THE NSW Government has extended hotel and club trading hours across the state for the NRL Grand Final this Sunday night, October 6.

Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said grand final weekend was one of the biggest sporting events on the calendar.

“It’s a huge day for our venues and a boost to our state’s economy, so the NSW Government is pleased to extend licensed venue trading hours this Sunday from 10pm to midnight,” Mr Lee said. 

“It’s Sydney Roosters verses Canberra Raiders for the NRL’s top prize – so we’re expecting thousands of Raiders supporters to head north to Homebush to watch all the action live.”

Mr Lee said the later trading will benefit rugby league fans who want to head down to their local hotel or club to watch all the action on the big screen with friends and family.

“Without a mass exodus from venues at 10pm, it will be easier for people to get home,” Mr Lee said.

“It’s also a great chance for people to get out and socialise and enjoy entertainment in hotels and clubs on the Sunday night of the long weekend.”

The extended trading hours apply only to drinks sold on premises, not takeaway alcohol. Venues already approved to trade beyond extended hours are not affected by these special arrangements.

Hotels and clubs must still comply with any individual trading restrictions or other special conditions that apply to their licenses under the Liquor Act or imposed by local councils under planning laws.
