ANZ Stadium operator VenuesLive to manage new Western Sydney Stadium
May 2, 2018

The NSW Government has announced that VenuesLive, the operator of Sydney's ANZ Stadium and Optus Stadium in Perth will oversee day-to-day management of the new Western Sydney Stadium which is under construction on the site of the former Parramatta Stadium.

The contract will see VenuesLive managing events and catering, securing event content and ticketing.

Annoucing the significan project milestone, NSW Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres advised "in a little over a year we will deliver a world class entertainment precinct that will inject millions of dollars into the Western Sydney economy and redine the fan experience.

“Western Sydney is no stranger to showing the rest of Sydney how it is done and this stadium will be no different, it will attract top name acts and sporting blockbusters and boast the latest technology and seats closer to action than ever before.

VenuesLive Chief Executive Daryl Kerry added “VenuesLive is delighted to be partnering with the NSW Government to operate Western Sydney Stadium, which will set new standards in live sport and entertainment when it opens in 2019.

“We will leverage our team’s extensive management and operations expertise to introduce world-class events in Western Sydney and deliver a truly fans-first live sport experience.”

Venues NSW Chair Christine McLoughlin also stated “VenuesLive has demonstrated its capability to deliver fantastic events and outstanding venue management, and we are excited to be working with VenuesLive as we look toward the opening of Western Sydney Stadium.”

Western Sydney Stadium is being delivered by Infrastructure NSW in close partnership with Venues NSW, the owner and promoter of a portfolio of publicly-owned sports and entertainment venues in NSW.
