 Minister for Western Sydney and Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres joined Member for Parramatta Geoff Lee said the stadium was already injecting millions into the western Sydney economy.

“Western Sydney Stadium is on track to open within months — a new home to showcase our finest home grown and international sporting and international entertainment acts right here in Parramatta,” Mr Ayres said.

“This venue will revolutionise the visitor experience and ensure fans are closer to the action than any stadium in the country, all within an inviting all-year round precinct featuring green space, BBQ decks and kids playgrounds.

“The NSW Government is delivering major infrastructure which sets communities up for decades. Western Sydney Stadium is part of a multi-billion dollar infrastructure spend on schools, hospitals, public transport, roads and cultural facilities.”

The stadium has already seen 26,000 cubic metres of concrete poured into the foundation and more than 3300 tonnes of steel lifted into place.

When completed the stadium will have 4300 tonnes of steel used to form the seating bowl and roof.

The stadium will be the first on the east coast to have a viewing room, with Perth Stadium the only other one in the country allowing for a rare look in.

The stadium design is also intended to enhance crowd experience, with the seats positioned at 33.9 degrees; making it the steepest in the country. The plans also show that more than 100 LED TVs spanning 1000 sqm will be placed 360 degrees around the stadium, with sub woofers designed in the roof to provide surround sound.
