A grand stage for Sydney’s major sports and entertainment events, ANZ Stadium has welcomed more than 27 million fans since it was purpose-built for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Everyone remembers where they were when Cathy ran, when Aloisi scored, or when unforgettable NRL Grand Finals, State of Origin games, football blockbusters and Bledisloe Cup matches unfolded. The NSW Government’s recent commitment to the redevelopment of ANZ Stadium will ensure this iconic venue continues to host many of the nation’s biggest events and most iconic sporting moments well into the future. ANZ Stadium is owned by Venues NSW on behalf of the NSW Government.
Perth’s Optus Stadium is the new jewel in the crown of Australian sport, having welcomed more than 1.5 million fans in its first year of operation since its official opening on 21 January 2018. A host of crowd records have fallen as fans pack in to the Stadium to witness a range of sport and entertainment events. In 2018, Optus Stadium has hosted International and Big Bash cricket, two Ed Sheeran concerts, an NRL double-header, AFL and AFLW blockbusters, and a football classic featuring Chelsea FC versus Perth Glory, among other events. The surrounding Stadium Park provides year-round access for visitors of all ages to enjoy the nature playgrounds in the Chevron Parkland, the BHP Boardwalk and Amphitheatre, picnic and barbeque areas, public art, recreational facilities and the opportunity to dine in the buffet or a la carte restaurants that overlook the Swan River. Optus Stadium is owned by VenuesWest, on behalf of the Government of Western Australia.
The next generation of NSW sporting infrastructure is on the way, with the construction of Western Sydney Stadium nearing completion and on track to open in the first half of 2019. Western Sydney Stadium is a 30,000-seat purpose-built rectangular stadium in the heart of Parramatta, Sydney’s second CBD. Featuring the steepest grandstands in the country and amazing sightlines from all seats, it will take fans closer to the action than ever before. It will offer an awesome live sport and entertainment experience in a lively precinct that will quickly become part of the fabric of Western Sydney. The Stadium will host a range of sport and entertainment events. It will also be a thriving hub of community activity, hosting an array of meetings and special events throughout the year.
