STADIUM: There are two entry points – the Northern Gate (closest to the pool end) and the Southern Gate. Your ticket will either say North or South. Each stand is then broken down into aisles which are marked. To see what you can and can’t bring into the stadium please click here. While the action on-court will be red-hot, the stadium itself can be quite cool. The air conditioning system works perfectly, so if you feel the cold, we suggest you bring something warm to wear. If you’re bringing a pram, please ensure to leave it in the front entry foyer on arrival – prams cannot be left in the aisle ways.
MERCHANDISE: Fans who want to look the part are in luck! GAME Clothing, our official merchandise partner, will be on location with the latest GAME goodies so you can deck yourself out in some fantastic gear.
ANL: Catch our sister team, Territory Storm on court, after our match at 5.45pm when they take on the Canberra GIANTS. Territory Storm (and maybe a few Lightning players) will be back on court at USC Stadium on Sunday 24 June at 11am. Entry for Storm’s Sunday ANL game is free.
FAN ENGAGEMENT: Lightning athletes will be available to sign autographs 20 minutes after the conclusion of the game. This will occur in the Hall of Fame breezeway near the athletics track end for 15 minutes only. Signings are limited to one item each and minimal photos. This is to ensure the players have their correct recovery time and fairness that everyone gets a chance to get a signature. We appreciate your assistance in ensuring we can get the balance right for everyone!
BROADCAST: Our round eight match will be broadcast live on Channel 9. All SSN matches will also be available live via subscription to the Netball Live app. This app also offers behind-the-scenes content and match highlights.
