The Bankwest Stadium Community Open Day on Sunday, April 14, has almost 30,000 free tickets redeemed for the 1-hour sessions allowing guests to see inside the stadium for the first time.
The Western Sydney stadium will host club legends, mascots and available players from home clubs the Parramatta Eels, Western Sydney Wanderers, Wests Tigers and NSW Waratahs throughout the four sessions over the course of the day.
NSW Minister for Sport, John Sidoti, said the event is a great opportunity for the public to see the new stadium.
“This stadium will be a game-changer for sport in NSW and indeed will be a facility for everyone in our community, with the venue to host a range of sport, entertainment, business and cultural events each year.
“The Community Open Day is an opportunity for the public to see this magnificent new stadium and the facilities that it will provide for the public, as well as our sporting codes and clubs,” Mr Sidoti said.
Bankwest Stadium CEO, Daryl Kerry, said the event is also an opportunity to test and gauge the public’s perception of the new stadium.
“This stadium is unashamedly for the fans and you can gauge the level of excitement in the community by the number of people who have already locked in their tickets for Open Day,” Mr Kerry said.
“Ticket-holders will see how much closer to the action they will be and get to mingle with representatives from the clubs and codes that will call the stadium home in 2019.
“Open Day is also about the fans helping us test their stadium before the big events start in 2019,” he said.
The open day will allow ticket holders to loop around the Level 1 Concourse, find their seats for upcoming events, experience the steep grandstands, explore Australia’s first Field Club and a see a side-of-field view at pitch level.
