Construction of Sydney Football Stadium Marks Milestone | Latest rugby news

The Waratahs’ new home at Sydney Football Stadium has reached a milestone with the world-class stadium now 80% complete.

The last pieces of steel for the roof are currently being put in place, as the seating design by award-winning Indigenous artist Tony Albert makes remarkable progress.

When complete, the stadium will offer 42,500 covered seats and the best facilities for members and businesses, all located closer to the action than ever before.

The gaming experience for Waratahs fans will be the envy of the rugby world, with an open lobby offering unobstructed views from the pitch from the vast array of new Merivale food and drink outlets available in the stadium.

The team’s new facilities, including four gender neutral changing rooms that will allow men and women to play Double Super Rugby, as well as new medical rooms, wetlands, warm-up rooms and swimming pools Salvage will provide the Waratah with the best facilities to thrive on the domain.

The SFS is expected to be completed virtually in July 2022 and will be the home ground for the Waratahs starting in the 2023 season.

Waratahs 2022 members will have priority seats for the 2023 season, so for the chance to secure the best seats in the stadium, register now.
