Welcome Game 

The GIANTS’ Welcome Game aims to showcase the rich cultural diversity of Western Sydney and bring together new and existing fans to experience AFL football and their home team, the GIANTS!

Sport is one of the best ways to build social cohesion and create a sense of belonging for those new to the community.

The Welcome Game acknowledges the contribution diverse communities have made to our game for generations and introduces hundreds of new Australians to our great game.

Remember it’s mandatory to wear a face mask on public transport and you'll need to use an Opal card or contactless payment card/device. Register your details online at Opal or via the app ahead of time.

If you’re driving, travel with your group and pre-book your parking online (available until 11:59pm the night before the event). Traffic may be heavier than usual on roads approaching the precinct so allow extra travel time. You can find real-time updates on traffic conditions at livetraffic.com.
