If you’re planning on coming along to Saturday night’s Hyundai A League game between the Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory, we ask you note the following:
- As the Brisbane Roar looks to create its own piece of Australian sporting history this weekend, the indications are it will be a big crowd, meaning a large walk-up and potential delays at the box office for those who don’t pre-purchase tickets.
- It is critical to pre-purchase your ticket to ensure you avoid queues at the Stadium box office when you arrive and not risk missing any part of the game.
- Pre-purchasing your ticket also allows you to travel free on public transport (BT bus and rail) and enables the Stadium to better assess the levels of transport and catering services required.
- If you’re catching a train to the Stadium, be aware of rail track works happening across the weekend. Buses will replace train services between Cannon Hill and the City on the Cleveland line and between Yeerongpilly and the City on the Beenleigh and Varsity Lakes lines. Fans travelling between Beenleigh and Moorooka and between Varsity Lakes and Rocklea will have their services diverted into the City via Corinda and then directly to Milton station. This will only apply for coming to the game. For the return journey, you will need to go to Roma St station to catch trains home.
- If you are affected by these track works, expect it to take a little longer than usual to arrive at the Stadium. Plan to leave home earlier to ensure you don’t miss kick-off. Alternatively, consider catching a special bus shuttle service. The last of the special bus services from Carindale, Eight Mile Plains / Mt. Gravatt, Chermside and The Gap leave 20 minutes before the main game kick-off to ensure everyone arrives at the Stadium on time. Special bus services run regularly over a two hour period before kick-off to give everyone flexibility and spread the load.
