These exclusive images show the progress that has already been made at Allianz Stadium as it is converted into a truly 21st-century arena.
Thousands of seats have already been removed, the turf is being uprooted and the giant screens behind the goalposts are being dismantled at the Moore Park sporting facility.
Developer Lendlease is in the process of preparing the site for the bulldozers, which will arrive as soon as the Australia v India cricket Test match finishes at the SCG next door.

SCG Trust chairman Tony Shepherd said he was “very pleased” with the progress being made.
“We will return NSW to the position where it has the best stadium facilities in Australia, and as the leading city in Australia that is more than appropriate,” he told The Saturday Telegraph.
“The old Sydney Football Stadium had past its use by date in terms of safety, and patron convenience and comfort, and it was due to be replaced and the new one will last for a long time.”
