There's plenty happening pre-game with a live DJ set, lights and pyro show as well as plenty of pre-game analysis. 


It's our club's call to arms. Make your own Panthers flag, bring one from home or buy one from the Panther Shop. The main thing is to show the players you're there cheering them on as they run onto Accor Stadium!


Collect your exclusive KFC Try Banner upon entering Accor Stadium. Arrive early as limited stock is available.


Car parks are expected to fill ahead of the day. Do not drive unless you have pre booked your parking. Pre book here to guarantee your spot.

Large crowds are expected to attend the Preliminary Final and other events in Sydney Olympic Park. Allow plenty of travel time with heavy traffic expected approaching Sydney Olympic Park. Make use of all available transport options using the Transport for NSW trip planner.
