$2 Billion Dollar Revamp For Sydney's Major Stadiums

The NSW Government Just Voted To Tear Down Sydney Olympic Stadium

Rugby League fans in New South Wales will secure the world-class facilities they deserve under the new stadium program unveiled by the NSW Government today.

In their place will be a new rectangular football stadium at the Moore Park site that will seat approximately 45,000 people, and a multi-purpose stadium at Homebush with a seating capacity expected to reach between 75,000 and 80,000 people.

The announcement brings to an end a long and protracted negotiation period that began when then-premier Mike Baird first floated the stadium redevelopment deal some 18 months ago.

ANZ Stadium is expected to take three years to rebuild while Allianz will be completed by 2019, a generous timeframe indeed.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler could play without practicing this week
Jones is all over the field in every game, with speed and the ability to make the big hit when a play calls for it. If Cutler can't go, Matt Moore will draw the start for Miami.

This will ensure the NRL Grand Final will remain in Sydney.

The package also includes the cost of rebuilding Parramatta Stadium.

Sydney's Olympic Stadium will be rebuilt a year after the smaller Allianz Stadium gets the same treatment, with the combined works to reportedly cost $2 billion.

However, NSW opposition and Labor leader Luke Foley does not support the redevelopment of Allianz Stadium and has stated he does not agree with the application of funds to the project. Is the Waratahs vs the Bulls in Super Rugby going to get 45,000 people?
