See the official Bankwest Media Release here

CommBank has expanded its support for Western Sydney to help the region recover and re-build after being one of the hardest hit in the country with COVID-19 lock-downs.

As part of its expanded commitment, the bank has today announced two significant investments, a multi-year partnership for a Western Sydney landmark and funding to help local small businesses with the opportunity to connect with more customers.

The multi-year partnership with Venues NSW is for the naming-rights of Western Sydney Stadium. Bankwest Stadium will officially become known as CommBank Stadium from Friday 1 October. Located in the heart of Parramatta, the 30,000-seat stadium has firmly established itself as an iconic and critical piece of community infrastructure for sport and entertainment, as well as for diverse business, cultural and community events.

CommBank has also announced a $120,000 investment to help small businesses in the 12 Western Sydney Local Government Areas (LGA) that have been subject to the harder lockdown restrictions. CommBank will be working with Chamber Alliance of Western Sydney to help small business in these LGAs to market their activities as the region comes out of lock down in the lead up to Christmas. Activities will include local advertising and social media, to tailored initiatives for small businesses in these areas.

Commonwealth Bank CEO, Matt Comyn, said: “Western Sydney is one of fastest growing regions in the country, and a key engine room for the national economy. We know the area has been hit hard by the recent COVID-19 restrictions and we’re committed to investing in Western Sydney to help businesses get back on their feet and re-build after an incredibly challenging 2021.”

“We are committed to their long-term success and we want to re-connect small businesses with their communities, because these businesses are the lifeline of our economy.

“We’re also excited to continue backing the stadium within the CBA Group – it has been a valuable facility in providing economic opportunities to the area and will continue to be an important part of the community, particularly through recovery as the local areas and New South Wales starts to reopen,” Mr Comyn said.

Minister for Western Sydney, The Hon. Stuart Ayres, said: “Western Sydney businesses and communities are resilient and we will re-build to be stronger, but it will take the support of many and it’s encouraging to see CBA committed to supporting small businesses and Greater Western Sydney.”

Minister for Sport, Natalie Ward, said: “The stadium offers a world-class experience and has fast become a fan favourite. It will be fantastic to see supporters back at the newly-named CommBank Stadium, once the health advice says it’s safe to do so.”

The announcement follows yesterday’s NSW Government announcement of the new WestInvest Fund for Western Sydney.

CBA’s investment in Western Sydney complements the bank’s existing partnerships with Football Australia as the official naming rights partner and bank of the national women’s team, the Matildas, Junior Matildas and Young Matildas.

The Western Sydney Stadium partnership and Chamber Alliance program are in addition to other local support measures offered by the bank, which include: coronavirus support measures, opening 14 dedicated vaccination centres for staff and members of their household across various LGAs of concern and providing small businesses with access to counselling services to help alleviate any mental stress.

For small businesses, CBA is also running a webinar series throughout October, specifically for Western Sydney businesses to help them navigate the flow on impacts of the COVID-19 restrictions. Topics will cover ecommerce strategy, safely receiving payments online, driving sales online and mental health webinars facilitated by Smiling Mind.

Working with the Stadium, CBA is also scheduling a business fair early in the New Year to support Western Sydney businesses.

NSW Government Launches ‘Shoosh For Kids’ Campaign at Bankwest Stadium

See the full NSW Government Release here

The message is simple: show respect and shoosh for the kids this winter.

The NSW Government has today launched its Shoosh For Kids Winter Awareness Month at Bankwest Stadium, aimed at addressing poor spectator behaviour at junior sport.

Following a hiatus in 2020 due to COVID-19, the campaign is making a strong comeback, with a record 21 sector partners and more than 600 sporting clubs and associations already signed up to take part in the initiaitive.

Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said with larger groups back at community sport it’s essential to keep sideline comments and behaviour positive.

“With a full season to look forward to this winter, the Shoosh for Kids message is more important than ever,” Mr Lee said.

“It’s great to see larger crowds and families back at community sport, and we all have a responsibility to ensure it is a fun, safe environment for children. One of the best ways we can do this is to keep comments positive so that kids want to keep playing and enjoying the benefits that sport offers.”

