MORE than 100,000 people are expected in a buzzing Sydney Olympic Park precinct on both Good Friday and Easter Monday as two NRL blockbusters run concurrently with the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
The Easter Footy Fest at Accor Stadium will feature back-to-back blockbusters that traditionally draw two of the highest attendances of the NRL regular-season . . . Bulldogs v Rabbitohs on Good Friday 7 April and Wests Tigers v Parramatta Eels on Easter Monday 10 April.
Many fans will make it a huge day out by attending the Easter Show AND the NRL footy. Expect to see plenty of show bags at Accor Stadium over the Easter Footy fest weekend.
The Bulldogs are a rejuvenated club under new coach Cameron Ciraldo and armed with star players Josh Addo-Carr, Matt Burton, Viliame Kikau and Reed Mahoney.
The Bulldogs are building nicely but they will come up against a well-balanced Rabbitohs squad that features the likes of Latrell Mitchell, Cody Walker, Damien Cook and Cameron Murray.
Wests Tigers have played the Easter Monday game against Parra in the Eels’ own backyard of CommBank Stadium in recent years, but they are back at Accor Stadium for this year’s edition.
The Tigers have had their challenges to start the season but it is worth noting the Tigers knocked over the Eels in the corresponding game last year.
Parramatta finally got on the scoresheet for 2023 with a gutsy win over reigning premiers the Penrith Panthers, after they had been so close in their opening three games.
Make sure to take advantage of the fact that included in tickets for both games will be free return on public transport to and from Olympic Park. IF you are driving make sure you have pre-booked parking, as it is expected to sell-out.
WESTS Tigers have announced that children can gain free entry to the club’s blockbuster Easter Monday game against Parramatta Eels, with each full price adult ticket purchased eligible to redeem one (1) free junior ticket in the same category. See Full Conditions of Offer
Due to the big crowds expected in the precinct make sure you plan to arrive early at the Stadium, leaving plenty of time for the entry process and to find your seat.
