The NSW Government has merged Venues NSW and the Sydney Cricket & Sports Ground Trust (SCGT) to create a single organisation for NSW sporting and entertainment venues, to attract blockbuster events and drive economic activity across the State.
Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said this new entity presents tremendous opportunities for the people of NSW to ensure taxpayers receive maximum bang for their buck.
“This merger is about placing NSW in the best possible position to attract the most exciting and sought-after events so the entire State can benefit from the economic stimulation,” Mr Lee said.
“We have made the investment in stadiums and infrastructure which are the envy of the world and now it’s time to ensure we get maximum returns”.
As part of this merger ANZ Stadium has reverted to its original name of Stadium Australia. Changing the name of such a well-known and well patronised venue is complex, however, the process of renaming all online communication channels and signage is well underway.
Welcome back Stadium Australia!
