The winning design for the future Sydney Football Stadium was released today after an intense design competition between the best architectural firms in Australia.
Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the new Sydney Football Stadium will set the standard for rectangular stadiums in Australia.
“The new Sydney Football Stadium and Western Sydney stadiums will bring Sydney stadia into the 21st century,” Mr Ayres said. “Sydney Football Stadium is a stadium for fans that will offer an experience like no other. “From technology and design to amazing views it’s nothing short of world class.” Cox Architects delivered the stand out design to beat two other firms in an intense design competition.
“The state of the art roof is one of the most impressive features of this new stadium designed to reflect noise back into the stadium and the whole underside can be lit up in the home team’s colours, creating a colosseum of light and sound,” Mr Ayres said.
“Just like Western Sydney Stadium, we’ve used the natural environment as inspiration in the design, with a striking bronze façade in place that reflects Sydney’s unique sandstone geology, and a lightweight cloud-like roof structure.”
“NSW is leading the country in every way: infrastructure, low unemployment and a bright future, and now we send a clear message to other states: we won’t be beaten as the home of sport and entertainment,” Mr Ayres said.
“The experience the new Sydney Football Stadium will offer will be of the quality, safety and experience Sydney has been crying out for for decades.” The future Sydney Football Stadium will be complete by 2022.
