Reminder To All Fans - 3.35PM Start Time on Saturday
The Gold Coast SUNS reminds fans that the first bounce of the season opener at Metricon Stadium on Saturday between the GC SUNS & Essendon is at 3:35pm.
"We want to remind fans the game starts at 3.35pm and arriving early will ensure we can get people through the gates quickly," GC SUNS Chief Executive Andrew Travis said.
With a strong crowd is expected over the Easter long weekend break, it is reminded General Admission won’t be available for daily purchase at the Gate, with the area having been allocated exclusively to 2016 GC SUNS members.
To ensure the best match-day experience possible, members with no reserve seat entitlements and fans are urged to pre-purchase their ticket and seat prior to the game, in a bid to avoid any delays on match day.
