Bankwest Stadium

Bankwest Stadium

Bankwest Stadium is a 30,000-capacity rectangular stadium located in Parramatta, a western suburb of Sydney. Built on the site of the old Parramatta Stadium, the venue was known by its non-commercial name of Western Sydney Stadium during its construction phase and officially opened in April 2019.

The $300 million stadium boasts the steepest stands of any stadium of its type in Australia, bringing fans closer to the action. The roof covers all seats and it features 3,000 premium seats and 54 corporate suites on the western side.

Bankwest Stadium is home of the Parramatta Eels in the NRL and Western Sydney Wanderers in the A-League and regularly plays host to rugby league, rugby union and football matches. The Wests Tigers, Canterbury Bulldogs and NSW Waratahs also play some home games at the venue. The facility features two large video screens, LED floodlighting, four change rooms and all the modern amenities expected of a world-class venue such as extensive Wi-Fi coverage. Another feature is safe-standing behind one of the goals, allowing fans to stand during football matches - the first all-seat stadium to implement this in Australia.

Bankwest Stadium

Bankwest secured the initial naming-rights to the new stadium, with the venue to be known as Bankwest Stadium for at least the next seven years. The stadium is operated by VenuesLive.