Founding partner of Shoosh for Kids and NSW Rugby League (NSWRL) CEO David Trodden said the campaign is vital in ensuring kids keep returning to junior sport.

“The NSWRL is proud to have helped launch this campaign six years ago and we’re thrilled the campaign has now broadened across the sport sector,” Mr Trodden said.

“We are very passionate about creating an enjoyable and positive environment to ensure kids want to come back each week, and most of all, have fun playing!”

In addition to new state sporting organisation partners, the network of 65 PCYC clubs across NSW have joined Shoosh for Kids for the first time, expanding the reach of the campaign to more than 70,000 youth that attend clubs and programs.

PCYC NSW CEO Dominic Teakle said the organisation was proud to join forces with the Office of Sport to help address negative spectator behaviour.

“The campaign aligns with one of our fundamental values – Respect – so we’re excited to be on board with this fantastic initiative led by the NSW Government,” Mr Teakle said.

“We know that young people thrive with positive adult role models and the Shoosh for Kids initiative reinforces positive, supportive behaviours in sport.”

Shoosh for Kids Winter Awareness Month will run from 1 to 31 May 2021, with free resources available to clubs and associations that sign up throughout the campaign.

Two Years In and We’re Just Getting Started

Bankwest Stadium celebrates two years since official opening

Two years of cheers, jeers and unforgettable moments . . . today marks two years since Bankwest Stadium opened its gates for the first time and changed the venue experience in Australia.

Since opening on 14 April, 2019, Bankwest Stadium has welcomed more than 900,000 fans through the turnstiles at more than 100 sport and entertainment events, won a host of awards and been embraced by the Greater Sydney community.

Bankwest Stadium is owned by Venues NSW on behalf of the NSW Government and operated by VenuesLive, a leading Australian-based provider of management and hospitality services to venues and events.

Designed and constructed by Lendlease in conjunction with architect Populous and engineering company Aurecon and delivered by Infrastructure NSW, the Stadium has quickly become part of the fabric of Western Sydney.

From the Parramatta Eels’ Easter Monday blitz and the Western Sydney Wanderers’ Sydney Derby win to Cold Chisel’s unforgettable first concert at the Stadium and Elton John’s emotional Tour closer . . . Bankwest Stadium has played host to some iconic sport and entertainment moments in the past two years.

But it hasn’t been challenge-free, with the COVID-19 pandemic having a major impact on the sports and entertainment industry.

Out of the gloom rose opportunity with Bankwest Stadium becoming one of the first venues in the world to be deemed COVID Safe and able to return to hosting events, and was soon called upon to help the NRL and A-League complete their seasons under strict COVID Safe protocols.

The Stadium diversified during the pandemic, hosting unique, COVID Safe community events like the Disney+ Drive-In and Pixar Putt.

With fans returning and venues now at 100% capacity, Bankwest Stadium is back doing what it does best: hosting events and delivering an unparalleled event experience for fans.

But the Stadium isn’t just for sport and entertainment in Sydney’s west . . . it has also become a place of gathering for the wider community.

More than 30,000 additional people have attended the Stadium for functions, business meetings, community and cultural events since its opening. A kids’ playground and a basketball court were built on the eastern boardwalk and have proved extremely popular with the local community.

The Stadium has hosted international football, international rugby union, international rugby league, global music acts and a host of domestic sport as well as thousands of business meetings, private functions and community and cultural events.

Since opening in 2019 the Stadium has also won 13 awards, including being the first Stadium in the world to announce the LEED v4 Gold standard for sustainable design.

Minerva Network Welcomes NSW Government Funding for Her Sport Her Way Strategy

Minerva Network Chairman Christine McLoughlin today thanked the NSW Government for its funding support for the network, which is developing Australia’s elite female athletes as role models and leaders in our community.

Ms McLoughlin said the NSW Government’s vision and support would enable the Minerva Network to work closely with the Office of Sport on partnership opportunities with the Her Sport Her Way Women In Sport strategy.

“Together we can shape the future of women’s sport in NSW and indeed throughout Australia,” Ms McLoughlin said.

