The game will take place at ANZ Stadium at 20:10 (local time). Transportation disruptions, including traffic congestion, crowded conditions on public transportation, road closures, and checkpoints, and increased demand for taxis and lodging are expected. A heightened security presence is also likely in the vicinity of the stadium. Public demonstrations and associated disruptions are possible following the game, particularly in the event of a New South Wales victory.
The State of Origin is a best-of-three rugby tournament held annually between the New South Wales Blues and the Queensland Maroons. More than 82,000 people attended the 2018 game in Sydney. The series is currently tied 1-1.
Individuals in Sydney are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, crowded conditions, heightened security measures, and increased demand for taxis and lodging, and avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution.
