NSW hotels and registered clubs screening live telecasts of the 2018 Commonwealth Games will be able to trade until midnight on Sunday 8 April and 11pm on Sunday 15 April.
Later trading on Sunday 8 April will give fans the chance to watch competitions including swimming, athletics, basketball or hockey. Sunday 15 April will feature the Games’ closing ceremony.
Hotels and clubs will be allowed to stay open for on-premises sales and consumption. Takeaway alcohol sales are not permitted during the extended period.
Venues must still comply with any individual trading restrictions or other special conditions that apply to their licences under the Liquor Act.
Venues already approved to trade beyond the extended trading hours are not impacted by these special arrangements.
