest Socceroo Tim Cahill when the Socceroos play Lebanon at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday 20 November;
  • Rock Hall Of Fame legends Bon Jovi returning to ANZ Stadium on Saturday 8 December;

Expect the unexpected at Monster Jam, the family entertainment spectacular that rolls out at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 13 October.

The ANZ Stadium arena will be turned in to a giant dirt track created with the sole purpose of pushing perfectly engineered, larger-than-life trucks and their star drivers to the limit.

It’s adrenaline-charged, high-flying, four-wheel excitement at its best.

Ten-time Grammy award winner, Taylor Swift, is bringing her reputation Stadium Tour to ANZ Stadium on Friday 2 November.

The pop goddess will be returning to the scene of her phenomenal 2015 show that saw more than 76,000 fans turn out for one of the Stadium’s iconic concert moments.

Get ready for one of the hottest tours on the planet in 2018!

The great Tim Cahill, who announced his retirement after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, will be recognised for his contribution to the sport when the Socceroos meet Lebanon in an international friendly at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday 20 November. 

ANZ Stadium has been the scene of some of Cahill’s finest performances during his 107-cap career – from the historic night against Uruguay in 2005 to last year’s sudden-death triumphs over Syria and Honduras that took the Socceroos to the World Cup.

It promises to be the ultimate farewell for Cahill. NSW has a vibrant Australian Lebanese community (165,000 Australians of Lebanese heritage live in Sydney alone) and the game is set to be a colourful celebration of football and culture.
