PIRTEK Stadium to expand by 4000 seats

PIRTEK Stadium’s seating capacity will be increased by almost 4,000 seats after a Venues NSW request to upgrade the sportsground.

The proposal, which was approved by the Joint Regional Planning Panel last week, will cost approximately $26 million.

Lodged in December 2013, the proposal seeks to make alternations to the stadium’s northern, southern and eastern stands to increase its seating capacity by 3,827.

A second application for works to the O’Connell St stadium’s western grandstand is currently under assessment.
