As Australia’s greatest interstate sporting rivalry continues, NSW Police are urging footy fans to keep the competition family-friendly and behave responsibly ahead of this weekend’s grand finals.
The Newcastle Knights will be battling for back-to-back premierships, at Accor Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park, as they take on the Gold Coast Titans in the NRLW Grand Final, kicking off at 3.55pm tomorrow (Sunday 1 October 2023).
The Penrith Panthers will follow, in an attempt to carve their name into the history books in pursuit of a premiership three-peat, taking on the Brisbane Broncos in the NRL Grand Final, scheduled for a 7.30pm kick-off.
Police will conduct a high-visibility operation, comprising officers from across the South West Metropolitan Region assisted by specialist police to ensure the safety and security of officials, players and the anticipated 80,000-plus spectators who will be in attendance.
Gates will open at 1pm for preliminary matches and entertainment, and those attending are urged to arrive early.
Security guards will assist police in targeting troublemakers, anti-social behaviour, and alcohol-related crime at the stadium, and to ensure all fans get to and from the stadium safely.
Assistant Commissioner Stuart Smith said the police operation aims to ensure everyone’s Grand Final experience is enjoyable, memorable and free from any anti-social or criminal behaviour.
“While we expect the passion and emotions of the spectators to be heightened, please remember to be considerate of others and cheer on your teams respectfully,” Assistant Commissioner Smith said.
“Those who choose to act inappropriately will be dealt with promptly; this could mean ejection from the stadium and/or banning notices, with fines, or even criminal charges.
“Fans need to be considerate of others during post-match celebrations and, whether your team wins or loses, there is no excuse for violence, intimidation, or anti-social behaviour.” Assistant Commissioner Smith said.
As temperatures are expected to soar this weekend, coupled with a try-scoring-fest, Assistant Commissioner Smith urges game attendees to drink responsibly, as we don’t want anyone missing out on the live action.
“To everyone celebrating across the state, please ensure you are drinking plenty of water, wear sunscreen and seek shade during the day.
“Drink responsibly, know your limits, and keep an eye on your friends,” Assistant Commissioner Smith said.
To assist in avoiding disruption and disappointment, spectators are urged to plan their trip ahead of time and utilise public transport services. All tickets include travel to and from Olympic Park on public transport.
Motorists driving to Sydney Olympic Park are reminded to book their parking in advance and allow plenty of travel time and expect significant delays, particularly around the venue before and after the match.

