Free public parking is available in USC Car Park 15 or throughout the rest of the University campus. Download a USC campus map.

Ticketing and accreditation
Ticketing will have a marquee external to the Activation Zone entry for any ticket collections. No tickets will be available for sale at the gate – the game is sold out.
Entry to the Stadium will be via the Activation Zone, which will open at 3.30pm. Security will undertake a bag check prior to being scanned into the Activation Zone – Members and fans can then enjoy the Zone’s activities (weather dependant). Why not get your face painted, have something to eat and drink, share a dance and photo with Lucy Lightning! Activations include:
- Hot 91.1
- Sunshine Coast Council
- Sunshine Coast Daily
- Springfree Trampoline.
Our Lightning crew will be handing out FREE Lightning team posters thanks to Suncorp.
Food and beverage
A variety of hot and cold food will be available for purchase at the venue, including Raw Energy (inside), Good Food Fellas, Potato Slinky, Calamari Canteen, Donut Kitchen, Mexican Tucka and Espresso XO: coffee and drinks. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages (including bottled water) are also available for purchase from the public bar in the Activation Zone (18+ photo identification must be shown to purchase alcoholic beverages).
USC Stadium entry
There are two entry points – the Northern Gate (closest to the pool end) and the Southern Gate. Your ticket will either say North or South. Each stand is then broken down into aisles which are signed. Please refer to the USC Stadium entry conditions.
Please note: While the action on-court will be red-hot, inside the USC Stadium itself can be quite cool. The air-conditioning system works perfectly, so if you feel the cold, we suggest you bring something warm to wear. If you’re bringing a pram, please ensure to leave it in the front entry foyer on arrival – prams cannot be left in the aisle ways.
Fans who want to look the part are in luck. GAME Clothing, Lightning's official merchandise partner, will be on location with the latest GAME goodies so you can deck yourself out in some fantastic gear.
Lightning athletes will be available to sign autographs shortly after the conclusion of the game. This will occur in the Hall of Fame area near the USC Athletics Track end, for 15 minutes only. Signings are limited to one item each and minimal photos. This is to ensure the players have their correct recovery time and fairness that everyone gets a chance to get a signature. We appreciate your assistance in ensuring we can get the balance right for everyone.
The Round 5 match will be broadcast live on Telstra TV. All Suncorp Super Netball matches will also be available live via subscription to the Netball Live app. This app will also offer behind-the-scenes content and match highlights.
