Sydney Olympic Park stadium plans revealed

The NSW Government has revealed the new plans for the $810 million redevelopment of the ANZ Stadium in Sydney Olympic Park.

The plans include reducing the stadium’s capacity from 85,500 to 70,000 and capacity for a further 20,000 people on the field for concerts.

The plans also include changing the playing field from an oval to a rectangular shape.

The seating in the lower and middle sections would be redeveloped to give people a better view of the field, while parts of the northern and southern sections of the roof would be replaced to ensure all seats will be covered and protected from rain.

Other features include new entrances at the northern and southern facades and new advertising signs provided at both entrances. Food and beverage concessions will also be upgraded.

The public will have until October 23 to comment on the plans.
