Media reports this week suggest major new sites are expected to be built in South East Queensland, Canberra and West Sydney.
In West Sydney, the Penrith Panthers are expected to benefit from the NSW government’s decision to support a series of suburban stadium developments with its Panthers stadium due to be demolished and rebuilt by the end of the year. next year.
As reported by the Sydney Morning Herald, sources with knowledge of the business cases carried out for the Penrith, Kogarah, Brookvale and Liverpool venues revealed that a redevelopment of the Panthers Stadium was awaiting final approval from the New Wales Government of South for the construction of a building with 25,000 to 30,000 places. location.
Scheduled for completion as early as 2025, the business case for the new site has been aided by the growth of the region, with the region’s population expected to increase by approximately 60,000 over the next 10 years.
In Queensland, Ipswich in far west Brisbane are working to develop a 20,500-seat stadium as a potential home for the Brisbane Jets as the club seek to become the 17th team in the NRL.
Ipswich Mayor Teresa Harding said the plans could tie Ipswich’s past as a rugby league stronghold to the future growth of the NRL, telling the Brisbane Times “our community is the historic home and spiritual player of the rugby league and one of the country’s top elite producers of NRL talent
âIt makes sense to invest in social infrastructure that will support our growing population and provide a channel for local talent in our region.
The $ 236 million North Ipswich Stadium has not received final approval and $ 2.5 million for a detailed business case is still requested from the Queensland and federal governments.
However, Ipswich City Council has approved two concepts to update the existing North Ipswich reserve, just above the David Trumpy Bridge in the middle of town.
The Brisbane Jets’ bid to join the NRL was submitted to the Australian Rugby League Commission last week, along with competing offers from the Brisbane Firehawks and Redcliffe Dolphins.
The Dolphins have the 11,500-seat Moreton Daily Stadium, where a new grandstand was recently added.
Each club hopes to become the 17th team in the NRL, and the first since the Titans arrived from the Gold Coast in 2007.
The decision on the 17th team, which would join the league in 2023, is expected this month.
Ipswich City Council is currently evaluating a business case for the two stadium options before making a formal request for financial assistance.