“The Minerva Network is committed to helping our elite athletes become inspirational role models for the next generation of young Australians, and to identify projects in their respective communities where they can step in as leaders, encourage activity and bring about social cohesion.”

The Minerva Network is currently working with more than 150 of Australia’s leading female athletes across 35 sports to adapt and adjust in the age of COVID-19, which has severely disrupted their sporting careers.

“One of the consequences of  the COVID pandemic is the reinforcement to our athletes of the need to think about their careers and their lives off the field, so we are spending a lot of time exploring career and life planning,” Ms McLoughlin said.

“We are helping our athletes to be resilient in these challenging times and they, in turn, will pass on their knowledge and experience to the Next Generation of young athletes, and show them the value of sport in their lives.”

Established in early 2018, the Minerva Network connects Australia’s elite stars of women’s sport with the nation’s most inspiring female business leaders.

The Minerva Network’s foundation class of athletes has included some of the biggest names in Australian sport – cricketers Rachael Haynes and Alyssa Healy, Olympic Rugby 7s gold medallists Alicia Quirk, Emma Tonegato and Charlotte Caslick, Matildas defender Ellie Carpenter and Western Sydney Wanderers’ indigenous star Jada Whyman, Jillaroos and NSW rugby league player Kezie Apps, Paralympic champion Madison de Rozario; and Australian netball stars Maddy Proud and Paige Hadley.

The Office of Sport’s Her Sport Her Way strategy aims to build a stronger sport sector where women and girls are valued, recognised and have equal choices and opportunities to lead and participate.

Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee announced the funding and partnership at Bankwest Stadium today alongside Ms McLoughlin, Minerva Network Co-Founder Sam Mostyn and Minerva Network stars Madison de Rozario, Georgie Rowe, Jada Whyman and Elana Withnall.

Minister Lee said the partnership between the NSW Government and the Minerva Network will see increased opportunities for athlete development and mentoring in the lead up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“The NSW Government is proud to back the work of the Minerva Network as their stars receive expert guidance on how to lead and inspire on and off the field,” Mr Lee said.

“Inspirational role models will have a direct impact on participation as well because young girls and women see the benefits sport and an active lifestyle can bring.”

“This is a match made to fly,” Ms Mcloughlin said of the potential for Minerva Network Stars to work more closely with the next generation of young Australians.

“We see examples every day where our emerging female sporting champions are engaging with and inspiring young Australians, whether that be our world champion women’s cricket team, the amazing Matildas, our stars of women’s rugby, WRL and AFLW, or our athletes preparing for the Tokyo 2021 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

NSW will be at the forefront of two major upcoming women’s sporting events, with Sydney to host the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 and the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 Final.

Minerva Network was established by a group of leading Australian businesswomen passionate about empowering professional women athletes on and off the field. Minerva Founders and Leaders include Christine McLoughlin, Chairman of Suncorp Group; Sam Mostyn, former AFL Commissioner and Chair of Citi Australia; Romilly Madew, CEO of Infrastructure Australia; Kate Aitken, Vice-President Human Resources at Optus; Sue Cato, Partner at Cato & Clive; Ann Sherry, Chairman at Enero Group; Raelene Castle, former CEO of Rugby Australia; Christina Matthews, CEO of the WACA; Peggy O’Neal, President of Richmond FC; and Kate Palmer, former CEO of Sport Australia.

Fans to return to Bankwest Stadium from this Friday

The fans will be back cheering at Bankwest Stadium this weekend with more than 600 patrons to be permitted into the venue from Friday, subject to NSW Health guidelines.

Acting Minister for Sport, the Hon. Geoff Lee, confirmed today that the NSW Government would permit up to 50 people in each corporate space at NRL events from this weekend.

“Any sporting venues with separate seating areas will be able to have spectators seated and served food and drink in those spaces,” said the Minister.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the NRL to take advantage of, and part of getting people back to normal life, but still keeping the community as safe as possible.”

Bankwest Stadium will host three NRL games this weekend, beginning with the Parramatta Eels v Penrith Panthers on Friday night.

Bankwest Stadium proud to officially partner with Western Sydney University

Julian Keith

Bankwest Stadium is pleased to announce Western Sydney University as the Stadium’s exclusive Community and Education Partner.

