THE NSW government has unveiled its winning design for the new look Parramatta Stadium.
The new 30,000 seat stadium will play host to both the Eels and A-League club Western Sydney Wanderers, with the venue set to open in early 2019.
NSW Premier Mike Baird believes the new world-class venue will be a major boost in promoting sport in Western Sydney.
“We’re getting on with the job of delivering the biggest investment in sporting and entertainment infrastructure since the 2000 Olympics, and our first cab off the rank in our $1.6 billion stadia package is truly jaw-dropping,” Mr Baird said.
“This design boasts Australia’s steepest stands to ensure fans will be closer to the action than they are at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, or any other in the country.”
Demolition on Pirtek Stadium is set to begin next year, with the Eels set to temporarily relocate to ANZ Stadium while renovations occur.
