New stadium opens in Western Sydney
The 30,000-seat Bankwest Stadium has the steepest stands in Australia and has been designed to amplify crowd noise, with 360-degree LED screens to create a wall of sound and colour.
The stadium precinct will also feature children’s play equipment, parkland and new spaces for community events including market days and community movies.
Minister for Sport John Sidoti said the stadium has been designed with the fan experience in mind.
“The fan experience will be second to none – they will be so close to the action they will almost feel the crunch of the tackles on the field,” Mr Sidoti said.
“We have already locked in more than 30 sports and entertainment events for Bankwest Stadium this year with more to be announced soon.”
