March construction progress on new Sydney Football Stadium

NSW Minister for Sport Geoff Lee announced on Monday the completion of the stadium concourse, saying “this is a major construction milestone, allowing us to see and feel what the fans will experience when the Stadium hosts major events next year”.
John Holland’s next step is to build the roof, which will involve 4,000 individual pieces of steel, the majority of which is being manufactured in Western Sydney by the same company that built the roof of the original Sydney Football Stadium in 1988.
The structure is due to be completed in 2021, followed by the completion of the building and public domain, including installation of the roof, façade and internal fit-out ahead of its opening in early 2022.
“The concourse will offer 35 food and beverage outlets, merchandise stands, and accessible amenities for the 42,500 fans who will fill the Stadium.” Lee continued.
“This project is boosting the local economy, supporting 800 jobs during construction, with more jobs on offer once the Stadium is complete.”
General Manager of John Holland Matthew Bourne explained that the new SFS will be a leading sporting and entertainment venue for the people of NSW “this state-of-the-art Stadium will build on the already strong entertainment and sporting culture in Sydney and NSW.”
Once complete, the new Sydney Football Stadium will be home to the Sydney Roosters, NSW Waratahs and Sydney FC, with the potential for more teams to play home games at the venue.