The partnership brings together two organisations dedicated to making a positive impact on the communities of Western Sydney and beyond.

Bankwest Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry said today: “Bankwest Stadium is committed to supporting the wellbeing and education of all Australians, and as a thriving hub of community activity, the Stadium understands and embraces the opportunity it has to make a positive difference in this area.

“We are proud to partner with Western Sydney University, whose Parramatta City campus and Parramatta South campus are just down the road from the Stadium, and we look forward to sharing our passion for NSW and the Western Sydney region with them.”

Western Sydney University’s Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Barney Glover AO welcomed the new partnership between the University and Bankwest Stadium.

“The five-year partnership will provide a wealth of educational and practical opportunities for Western Sydney University students and staff to engage with a world-class sporting facility,” said Professor Glover.

“Bankwest Stadium is an exciting new sporting and entertainment hub for the Greater Western Sydney community to enjoy.”

As a key pillar of the partnership, Western Sydney University will have a permanent sponsorship presence within Bankwest Stadium through in-stadium signage for the duration of the partnership.

The 30,000-seat Bankwest Stadium opened its doors to the public with a Community Open Day on Sunday 14 April and has already hosted blockbuster sporting events and a series of business, community and cultural events.

More than 30 sport and entertainment events are already confirmed for the Stadium, with more to be announced.

The Stadium will host hundreds of additional meetings, functions and community events, with more than 600,000 people expected through the gates in its first nine months of operation.

New Bankwest Stadium external signs light up Parramatta for the first time

New Bankwest Stadium external signs light up Parramatta for the first time

Julian Keith

Two giant Bankwest Stadium external signs have lit up for the first time . . . the Bankwest sign is another significant milestone on the journey of the new home of sport and entertainment in Western Sydney.

The external signs, located on the eastern and northern facades of the Stadium, were installed this week and switched on by Bankwest’s Executive General Manager of Customer Experience Andrew Chanmugam ahead of the first night-time NRL game at the venue – Parramatta Eels v Penrith Panthers.

The external lighting of the signs will be complemented by Bankwest Stadium’s integrated lighting technology inside the venue, featuring 260 LED sports lights in the roof and 360-degree LED ribbon screens.

Bankwest was announced as naming rights partner for the Stadium in December 2018 after a seven-year partnership was sealed between the company and Venues NSW, the NSW Government agency that oversees Bankwest Stadium.

Mr Chanmugam said: “Fans attending the NRL game between Western Sydney arch-rivals the Parramatta Eels and Penrith Panthers tonight (23 May) will see the new external signs on Bankwest Stadium illuminated for the first time.

“Bankwest was thrilled to support this critical piece of community infrastructure in the vibrant, diverse and growing corridor of Western Sydney and seeing the Bankwest Stadium sign light up on the building for the first time will be a special moment.

“The Bankwest Stadium partnership sends a clear message to the people of Western Sydney that we’ll continue to invest in products and services that meet their needs.

“Our vision is to deliver amazing customer experiences that matter, which is strongly aligned to the vision of this stadium ‘to empower world-class fan experiences’.”

Bankwest Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry said the switching on of the external signs at the Stadium was another important step on the journey of bringing to life the venue that sets a new benchmark for the event experience in this country.

“Bankwest Stadium was opened to the public just a fortnight after construction was completed because we wanted to get the sporting codes, clubs and fans into the Stadium as soon as it was physically possible for us to do so,” Mr Kerry said.

“The Stadium and its precinct continue to evolve and tonight we see the new Bankwest Stadium external signage illuminated for the first time.

“This is a Stadium that has been built with the fan experience front of mind and the feedback from fans, clubs and codes has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Bankwest Stadium opened to the public with a Community Open Day on Sunday 14 April.

The Stadium has been hailed as a game-changer for sport in Western Sydney, with almost 100,000 fans and visitors already passing through the turnstiles for a series of sport, business and community events.

Hundreds of Western Sydney residents have also taken advantage of the community playground and outdoor exercise equipment on the eastern side of the Stadium, as well as the open green spaces of the Stadium precinct.
