Parramatta Eels Supporters Website
I said before The new stadium at Parramatta was started that it required a retractable roof. This was poo-pood by the "experts" Now that the stadium is flooded they have gone rather quiet. The company building the new More Park stadium refused on the weekend to say that fans seated under the roof would remain dry during rain.! These stadiums are being built to get the conservative state government elected in 2019. That is the plan. Let us hope that the law of unintended consequences prevails.
LOL Robbie theres no drainage yet.
Here is the Business Case from Infrastructure NSW... unless you know otherwise.
Infrastructure NSW has summarised the Final Business Case for the development of the SFS at Moore Park.
The Business Case considered three options for the redevelopment of the SFS, against a "do minimum” Base Case. The three options include (1) refurbishment of the existing stadium, (2) “new build” with 40,000 seats, and (3) “new build” with 45,000 seats.
In summary, the Business Case clearly demonstrates that rebuilding the SFS, with either 40,000 or 45,000 seats is a better option than refurbishing the existing venue. The quantifiable economic benefits of a new stadium fall slightly short of the economic costs.
However, the unsustainable nature of the alternative to do only enough work to keep the stadium open, suggests that rebuilding is an acceptable option. Click here to view it in full.
I hope it’s as good as the old SFS. I loved that ground, so many fond memories. The 98 preliminary final wasn’t one of them.
Agree , it’s one of the best stadiums to this day to watch NRL at .
