Aussie Stadium capacity to increase

Austadiums   |  Wednesday 29th March 2006

Aussie Stadium's capacity will increase to 45,500 with over 3,000 additional seats to be installed with almost 500 seats allocated to the Members Reserve.

The multi-million dollar project will commence in late May.

The additional seats will be positioned on the grandstand and concourse levels on both sides of Aussie Stadium.

All new seats will be located closer to the field of play and will further enhance Aussie Stadium's highly acclaimed match day atmosphere.

Aussie Stadium Chief Executive, Mr Jamie Barkley, said the seating project will be popular with Rugby League, Rugby Union and Football players and supporters.

"Recent independent fan surveys conducted among Rugby League, Rugby Union and Football supporters have categorically stated that Aussie Stadium is their favourite football venue in Sydney," said Mr Barkley.

"The additional seats will give fans an even better view of the on-field action and will heighten the stadium's spine-tingling atmosphere.

"The escalation in atmosphere will prove to be a tremendous asset when the NSW Waratahs, Sydney FC, Sydney Roosters, the Australian Kangaroos Rugby League team and the Socceroos play at Aussie Stadium.

"It will be a very intimidating cauldron for visiting teams," he added.

Aussie Stadium's record crowd is 43,967 when Australia played a Football international against Argentina in 1993.
