PointsBet Stadium

Redevelopment/Construction

Shark Park (officially known as PointsBet Stadium due to naming-rights) is the home ground of NRL club Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks. The venue, which is owned by the Sharks, was originally built in 1960 and last upgraded in 2006. It consists of three grandstands: the ET Grandstand, the Peter Burns Stand which backs onto the Sharkies Leagues Club and the 1,500-capacity Southern Grandstand which was completed in 2006 following a $9.6m grant from the Federal Government. A large hill is situated at the Northern end, bringing the total capacity to around 22,000, including seating for 11,000 fans.

Sharks Stadium

The venue was originally known as Endeavour Field and has had a number of commercial naming rights in its time. It is believed to be the first Australian sports venue to hold a naming rights sponsor when it became Ronson Park in 1985. Since then it has been known as Caltex Park, Shark Park, Toyota Park/Stadium, Remondis Stadium, Southern Cross Group Stadium, and now PointsBet Stadium as of April 2019 as part of a four-year deal, after being known as Shark Park since the end of the 2018 NRL season. As well as Rugby League, the stadium has also played host to Football with Sydney Olympic in the old NSL playing at the venue between 2001 and 2003.

Shark Park will undergo a redevelopment in 2020 and 2021 forcing the Cronulla Sharks to move home games to alternate venues. While it's believed not much of the actual stadium will be developed, areas around it and the leagues club will be affected.