It’s a warm, verging on a hot Friday morning at Accor Stadium and the dignitaries are fanning themselves with the event program and sweating in their suits. There are no complaints, though. Not today. For they’re here to honour a legend.
Chris Minns, the Premier of NSW, is here, with Jodie Harrison, Minister for Women, and Steve Kamper, Minister for Sport.
There’s David Gallop and Kerrie Mather, respectively chairman and chief of Venues NSW.
There’s Australia’s Olympic chief Matt Carroll and AOC President John Coates in a (wise) Panama hat.
Two-time Olympian Patrick Johnson is here. He once ran 9.93 for the hundred and remains Australia’s fastest-ever man.
Bruce McAvaney is here, too – he didn’t run for his country. But he could call sport for Australia.
And one famous Monday evening on September 25, 2000, he did, when upwards of 20 million eyeballs tuned in to see a famous hot lap of Stadium Australia.
Such was – and remains – the pulling power of our guest of honour, Australia’s 400-metre Sydney 2000 Olympics champion Catherine Astrid Salome Freeman, OAM, who’s here with her family to witness the unveiling of the Cathy Freeman Stand on the eastern side of Accor Stadium.
Typically for Freeman, she’s a touch non-plussed at all the fuss.
“I’m just a Kuku Yalanji woman, a Birri Gubba woman, who’s just taking each stride, doing my best to be me, making the most of life and opportunities, drawing inspiration from my family, from stories, from learning along the way,” she tells interviewer and close friend, McAvaney.
“But this is such an incredible day today.
“I’m so honoured, I’m almost speechless.”
McAvaney assures her: “There won’t be a person in Australia that’s not smiling today, not one.”
There wasn’t one 23 years ago to the day when Freeman emerged in a fireproof white bodysuit to light the Olympic flame at the Sydney 2000 Opening Ceremony.
Ten days later, her win in the Olympic 400 metre final was the joyous pinnacle of the greatest feel-good fortnight Australia’s ever known.
Freeman’s dash today, like Shane Warne’s ‘Ball of the Century’, John Aloisi’s penalty goal and even Sam Kerr’s wonder strike against England, almost gets better with age.
Eyes turn to the Great Southern Screen, all 120 metres long of it, to watch a mash-up of vision of that famous race.
There are wide angles, close-ups, panoramas. McAvaney’s words are plastered 10 metres high across the screen.
And it’s like you’re back there watching afresh. Your arm hairs prickle. And you’re cheering her on: Go on Cathy. Go our girl.
We see her shoot out the blocks, streaking around the track in that green-and-gold space-suit.
And there she goes, and she’s flying, leaning into the corners like a Ducati, equal parts pace, grace and power.
And you think: Man, she could move, Cathy Freeman. Her running style was beautiful. It seemed effortless.
It was the best in the world that fine night in Sydney, and we roared her home on the final turn and as she drew away in the last 40, 30, 20, 10 … gold.
It took effort, of course. That was plain to see after she’d crossed the line and sat on her bum on the track, the suit’s hood off her head, arms resting on her knees, breathing like a bellows, oxygen like balm for her lungs.
Soon enough, though, she was up and dancing about, waving the flags of her country and of her people, this shy country kid, beaming for Australia, for her mum and dad and family, for herself.
What a night. What a ride she took us on, so many years in the making.
As McAvaney explains on stage, since running second in Atlanta to arch-rival Marie-José Pérec – the Frenchwoman who fled Sydney after seeing building-sized posters of Freeman on the skyscrapers outside her Darling Harbour hotel room – Freeman won 43 of her 44 races, the one loss in Oslo in ’98 when she was injured.
She was all we could talk about. For four years we looked forward to the 400-metre final, Freeman versus Perec versus the world.
McAvaney asks about her confidence on the night.
“In terms of percentages, it was mainly confidence,” she replies. “But there was also that human component, a feeling of fragility, of self-doubt.
“Talking to Warwick on the way here – sorry, Warwick, our driver – you just don’t know what’s going to happen in big sporting moments. Those not expected to do well can do well. And vice versa.
“There’s a side that’s deep within. I said to my coach before I left him, will you still love me if I don’t win.
“There’s a duality.”
Then she emerged onto the arena where 112,000 people roared her name.
And she flicked the switch. She moved from Cathy the barefoot kid from housing commission in Mackay to Cathy Freeman: athlete; arse-kicker; animal.
She was in her realm.
“Once I got out there and I was in my element, as sports people are, and I’m at the start line … you just switch on and the competitive juices start flowing,” she tells McAvaney. “And you’re so determined and very clear on what you need to do.
“I won’t swear – but you get very aggressive.
“I was born to be an Olympic champion.”
And now, after a public process to name Australia’s greatest female athlete, the great state of NSW has named a great eastern stand after her.
Freeman is the first woman so-honoured in NSW.
Premier Minns tells media: “Everybody remembers where they were when Cathy Freeman produced her historic 400-metre race to win gold for Australia at the Sydney Olympics.
“I want the next generation of young girls to watch sport at this stadium, looking up at the Cathy Freeman Stand, thinking about their own sporting dreams.”

