Allianz Stadium Redevelopment
The original Sydney Football Stadium (known commercially as Allianz Stadium) was demolished in 1999 and construction has commenced on a new state-of-the-art 42,500-seat stadium. The project will build on the legacy of the Sydney Sports Ground (1899) and the original SFS, opened as a Bicentennial Project in 1988.
Work is expected to be completed by early 2022.
The new stadium will feature three levels of seating on each side with two levels at the ends. The steep incline will ensure all seats are close to and on top of the action with not a bad seat in the house.
One of the primary features will be the spectacular roof which will light up in the colours of the home team while the drip line will extend beyond the first row, meaning all seats will be covered, however some fans may still get wet depending on the wind direction. The wrap-around design means light and crowd noise will be kept within the stadium, reducing spill to the surrounding areas.
