2019 opening on track for new Western Sydney Stadium

2019 opening on track for new Western Sydney Stadium
August 26, 2018

The new Western Sydney Stadium is coming to life with major construction more than 70% complete and installation of the new venue’s scoreboards and 30,000 seats and set to begin.

Commenting on the progress of the new venue after touring the construction site, NSW Minister for Western Sydney and Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres stated “Western Sydney Stadium is on track to open within months - a new home to showcase our finest home grown and international sporting and international entertainment acts right here in Parramatta.

“This venue will revolutionise the visitor experience and ensure fans are closer to the action than any stadium in the country, all within an inviting all-year round precinct featuring green space, BBQ decks and kids playgrounds.

“The NSW Government is delivering major infrastructure which sets communities up for decades. Western Sydney Stadium is part of a multibillion dollar infrastructure spend on schools, hospitals, public transport, roads and cultural facilities.”

“We have poured 26,000 cubic metres of concrete, and lifted 3,300 tonnes of steel into, completing the stadium’s entire concrete structure, and reaching the highest point of the stadium.”
