NSW Stadia Strategy
MI Associates worked with the NSW Office of Sport, assessing the requirements to support the decisions regarding stadia upgrades in NSW.
On the 4th September, NSW Premier Mike Baird and Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres announced the biggest investment in sport and major event infrastructure in NSW since the 2000 Sydney Olympics, with a new 30,000 seat stadium at Parramatta the first project to be delivered as part of the package.
More than $1 billion will be invested in the stadia network over the next decade. $600 million has been set aside in Rebuilding NSW and the NSW Government will provide a further allocation of funding to complete the projects. “A global city like Sydney needs world class sporting venues and this investment will ensure fans and sporting teams has the facilities they deserve,” Mr Baird said.
Paul Doorn, from the Office of Sport noted that the technical knowledge and research capabilities of MI Associates regarding stadia requirements provided great assistance to the Office of Sport in informing the stadia strategy.
