Wyndham City Stadium – design description
Final concept for Western United FC's stadium lost much of the appeal in initial renders from 2018. In fact, the stadium has been designed entirely differently than early images suggested, without any outer wrap, with much simplified layout and structure.
The seating bowl was also redesigned, resulting in an even more compact and robust bowl, this time with all fans on a single tier. The auditorium is kept very steep in order to create better atmosphere. Capacity has been retained at 15,000.
Also unchanged is the location, in Tarneit, a remote area of Wyndham. This city decided to enter the first stadium public-private partnership of the A-League, which will result with the league's first private stadium. The project is expected to consume $180 million.
Australia: The champions from Melbourne with their own stadium?
Just 4 years after founding the club, Western United FC have recently triumphed in the Australian A-League. However, they have not had a permanent home since the beginning, and in the last 3 years have played matches at ... 6 different stadiums! This is about to change soon.
Melbourne: Construction of new Western United stadium in early 2021
A-League club Western United FC will build a brand new stadium in the Tarneit district on the outskirts of Wyndham, west of Melbourne. Construction of the venue is expected to cost AU$150 m (€ 91 million), AU$30 m (€ 18 million) less as initially estimated a year ago. Construction of the facility will be possible through the use of the "value capture" financial model and should start in early 2021.
