SCG security

The Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust (Sydney Cricket Ground/Allianz Stadium) regards the safety and security of workers and spectators as our highest priority. We work closely with NSW Police to assess security and safety risks at all our events. As a result, minimum security requirements may change at short notice.  

To help us keep the stadium safe:

  • Take public transport.
  • Arrive early.
  • Don’t bring a bag. If bringing a bag is necessary, consider bringing a clear bag or a small bag with minimal compartments.
  • Report anything suspicious. If you see something, say something.

When attending our events, you will be subject to security screening at stadium entrances which may include:

  • An inspection of any bags you may be carrying. Note: you may be asked to remove items from your bag to assist the inspection process.
  • Screening using fixed and/or hand-held magnetometers.
  • Explosive residue testing.
  • Frisk searches.

When visiting our venue you will be monitored using Closed Circuit Television (CCTV). Your image may be stored as part of this process in accordance with out terms and conditions of entry.
