Sydney Kings basketball fans are the big winners under a new public transport ticketing deal for their home games this season.
Tickets to all 14 Kings’ games at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney Olympic Park will cover travel by train and Sydney Metro services for the 2019-2020 NBL season.
“Fans catching trains (in the area bounded by Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst, Scone and Dungog stations) and Sydney Metro services won’t have to pay any extra to travel to home games – they’ll simply need to show their match ticket or membership pass to get on board,” Transport for NSW Coordinator General Marg Prendergast said.
“Having return travel included in tickets to games at Qudos Bank Arena will make it easier and more affordable for fans to get out and cheer on Sydney’s NBL stars,” Ms Prendergast said.
Sydney Kings CEO Chris Pongrass said: “We’re excited to have partnered with Transport for NSW to make Kings games even more accessible to our fans this season”.
“We are committed to providing an elite gameday experience for our fans and this experience starts with our fans travelling to and from Sydney Olympic Park. This ticketing program will go a long way to ensure that we fill Qudos Bank Arena for each game,” Mr Pongrass said.
The new arrangements will be in place in time for the Kings’ first home game against the Adelaide 36ers on Saturday 12 October 2019. Tip off is at 5:15pm and game is due to finish at 7:45pm.
The closest train station to Qudos Bank Arena is Olympic Park.
The quickest way to get there is to catch one of the direct train services that leave Lidcombe every 10 minutes. Once you arrive, it’s a five minute walk to Qudos Bank Arena.
