The under-construction, 30,000-capacity stadium in Western Sydney is now more than 70 per cent complete, with the next step of the project set to see the venue’s seats and scoreboards installed.

Western Sydney Stadium will serve as the home of A-League football club Western Sydney Wanderers and NRL rugby league team the Parramatta Eels.

The venue will replace the Parramatta Stadium and the project is part of a wider redevelopment of Sydney’s stadia.

Stuart Ayres, Minister for Western Sydney and Minister for Sport, said: “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.”

The NSW Government is also renovating Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, as well as demolishing and rebuilding the city’s Allianz Stadium.
