Blacktown International Sportspark

The Football & Cricket oval at Blacktown International Sportspark was completed in 2009 and is the future headquarters of the Western Sydney Football Club (AFL). The ground has same dimensions as the MCG and has a total capacity of 10,000 including seating for 1,600 in the main grandstand which also includes corporate and function facilities and office space. Four light towers illuminate the ground to television broadcast standard.

A number of pre-season AFL games have been scheduled for the venue. It’s anticipated the venue will be the administration and training headquarters for the new Greater Western Sydney AFL team with home games expected to be played at a redeveloped Sydney Showground at Homebush. The Blacktown facility has also been built with Cricket in mind. The $27 million construction cost also included a smaller ground two located a small distance from the main oval.
