$300 million Western Sydney Stadium nearly ready to shine

Western Sydney Stadium
The Wanderers are counting the days until they can play in their new home

Construction on Western Sydney's newest stadium is 70 percent complete with an official opening expected 'within months'.

The Wanderers will share the venue with NRL side Parramatta Eels and though scheduled to host a rugby league match in April, isn't expected to see any A-League action until the 2019/20 season to ensure a smooth transition for the red and black.

The Western Sydney Stadium will cost an estimated $300 million and house 30,000 fans in what will be the steepest stadium in Australia.

Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres confirmed the stadium is set to be opened soon and will be a vital addition to the Western Sydney region. 

“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,” Ayres said.

“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.”
