Dear Blue and Gold Army,

We are very excited to welcome the announcement of the new Western Sydney Stadium, a $300 million world class venue boasting 30,000 premium seats which will be the future home of our Club.

We stand proud as the Club with the largest membership and supporter base in Western Sydney, and we want to ensure that we provide you with the absolute best game day experience and facilities in Australia.

When combined with the $130m redevelopment of the adjacent Parramatta Leagues Club, the new Western Sydney Stadium will revolutionise the spectator experience, and we will deliver a sports and entertainment precinct unmatched by any other in the country.

The new stadium will provide pedestrian and public transport links and improved access to Parramatta Park. The design boasts Australia’s steepest stands allowing our fans to be closer to the action, along with an activation precinct and WiFi to deliver the best fan experience.

While the new venue is scheduled to open in 2019, existing Eels members over the next two seasons will have priority seating for the new stadium as part of your membership packages.

The Parramatta Leagues Club redevelopment will commence in February 2017 with the car park, followed by multiple leisure and entertainment facilities and a 200-room hotel. The Leagues Club will more than double its workforce and inject millions of dollars into the Parramatta economy.

We are excited about the future and looking forward to coming back home with you when this word class venue is completed in 2019!

The NRL said today the new Western Sydney Stadium would bring a new level of comfort and entertainment for rugby league fans.

CEO Todd Greenberg said he had no doubt it would quickly become one of Sydney’s premier sporting venues.

“We have always said that the best way to attract bigger attendances is by providing fans with better facilities,” he said.

“This stadium will bring fans closer to the action than ever and have all the modern comforts that fans deserve.

“When you consider that the stadium will also be near transport, restaurants and other services I have no doubt it will be a huge boost for our fans.

“The NRL looks forward to working closely with the NSW Government on the detailed design and delivery of the new stadium.”
