Sydney 7s to play in Western Sydney in 2020
The tournament will be held on 1–2 February 2020 at the Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta. There will also be live bands, rides and interactive entertainment.
The 30,000-seat stadium will provide fans with world-class facilities, including the steepest stands in Australia and 360-degree LED screens to create a wall of sound and colour.
The tournament is moving to Bankwest Stadium following three years at Allianz Stadium and a fourth year at Spotless Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park.
Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said Bankwest Stadium will be the perfect fit for the HSBC Sydney 7s.
“The Sydney 7s is an exciting event in our state’s calendar – it’s as much about the enthusiastic fans in the stands as it is about the players on the field,” Mr Ayres said.
“About half of Sydney’s population lives in Western Sydney and it’s among the fastest growing regions in NSW, so it makes perfect sense to hold this fantastic multicultural sporting event at the Bankwest Stadium.”
