The 2014 State Infrastructure Strategy Update prepared by Infrastructure NSW recommended that options be explored for a multi-use indoor arena in a strategic Sydney location. As part of its commitment to Rebuilding the Major Stadia Network in NSW, the Government allocated $500,000 to the Office of Sport from the Sports and Cultural Fund to complete feasibility, design, and concept work for an indoor sports arena near the Sydney CBD.
The Feasibility Study commenced in January 2017 and is expected to be completed by mid-2017. Key stakeholders to be consulted during the development of the Feasibility Study include a range of sports, government agencies and venue operators.
Subject to the findings of the Feasibility Study, a Preliminary Business Case may be commissioned by the Office of Sport for consideration by the NSW Government. This work is expected to commence in September this year 2017.
More information will be provided as it comes to hand.
