Rugby Australia has welcomed today’s announcement by the NSW Government of the appointment of a construction contractor for the redevelopment of Allianz Stadium.
Rugby Australia Chief Executive, Raelene Castle said: “Rugby Australia welcomes today’s announcement that works for the new Allianz Stadium will proceed.
“Rugby Australia has in place significant content deals with the NSW Government which are predicated on its stadiums plan being delivered.
“We have continuously stressed the need for world-class stadiums in Sydney to attract the biggest events, such as the Rugby World Cup. These events not only position Sydney as a truly global city but deliver significant economic impact to the State.
“In order to attract fans to our games, new and old, we need our stadiums to match their expectations in terms of accessibility, amenity, technology, comfort and overall experience.
“We look forward to working with the successful contractor to ensure that the new Allianz Stadium delivers on this and provides a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
“The NSW Government under Premier Gladys Berejiklian have shown strong vision and leadership in forging ahead with plans to deliver world-class stadiums for New South Wales.”
