Beside barbeques, supermodels and Vegemite, sport is something Australians really excel at. For a truly antipodean sporting experience, the annual Bledisloe Cup is not to be missed. Why not book your visit to Sydney to coincide with some of the most popular Rugby Union matches of the year?
The cup pits two of the greatest rugby playing nations against each other- Australia and New Zealand. A Bledisloe Cup match is an opportunity to witness world-class rugby in prestigious sporting venues in both countries, including Sydney’s ANZ Stadium- the second largest stadium in Australia.
In Sydney, 2015 will also be an exciting year for the sport of netball. The first Netball World Cup (previously named the World Netball Championships) will be held next August in Sydney, Australia. This premier international title has been held by Australia since the 2007 tournament, so the 2015 matches are guaranteed to be a nail biting experience.
For visitors to Sydney who love a good competitive game, cheer Australia to victory at the Bledisloe Cup and Netball World Cup.
Traveling to the Game
If you want to start planning now for your trip to the next Bledisloe Cup match or the 2015 Netball World Cup, you can take advantage of the transportation services that Sydney provides throughout the year for major sporting event attendees. Since the traffic to and from your hotel will be pretty congested, it’s recommended that you choose which transportation service works best for you in terms of time and money. Public transport options in Sydney include:
- Sydney Ferry
- Light rail
Alternatively, why not ask the team at your hotel to assist in booking a taxi. Accessibility services are also available if you’re in need of transportation service that accommodates wheelchairs.
If you’re planning to attend the 2015 Netball World Cup at Sydney’s Olympic Park, you can secure a ride for the netball teams Sydney games through Charterplus, a bus company that provides transportation specifically for visitors to major events. Overall, whichever transportation service you plan to use, make sure you have information for alternative services in order to avoid major interruptions in your schedule due to the large number of guests who will also be attending the games.
