Clubs in NSW are reminded that extended venue trading hours for the NRL grand final and soccer World Cup events. Both Parramatta Leagues Club and Penrith Panthers are expected to be packed for the NRL season decider on Sunday, 2 October. Liquor and Gaming NSW says extended trading means fans can enjoy all the NRL Grand Final action on any club venue’s big screen, then keep socialising with family and friends later into the night.

Venues can also trade later for screenings of the FIFA World Cup football finals and ICC Men’s T20 World Cup cricket finals.

Club premises in the Bathurst regional local government area will also enjoy extended trading hours to coincide with the Bathurst 1000 on October 9, but only clubs in Abercrombie, Bathurst, Eglinton, Kelso, Llanarth, Mitchell, Mount Panorama, Orton Park, Perthville, Raglan, South Bathurst, West Bathurst and Windradyne.

Liquor and Gaming NSW says year-round trading extensions for major sports and cultural events are proving popular with patrons and supporting licensed venues as they continue to recover from COVID-19.

With daylight saving starting on Sunday 2 October, clocks are put forward from 2am to 3am. Late trading venues will lose this hour and must observe the new time. They will get the hour back when daylight saving ends in April 2023.

Annual Liquor Licence Fee due date extended

With many NSW licensed venues still enduring the effects of Covid and the recent floods, Liquor and Gaming NSW has also extended the due date for the Annual Liquor Licence Fee (ALLF). Notices were sent by email in mid-April and August with ALLF payments due by 30 September. A licence will suspended for non-payment and late fee added from 28 October and from 26 November any licence not renewed will be cancelled for non-payment.
