The Sydney Roosters have today welcomed the announcement of the redevelopment of Allianz Stadium to a world-class venue, which will be the future home of the Foundation Club.
“We welcome today’s announcement by the NSW Government, which will ensure that Sydney Roosters Members, Corporate Partners and Supporters are provided with world-class facilities.
In a world first, the new Stadium will operate in two modes – ‘Club Mode’ with a 30,000 capacity and ‘Championship Mode’ which will open the stadium to a 45,000 capacity.
This configuration will provide an unparalleled match day experience,” said Roosters Chief Executive Joe Kelly.

Together with the other members of the Alliance of Moore Park Sports, the Roosters will work closely with the NSW Government and SCG Trust to ensure that the common aim of the delivery of world-leading facilities for spectators, athletes and officials is achieved.
The new venue is scheduled to open in 2021 with development to commence upon the conclusion of the 2018 NRL season.
Throughout the redevelopment, Sydney Roosters Members will continue to have access to priority seating as part of their membership packages, with home games scheduled to be played at Allianz Stadium to be relocated to the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
“Not only do the Roosters – and the game of rugby league – boast a proud history at the SCG, it’s also pleasing that we are able to ensure that any dislocation to our Members and stakeholders throughout the redevelopment is minimal, as our temporary home ground, the recently-renovated SCG, is located within the same precinct,” said Mr Kelly.
The Sydney Roosters will continue to keep Members, Corporate Partners and Supporters updated throughout the redevelopment.
