How can we help?

What does the upgrade mean for members and season ticket holders?

  • Panthers ticketed members will be accommodated in the new western grandstand, accompanied by upgraded food and beverage outlets and enhanced toilet facilities.  

  • The club intends for current ticketed members to retain the chance to secure comparable seating positions upon the club’s return to the revamped stadium, noting that seating arrangements are still subject to the final design processes.

Access to seats in 2024 will remain the same as 2023. Until the venue is fully designed, no commitments can be made of future members seating. 

Penrith Panthers are currently determining the venue for home games during the construction phase. Panthers are dedicated to prioritising its members by providing them with preferential seating options.

  • To facilitate the redevelopment, the stadium is expected to close after the 2024 NRL season.  

  • The construction period is expected to be complete in 2026, with an aim to minimise impacts to the 2026 NRL season.  

  • Construction timeframes are subject to planning and procurement processes. 

  • Infrastructure NSW will work with all stakeholders to minimise the impact on the community and current users of Penrith Stadium.

  • Venues NSW and Panthers will work closely on the NRL and NRLW home match schedule during the construction period when Penrith Stadium is unavailable. 

  • Where possible, Venues NSW will work with Penrith Panthers to relocate matches to the Venues NSW network, including CommBank Stadium (Parramatta), Allianz Stadium (Moore Park) and Accor Stadium (Sydney OIympic Park).

  • The redeveloped Penrith Stadium will meet modern accessibility requirements for a diverse range of people with different ages, gender, backgrounds, and mobility.  

  • The number of female toilets will substantially increase, with the number of universal access seats will also increase to better cater for visitors.

There will be limited operational car parking on site. Additional parking exists in various public car parks in and around the Penrith CBD.

Sydney Water is in the process of designing and installing new plant to improve the known issue associated with the sewerage pumping station. This is scheduled to be complete at the same time as the stadium is reopened.

  • This much-needed upgrade to the stadium aims to increase the capacity and facilities of a modern venue.  A variety of hospitality spaces will be available for members on event days and some spaces will be available on non-event days for hosting meetings and social functions. 

  • The overall capacity will be finalised as the detailed design is developed. The balance between corporate and members seating will be carefully considered. Until the venue is fully designed, no commitments can be made of future members seating.

Venues NSW will take a fan first approach and focus on family-friendly pricing options to best serve the Penrith Panthers fans and the people of the Greater Penrith region.