Once upon a time, so the story goes, a family of South Sydney Rabbitohs supporters owned a pet rabbit that they called ‘Ron Coote’.
The animal was named after the champion NSW, Australia and Rabbitohs lock and captain who won four premierships with South Sydney in a storied 208-game career.
Outside John Sattler and the Immortal player and coach Clive Churchill there was no more popular Rabbits man than the great Ron Coote.
Yet when he left Redfern at the end of 1971 to join arch-rivals Eastern Suburbs Roosters, the family wrote Coote a letter informing him that so disappointed were they with his transfer that they had cooked and eaten the rabbit.
It was one of the more cordial reactions.
Coote was cursed by Souths fans. And not just sworn at but actually cursed. A lady who identified as a gypsy declared that following Coote’s ‘betrayal’ of the Bunnies he would forever be blighted by bad luck.
Coote would go on to win two premierships with the Roosters, buy into a new restaurant franchise called “McDonald’s”, and co-found the Men of League (today the Family of League) Foundation.
And on Friday night, the Rabbitohs and Roosters will play for the Ron Coote Cup.
As ever, there is much more than just two premiership points to play for.
The neighbouring territories have long enmity about ‘stealing’ one another’s players. They argue today about who’s the ‘Silvertail’ and who the ‘Fibro’.
They half-joke that north-south running Coogee Bay Road is ‘The Gaza Strip’.
It is the game’s greatest and most intense rivalry.
And Friday night’s game promises to be as intense as any played in the 115 year history of matches between the Foundation Clubs from 1908.
Because on Friday night at Accor Stadium both clubs’ seasons are on the line.
The Roosters are in 10th position on the NRL ladder on 30 points. The Rabbitohs are in eighth position – also on 30 points.
If the Roosters lose, they’re gone.
If the Rabbitohs lose, they’re gone.
And thus tickets are selling quickly with upwards of 35,000 fans expected in.
On a sad note, pre-match both teams will observe a minute’s silence for much-loved Rabbitohs player No.1100 and 2014 premiership winner Kyle Turner.
It’s also Rabbitohs’ Old Boys Day, when the club’s past players form a guard of honour as the first grade side charges onto the field.
And then, post-match, when the gladiators have bled their last, the winning captain will be presented with the Ron Coote Cup.
And presenting it? None other than Ron Coote.
Doesn’t seem that curse worked.

Blinding lights! Diamond certified and award-winning artist The Weeknd is locked in for Sydney’s Accor Stadium on Friday 24 November as part of his hugely successful After Hours Til Dawn Tour.
One of the hottest artists on the planet today, Abel Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd) will be joined on tour by special guests Mike Dean and Chxrry22, promoter Live Nation Entertainment has announced.
Tickets for the blockbuster Sydney show go on sale to the General Public at 12noon Friday 1 September, with pre-sales commencing Friday 25 August.
The tour celebrates The Weeknd’s 2020 album After Hours (its hit single Blinding Lights was named the new No.1 Billboard Hot 100 song of all time, surpassing Chubby Checker’s 1960 hit The Twist), as well as his critically-acclaimed album Dawn FM, which was released January 2022.
The After Hours Til Dawn Tour has been breaking attendance records around the world.
The tour recently broke London Stadium’s attendance record with 160,000 concertgoers across two nights. In Milan, The Weeknd sold over 159,000 tickets, making him the first artist to sell out two nights at Ippodromo La Maura.
In Paris, thousands of fans without tickets gathered outside the stadium to dance and partake regardless.
The next leg of The Weeknd’s celebrated global stadium tour will kick off Monday, November 20 in Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium, with stops across Australia and New Zealand.
United Nations World Food Program Goodwill Ambassador Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye will again partner with the U.N World Food Program to contribute funds from this next leg of the tour to the XO Humanitarian Fund, which supports the organisation’s response to the unprecedented global hunger crisis. More than $1 million was raised for the fund via ticket sales during the recently wrapped European leg of the tour.
The fund also raised money during the North American leg of the tour through ticket sales, proceeds from an exclusive tour T-shirt, and a $500,000 donation directly from The Weeknd.
The Weeknd’s corporate partners, tour venues, World Food Program USA board of directors and supporters also stepped up to contribute, as well as tour sponsor Binance, which contributed US$2 million to the fund. The first grant of $2 million will help provide emergency food and nutrition assistance to the most food-insecure regions of Ethiopia.
The After Hours Til Dawn Tour is brought to you by Binance, revolutionising the live entertainment industry with cutting-edge Web 3.0 technology. Binance users in Australia and New Zealand will have access to a special ticket presale for select shows, while supplies last.

