Sport and entertainment will now be enjoyed in the modern-day engineering and architectural marvel of the new Sydney Football Stadium. Completed and officially opened in late 2022, the stunning stadium is home to Sydney Football Club, The NSW Waratah’s Rugby and the Sydney Roosters RLC. Currently, the SFS is host to the 2023 FIFA Womens World Cup.

Designed for construction by Aurecon, alongside partners Cox Architecture, John Holland, Schlaich Bergermann Partner and the NSW Government. Early and collaborative involvement with the architect and contractor was critical for achieving the tight design and construction timeframe.

Aurecon was the structural engineer designing the 42,500-seat stadium which is a key component of the NSW Government’s stadia strategy and investment to promote a strong cultural and sporting sector in the state.

Proudly funded by the NSW Government, the new Sydney Football Stadium is a modern, world-class venue that provides Sydney with a sporting and entertainment precinct of an international standard for decades to come.
