Seating & Tickets

Public

Viewing spaces accessible for wheelchairs or mobility chairs are available in all stands of the SCG.

To purchase these tickets, please contact the Ticketek special needs hotline on 1300 665 915. If you plan to collect tickets for an  SCG event, the box offices between gates B and C are wheelchair accessible.

The SCG participates in the NSW Companion Card Scheme, offering free adjacent seats for patrons requiring a carer. To make use of your Companion Card, notify Ticketek when buying your ticket and bring the card with you to the ground. The card must be presented on request or the appropriate ticket fee applies.

Members

Viewing spaces accessible for wheelchairs or mobility chairs are available in all stands within the SCG Members' precinct. These spaces offer adjacent companion seating for Members or their guests.

For major events at the SCG, such as international cricket where demand for these spaces may exceed the number available, they can be reserved by calling the Membership Services team on 1800 80 11 55.

The Membership Services team can also help with reserving seats suitable for Members or guests with minor mobility issues (such as when having an aisle seat would be helpful). These can be purchased by phone (not available online) as part of the usual Member seat reservation system available for all events.

Corporate Entertainment

Most corporate entertainment and dining areas and private suites at the SCG are wheelchair accessible. Please ask your host to check with our sales team representative about access or any special requirements.

Getting To & From the Ground

Parking

Vehicles with a valid NSW Mobility Parking Scheme permit can use the reserved disability spaces in the MP1, EP2 and EP3 car parks (see our site maps for locations). As with all car parking at our grounds, this is subject to availability and cannot be pre-booked.

Car/Taxi Drop Off & Pick Up

Patrons with disabilities can be dropped off at the northern turning circle on Driver Avenue near the main Members' entrance (Gate A) if coming from Moore Park Road, or the southern turning circle on Driver Avenue opposite the Entertainment Quarter if coming from Lang Road.

These areas can also be used for pick-ups but this section of Driver Avenue can be closed for up to an hour after events to allow for the most rapid clearance of cars from the car parks. The nearest taxi rank to the grounds is located in the Entertainment Quarter.

Public Transport

Numerous bus routes service the event day bus stop on Driver Avenue between the SCG and Allianz Stadium. See our Transport page for details.

Getting Into & Around the Ground

Access to all the wheelchair spaces in public stands (including private suites and corporate entertainment areas such as Club SCG) is via Gate E off Driver Avenue. Ask one of our ushers to direct you to the appropriate nearby lift for accessing the upper levels of the Brewongle, Churchill or Trumper stands. If you are making use of the accessible spaces in the Bill O'Reilly Stand or bays 2, 3 or 4 on the Don Bradman Stand concourse, ask an usher for directions via the Victor Trumper Tunnel.

Members can access their disability spaces from gates A or J. There are lifts in the MA Noble Stand Atrium for accessing the disability spaces on levels 2 and 4 of the Noble and Bradman stands. The gap between the Members and Ladies pavilions provides wheelchair access to the disability spaces in those stands.

There are separate lifts for accessing the suites and corporate entertainment areas on level 3 of the Bradman and Noble stands. Guests to these areas with mobility disabilities should enter via Gate J and ask staff there for assistance. One of them will escort you to the closest appropriate lift.

Toilets, Food Stores, Bars & Merchandise

All toilets in the Don Bradman, MA Noble and Victor Trumper stands have two wheelchair-accessible cubicles. There are also disabled toilets in other areas close to the wheelchair viewing spaces. The exception to that is the Members Pavilion and Ladies Pavilion, where the age and heritage nature of these buildings prevents us making them fully accessible. If you are using the wheelchair spaces in the heritage pavilions, there is a single accessible toilet at the back of the Members Pavilion. Otherwise the closest accessible toilets are in the adjacent MA Noble Stand.

It's a similar situation with food stores, bars, merchandise stands and other facilities such as ATMs. These are all accessible in the new Member stands, the Victor Trumper Stand  and the areas of other public stands accessible for wheelchair viewing, but access is again limited to these facilities in the older pavilions.
