Sellout Showdown: Last Tickets To NRL Grand Final Snapped Up Just Hours Before Kickoff
The NRL grand final is a sellout.
NRL CEO Todd Greenberg has confirmed the last tickets have been sold for the clash between defending champions Sydney Roosters and Canberra at ANZ Stadium on Sunday night.
"This is a wonderful result for the game and highlights how much this contest has captivated the public," Greenberg said.
"Ever since this match-up was confirmed, the interest in the grand final has been extremely high.
"Both sets of supporters have gotten behind their teams which will create a fantastic atmosphere inside ANZ Stadium.
"The Raiders have captivated their own community along with many other fans as they look for their first Premiership since 1994 while the Roosters are attempting something historic -- the first back-to-back Premiers since 1992-93."
Pre-game celebrations start outside ANZ Stadium from 12 noon with gates opening at 1.15pm.
Direct train services from Central to Olympic Park will run every 10 minutes from 1pm, stopping at Redfern, Strathfield then Olympic Park. For fans coming from the west, trains will run from Penrith every 30 minutes from 1pm.
Sydney Olympic Park Major Event Buses start running every five to 10 minutes between 12 noon and 12.50pm depending on the route.
