WESTERN SYDNEY STADIUM
Perhaps the most talked about stadium development in Australia is the new 30,000-seat Western Sydney Stadium, being constructed on the site of the old Parramatta Stadium. The venue is quickly taking shape with the steepness of the grandstand evident – now surrounding the majority of the rectangular field. The venue is due to open in mid-2019 and will be home to the Parramatta Eels and Western Sydney Wanderers. View Stadium >
