With the old Parramatta Stadium now gone Western Sydney’s new $360 million purpose-built stadium, now three quarters completed, is taking shape.

Bankwest Stadium is the ground’s official new name, after establishing a seven-year partnership between the New South Wales government and Bankwest for naming-rights of the venue.

NSW Minister for Sport and Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres described the company’s commitment to the naming rights of the venue as “a huge vote of confidence in the region.

“This deal is important for the Stadium to be financially self-sustaining,” Ayres said.

“Bankwest Stadium is a game changer for sports fans across Western Sydney.”

The club announced this week that memberships for 2019's season had already broken Parramatta’s full season membership record.

The 30,000 capacity stadium is expected to create approximately 1200 jobs during construction, and between 600 and 900 jobs once operational.

Bankwest managing director Rowan Munchenberg described the venue as a “critical piece of community infrastructure” in the “vibrant, diverse and growing corridor of Western Sydney”.

Bankwest Stadium is on track for a 2019 opening, with 14 regular-season NRL games commencing with Parramatta Eels versus Wests Tigers scheduled on Easter Monday.

The $30 million project is being delivered by a Lendlease consortium, which won the contract to design and build the stadium in late 2017, along with architect Populous managing the stadium design, and Aspect Studios responsible for the public realm surrounding the venue.
