Fairfield Showground

Fairfield Showground recently underwent a $25 million redevelopment, transforming the trotting track into a modern sporting and cultural hub for high level sports, community cultural festivals and major events. The site now features three sports fields - an international size turf football field, $3.5 million synthetic football pitch and an oval field able to host Australian football and cricket. A new $5 million multipurpose amenities building was also constructed between the oval and synthetic field.

The main field features a main grandstand with undercover seating (including function centre) and the older small stand beside it, 750 lux lighting with the capacity to upgrade to 1750 lux in the future, and additional spectator room around the pitch, with an estimated capacity of 5,000. The venue has been announced as the training venue of new A-League expansion side, Macarthur FC.

Fairfield Showground's life as a harness racing venue dates back to 1954, with the first registered race meeting at the Trotdome in 1964, in front of 10,000 spectators. Night racing began in 1970 and a new grandstand opened in 1982. At one point hosting 31 meetings each year, full time racing stopped in 2004 and the final race meeting was held on June 12, 2017.
