What a day to be a sports fan! Licensed NSW venues will be allowed to stay open if they are broadcasting the soccer (fine, football).
The NSW Government has granted special trading extensions from midnight til 5am so that Sydneysiders can watch grown men run around for a while and sometimes score a goal!
The extended trading hours will also apply to the World Cup final, with venues able to open from 10pm on December 18, through to 5am on December 19.
It's basically government permission to pull an all-nighter. Bloody, cheers as to that!
