Important COVID Protocols at Henson Park
In 2021, watching the Newtown Jets at Henson Park is going to be a little different. With the pandemic and public health orders, we want to make sure all our visitors can feel safe and comfortable and have thus had to implement a few new rules.
Firstly, you NEED to stay home if:
- You’ve had a COVID-19 test and waiting for the results
- You’re feeling unwell
- You have been in contact with a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case in the 14-days leading up to a game
- You have returned from overseas in the 14-days leading up to a Henson Park game, or have attended one of the following locations during the dates detailed by the NSW Government at this link.
Additionally, where possible, please pre-purchase your matchday tickets and show up to the ground at least 30 minutes before kick-off and scan the QR Code. For non-members, we suggest purchasing single-game tickets from our ticket partners, IWannaTicket. This will minimise queuing and crowding at the turnstiles. If you are buying tickets for a group you are responsible for ensuring they are not from a COVID excluded area and if required will provide their details to NSW Health for contact tracing purposes.
Members who purchased their memberships 12th April 2021 CANNOT use their membership to gain access to our ‘Thanks Tommy Game’ on April 17th. They will need to either pre-purchase a ticket from IWannaTicket or buy one at the gate.
Entry to the ground will be through the Sydenham Road gates NOT Centennial Street. Gates will be open from 10:30am.
Individual ticket prices are as follows:
. $12.50 for non-members when pre-bought from IWannaTicket (until 11:59pm Friday, 16th April)
. $15 at the gate or IWannaTicket on Saturday, 17th April
. $7 Concession (at the gate)
. Under 16s free
When at Henson Park, we kindly ask that you please try to minimise the use of cash. We will have EFTPOS terminals at all food and drink outlets as well as at the merchandise stalls.
You will also need to practise physical distancing at games. You may sit with a group of friends attending the game with you, but for the safety and comfort of others, we recommend you keep at least two seats away from anyone in your row that you don’t know (or two metres if you are on the hill).
Try not to linger in crowded areas or wander around Henson Park. We recommend you stay in your chosen spot unless using the toilets, visiting food and drink outlets, the merchandise stalls, or other amenities. Likewise, eating and drinking should only be done in your allocated seat while we encourage you to practise high-level hygiene, including washing your hands and/or using sanitiser regularly, and coughing or sneezing into your elbow.
There will be NO PARKING available inside the ground for the general public for at least our first two games due to construction work that is still ongoing at the south eastern end of the ground
Lastly, In the event of wet weather, please remember to bring an umbrella or wet weather gear. There is little shelter at Henson Park and we may not be able to accommodate everyone under cover, with the above physical distancing requirements.
