ASM Global has been closely following the federal and state governments’ management of the COVID-19 outbreak, and takes seriously our responsibility for the health and well-being of our patrons, performers, athletes, clients and employees coming to Qudos Bank Arena.
We encourage you to check our website for further details about our future events, and we will update regularly as more information becomes available.

- Your Qudos Bank Arena Team


Qudos Bank Arena looks forward to welcoming you back to shows here at the Arena. All events will follow current COVID-19 health advice and Government regulations. We've put a number of event day measures in place to create a safe environment for everyone who visits the Arena, including patrons, and you have an important role to play in supporting our COVIDSafe Plan and keeping our community safe.
We therefore seek your support and assistance by complying with the following simple health rules:

  • Please stay home if you’re feeling unwell, have been in contact with a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case in the past 14 days, or are waiting on a COVID-19 test.
  • ​If you and/or anyone in your group are a resident of a COVID-19 hotspot (Overseas or Locally) or have been in a COVID-19 hotspot (Overseas or Locally), in the designated time periods, you will not be permitted to attend events at the Arena at this time. For an up to date list of COVID Hot Spots please check out the NSW Government website here - (
  • Maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres from anyone who is not part of your immediate ticketed group, particularly while queuing and moving through concourses.
  • We strongly recommend that you check into the Service NSW COVID Safe App (via a QR code) PRIOR to entering the Arena and show your 'Green Tick" to the Ticketing Staff prior to gaining entry to the Arena.
  • As per NSW Health, we strongly encourage you to wear a face mask when entering, navigating and exiting the Arena.
  • Practise high-level hygiene, including washing your hands and/or using sanitiser regularly while inside the Arena.
  • Whilst in the Venue, please remain seated at all times unless buying Food and Beverage, Merchandise or using the restrooms.
  • Please be aware that Qudos Bank Arena is a Cash Free Venue – All transactions including food, drink and merchandise will be cashless.
  • Minimise the size of bags you bring to the Arena – No backpacks or bags over A5 (200mm x 150mm) sizing will be permitted into the Venue.  Due to public health requirements, a Clock Room and Cloaking facilities are no longer available at Qudos Bank Arena.

We have introduced additional procedures around our operations based on the current recommendations. We have increased our infection mitigation routines throughout the Arena, including the following:
  • Our cleaning team is cleaning and disinfecting all points of contact on an increased rotation particularly during these times.
  • For our everyday sanitation and disinfectant of all hard surfaces throughout public areas, we use recommended cleaning solutions that are, at a minimum, 60% alcohol-based.  These have proven anti-viral/bacterial properties and are a hospital grade application.  With each application, a different micro-fibre cloth is used to avoid any cross-contamination between surfaces.
  • Hand sanitiser with similar anti-viral properties is available at a number of convenient locations around the venue. Authorities also suggest we all carry a personal dispenser of sanitiser with us at all times.
  • We are communicating closely with all personnel engaged at the Arena to avoid the introduction of any infection by any of them.  We have given clear instructions that anyone exhibiting flu-like symptoms or who has been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case, is to stay at home in isolation for at least 14 days and present a medical certificate before returning to work.
  • We have mounted an in-house campaign in support of good health etiquette amongst all our team.
Should there be any change from the government guidance regarding major events in Australia, we are in contact and working with health authorities so as to be ready to respond to their advice.


We have made contact with all promoters of concerts / organisers of events announced here at Qudos Bank Arena – and have reschedule those events that have been affected by the advice to not proceed with events of mass gathering, or cancelled those that are unable to postpone to a later time.
Whilst we have been anticipating a variety of scenarios, there may still be more changes to the Governments ban on Mass Gatherings that will affect our upcoming events.
It will take some time to resolve the arrangements for each event, and we will announce straight away to you our patrons.
As soon as we know - we will pass on the information.

So far – all Tickets to current events that have been rescheduled and are still valid for the rescheduled dates.
No action will need to be taken – your same seats / same tickets are still valid for the new dates and you don’t need to be issued new tickets.
