Western Sydney Wanderers FC and CommBank Stadium have today welcomed the NSW Government’s decision to have 75%, or 22,500, capacity for the upcoming Sydney Derby on Saturday 20 November 2021.
The blockbuster fixture will open the Wanderers ISUZU Ute A-League season with tickets set to go on sale to the general public on Ticketek at the end of the week.
The match will be part of a festival of football at CommBank Stadium in the month of November with a number of international matches in the run-up to the start of the domestic competition.
In line with the current NSW Government Health Orders, only those who live in the Greater Sydney Area (which includes Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour) are eligible to attend.
It is also compulsory for all adult ticket holders (aged 16+) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Tickets for the Sydney Derby will go on sale to MyWanderers Account Holders and away club members on Wednesday 27 October at 12:00pm AEDT. General public tickets will go on sale on Friday 29 October at 12:00-noon AEDT.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas welcomed the change in restrictions.
“The Sydney Derby is the biggest match in the calendar and we are delighted to have the capacity to host our members, corporate partners and fans at CommBank Stadium,” said Tsatsimas.
“We are counting down the days to get back to our home and are excited to see a sea of Red & Black in the stands.”
CommBank Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry said the Stadium team was thrilled to be welcoming back the Wanderers faithful for the first time since May.
“Bringing events back to NSW is an important part of the State Government’s Roadmap to Recovery and it will be good to again have a sea of red and black inside the Stadium,” Mr Kerry said.
“The Stadium team is looking forward to getting back to doing what we do best: hosting events and delivering an unparalleled event experience for the fans and the players, while ensuring everyone remains safe at all times.”
