The Sydney Football Stadium has reached a significant milestone, with the new world-class stadium now 80 per cent complete.
The last pieces of the roof’s steel are currently being lifted into place, as award-winning Indigenous artist Tony Albert’s seat design makes striking progress.
Once complete the stadium will provide 42,500 undercover seats and best-in-class member and corporate facilities, all located closer to the action than ever before.
The fan experience will be unrivalled, with an open concourse allowing open views from the field from the vast array of new Merivale food and beverage outlets available across the stadium.
While the new team facilities, including four gender neutral changerooms that will allow for male and female double headers, along with new medical rooms, wet areas, warm-up rooms and recovery pools will provide the athletes with the best facilities to thrive on the field.
Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said the SFS will be a world-class sporting and entertainment venue for everyone to enjoy, attracting local, interstate and international fans.
“It’s so exciting to see the final pieces taking shape at our fantastic new SFS. We’re beginning to get a real feel for what fans will experience when the stadium hosts major events,” Mrs Ward said.
“Work is now on the home stretch and the stadium is on track to be finished and open by the NRL finals series next year.”
The stadium will have a distinctly local feel, with $480 million of the stadium’s budget going to local suppliers.
