The Department has now received a detailed development application for Stage 2 of the Sydney Football Stadium redevelopment project. In this application, Infrastructure NSW (INSW) is seeking approval for the detailed design, construction and operation of the stadium, including:

  • Up to 45,000 seats (additional 10,000 - person capacity in the playing field in concert mode) in four tiers including general admission areas, members seating and corporate and premium seating
  • Roof cover over all permanent seats, a rectangular playing pitch, sports and stadium administration areas
  • A mezzanine level with staff and operational areas and internal pedestrian zones
  • A basement level (at the level of the playing pitch) accommodating pedestrian and vehicular circulation zones, 50 car parking spaces, facilities for teams and officials, media and broadcasting areas, storage and internal loading areas
  • Food and drink kiosks, corporate and media facilities; and soft landscaped roof top areas.


Also proposed is the construction and establishment of a public domain at the site comprising hard and soft landscaping works, publicly accessible event and operational areas, public art, pedestrian and cycling facilities, signage zones and wayfinding signage strategy within the site, and lighting design. The Moore Park Carpark 1 (MP1) would be reinstated upon completion of construction works with 540 car spaces and direct access to the new stadium basement.


The Stage 2 application seeks approval for the operation of the stadium for the purpose of a range of sports and entertainment events.


Consultation and feedback

Sydney Football Stadium Stage 2 application was on exhibition in July 2019.


The Department welcomed feedback from the community, government agencies and other stakeholders during public exhibition. This feedback will help us better understand the opinions and concerns of the community, which will inform our assessment of the project.


All submissions received for the Stage 2 application are available on the Department’s Major Projects website.


INSW has now lodged a Response to Submissions (RTS) report to address issues raised by the community, Council and other government agencies during the exhibition period. The RTS report is now publicly available.
