  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell and get tested for COVID-19
  • Limit the number and size of bags you bring and have any bags ready for inspection as you approach your entry gate. This will make security checks faster and safer.

  • Follow signage and directions of event day staff

  • Practice good hygiene at all times – keep up the hand washing/use sanitizer and always cough/sneeze into your elbow. Bring your own hand sanitiser.
  • Payment for food, beverages and car parking is by card only.    .
  • If you can, use the stairs or escalators. Lift usage will be restricted to people with mobility needs and a maximum of four people at any time.

  • Patrons with special access requirements seated in Eastern Stand level 5 will need to use the lift located near the Victor Richardson gates (between the Riverbank and Eastern stands).
  • At the end of the game, please remember to respect others and keep your distance from other people. As you leave, try to avoid touching handrails, doors and other touch points. Only use the Riverbank Footbridge if you are travelling by train. Please use other routes if heading into the city.
