SAFETY AND SECURITY AT ANZ STADIUM

ACTIVITIES AND ENTERTAINMENT
A massive pre-Origin party is planned for Sydney Olympic Park, outside ANZ Stadium, with the festivities kicking off at 4pm on Wednesday 21ST June.
The focus of the party will be #TheSheds in Cathy Freeman Park, which will feature a monster marquee, live music, a 50m bar and visits by NSW Blues legends.
#TheSheds is open to all ticketholders but will double as one of the collection point for those electric blue wigs and T-shirts that are part and parcel of the Blacthy’s Blues match-day experience.
There will be 40 pop up cafes and food trucks in the precinct, as well as plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to partake around Sydney Olympic Park.
We hope you enjoy the blockbuster that is Holden State of Origin!
