LAST TIME WE MET: Round 2, 2018 Firebirds 55 d Lightning 52

Fair dinkum, we’re hosting an Aussie round thanks to Match Day partner Sunshine Coast Council with help from our friends at Aussie World! There will be stacks of fun to be had and a whole lot of Aussie themed goodness. There will be giveaways from Aussie World PLUS the first 120 people through the gate will receive a FREE Telstra TV – how good is that?!

PARKING: Free public parking is available in the Claymore Road carpark or throughout the rest of the University Campus. Carparks 12A, 12B & 12C are closed to public parking, noting accessible parking is available in carpark 12C. The Chancellor College carpark is available for Nissan cars (first 15 onsite) and this is where the taxi and drop off zone is located.

TICKETING & ACCREDITATION: Ticketing will have a marquee external to the Activation Zone entry for any ticket collections. No tickets will be available for sale at the gate.

ENTRY: Entry to the Stadium will be via the Activation Zone, which will open at 11.30am. Security will undertake a bag check prior to being scanned into the Activation Zone – Members and fans can then enjoy the Zone’s activities (weather dependant)!  To see what you can and can’t bring into the stadium please click here.

ACTIVATION ZONE: Take a walk through the Goombuckar Bus to learn about the Indigenous culture within our region, watch a fire dance unfold in front of your eyes and then see if you can jump as high as the Lightning team at the USC tent. With thanks to league sponsor Suncorp, you can visit the #TeamGirls marquee and make a charm bracelet or post a photo to social media. If all of that isn’t enough, you can also have your face painted, enjoy a bite to eat and finish with a dance off against Lucy Lightning and the Aussie World Mascots Jake and Tilly! Activation’s include; Hot 91.1 • Sunshine Coast Council • USC • Nissan • Suncorp •

Make sure you grab your FREE Suncorp team poster, as well as Thundersticks from USC and retractable banners from Sunshine Coast Council.

Don’t forget, the first 120 people through the gate will receive a FREE Telstra TV!

FOOD & BEVERAGES: A variety of hot and cold food will be available for purchase at the venue, including Raw Energy (inside), Good Food Fellas, BBQ, Gourmet Dumplings, Calamari Canteen, Italian Street Food, Donut Kitchen and Hot Baristas. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages (including bottled water) are also available for purchase from the public bar in the Activation Zone (18+ photo identification must be shown to purchase alcoholic beverages).

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.

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 9 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.
