NEW WESTERN SYDNEY STADIUM IN PARRAMATTA
WHEN WILL CONSTRUCTION BEGIN ON THE NEW WESTERN SYDNEY STADIUM?
The demolition of the old Parramatta has commenced, with construction due to commence on the new Stadium in July this year. Stay up-to-date with the stadium project here.
WHEN WILL THE NEW WESTERN SYDNEY STADIUM BE READY?
The new Parramatta Stadium is expected to be ready in mid-2019 just in time for the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League Season.
WHAT WILL THE NEW WESTERN SYDNEY STADIUM LOOK LIKE?
The new Parramatta Stadium will be rectangular and seat 30,000, with final plans and designs expected to be available mid-2017. The latest update on the development was released in March 2017 and you can see the latest information here.
WHERE WILL THE WANDERERS PLAY DURING THE CONSTRUCTION PERIOD?
While the new Parramatta Stadium is under construction, the Wanderers are contracted to play a minimum of eight (8) home matches at Spotless Stadium and a maximum of five (5) home matches at ANZ Stadium each season.
HOW WILL SEATS BE ALLOCATED AT YOUR NEW PARRAMATTA STADIUM? WILL I HAVE THE SAME SEAT?
With the final seat plans and designs set to be released soon, the seating arrangement at your new Parramatta Stadium will be different to that of the old Pirtek Stadium, as well as your current seating at our temporary venues Spotless and ANZ stadiums.
We will be working through the membership transition process for our return to Wanderland and we are committed to ensure the process is as smooth and stress free for all Members.
As such we have put together the following criteria for seat allocations will be based on the:
- Membership Loyalty – Members that have held a continuous Membership since our Foundation year will have first priority in the seat allocation process
- Membership category – Your Membership will then be assigned by the category you have held for those years starting with Red reserved seating through to flexi and non-ticketed Membership
- Member match day attendance – To a lesser extent Members with the best match day attendance record will be elevated to reward continuous support on match day
Please note: Your seat allocation will also be determined by the Membership category you hold in the season prior to our move to the new Parramatta Stadium (expected to be season 2019/20) and the three seasons at Spotless and ANZ Stadium count towards your Membership loyalty. If you allow your Membership to lapse for the 2016/17, 2017/18 or 2018/19 season, your position within the seating allocation process will be reset to reflect this change in your Membership loyalty.
