Matildas fans stranded at Sydney Olympic Park after crushing World Cup loss to England with ‘no trains coming or going’
Tens of thousands of football fans were left stranded at Sydney’s Olympic Park after the Matildas’ crushing defeat to England in the Women’s World Cup semi-final.
Photos show a massive crowd draped in green and gold waiting on the platform after Wednesday night’s game.
According to Sydney Trains, a power supply problem has caused major delays with a warning for commuters to allow extra journey time.
“Trains are running late due to power supply issues affecting equipment at Ashfield,” a statement from Sydney Trains read.
“If you are returning home to the city, you have the option of joining a service from Olympic Park to Lidcombe and switching to a T3 Bankstown Line service as a diversion around the affected area.”