NSW Minister for Jobs and Tourism John Graham, Minister for Sport Steve Kamper, Australian Rugby League Commission Chairman Peter V’landys AM and NRL CEO Andrew Abdo have announced the 2023 NRL and NRLW Telstra Premiership Grand Finals will be played at Accor Stadium on Sunday 1 October.
The ARLC and NSW Government have struck a one-year deal for this year’s Grand Finals, with continuing discussions to take place for matches beyond 2023.
Mr V’landys said it was important to give fans certainty.
“We have worked closely with the NSW Government to reach an agreement for the 2023 Grand Final,” Mr V’landys said.
“We are respectful of the new Labor Government’s priorities at the moment and their focus on the State budget, which is why we have agreed a short-term deal which gives all stakeholders certainty about this year’s Grand Final, and provides all parties the time required to continue discussions about a long-term partnership,” he said.
“I’d like to thank Premier Chris Minns and Ministers Steve Kamper and John Graham who have taken a pragmatic approach to reaching an agreement for this year’s Grand Final. We have a great partnership with the NSW Government and we are grateful for their support of rugby league.”

“The NRL and NRLW Grand Finals represent the pinnacle of the best rugby league competitions in the world,” Mr Abdo said.
“This year’s NRL Premiership has been the closest in decades, delivering the fans the best sports entertainment experience in Australia. The closeness of the competition and unpredictability of results, along with four new teams in an expanded NRLW competition, has given fans of all Clubs an opportunity to see their team on Grand Final day.
“In addition to the Grand Finals at Accor Stadium, we will also have a Fan Festival in Sydney, which will be a great celebration of Rugby League and an opportunity for fans to show their colours and celebrate their team.
“We want to thank the NSW Government for again supporting the NRL and NRLW Grand Finals and working in partnership to deliver a week-long celebration of Rugby League in Sydney.”

The British & Irish Lions will tour Australia in 2025 and play the Wallabies in a Test match at Accor Stadium on Saturday 2 August – a potential Tour decider at Sydney Olympic Park in front of 80,000-plus fans.
The past two Lions Tours have generated huge international interest and both came down to a series finale at Accor Stadium.
The Lions, led by the world’s most-capped rugby player Alun Wyn Jones, won the 2013 series 1-2 after the great John Eales had led Australia to an unforgettable 2-1 series win here in 2001.
The British & Irish Lions Tour 2025 will feature nine fixtures, starting in Perth on 28 June 2025 and includes a match against NSW Waratahs at Allianz Stadium on Saturday 5 July 2025.
Accor Stadium Members should standby forThe British & Irish Lions Tour 2025 update.

Rugby Australia and The British & Irish Lions have revealed the full fixture list for one of the largest and most prestigious Rugby events in the world, the 2025 Lions Tour.
The Tour will see the Lions play nine matches in Australia, with three Tests against the Wallabies, and six Tour games around the country – including a match against an invitational team of players from Australia and New Zealand in Adelaide.
The British & Irish Lions combine the best players from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, touring either Australia, New Zealand or South Africa every four years – meaning the Lions only visit Australia every 12 years.
The travelling festival is expected to attract 40,000 international visitors to Australia, who will tour around the country and deliver a strong economic outcome for all the participating cities, states, and territories.
The Lions Tour will be the first of the major Rugby events to visit Australia as part of the golden decade of Rugby; the 2025 Lions Tour will be followed by major Rugby events being hosted in Australia including the 2027 Rugby World Cup for men, the 2029 Rugby World Cup for women, and Rugby Sevens at the 2032 Brisbane Olympics.
Today’s announcement took place in Brisbane, exactly two years before the first Test between the Wallabies and Lions at Suncorp Stadium in the Queensland capital.
The second Test will be at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 26 July, with the final Test match taking place at Accor Stadium in Sydney on Saturday 2 August.
The Tour will kick off in Australia on 28 June in Perth, with the Western Force hosting the visitors at Optus Stadium, before the Lions travel to the east coast to take on the Reds at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on 2 July.
The tourists head south the following weekend with clashes against the Waratahs at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on 5 July and the ACT Brumbies at GIO Stadium in Canberra on 9 July. Adelaide Oval will host the final Tour game before the first Test, a marquee match-up between the Lions and an invitational Australia-New Zealand combined team on 12 July in what shapes up to be something of a “fourth Test” on the Tour.
