The ‘Unite Round’ is being introduced for the 2023-24 and 2024-25 seasons, as the APL’s partnership with DNSW enters its second year. As part of the updated partnership, the hosting rights for the Grand Finals will revert to the traditional format with hosting rights awarded to the highest placed qualifier from the Semi Finals, starting from season 2023-24.

During ‘Unite Round’, the double header matches will be hosted at Allianz Stadium, CommBank Stadium and Leichhardt Oval, and grassroots tournaments for junior boys and girls will take place at venues across Sydney.

A live site at Moore Park will also feature a fan park and viewing party for the AFC Asian Cup match in Qatar between Australia and India’s men’s teams on Saturday 13 January at 10:30pm AEDT.

The Hon Stephen Conroy, Chair of APL, said:

“We saw record crowds in the men’s and women’s finals series last season, and we again saw the appetite for professional football in NSW during the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Having all of our teams play in one place, over one weekend, is a fantastic way to serve up the best of the A-Leagues for our fans.

“We are one of the only leagues in the world where almost every club has both men’s and women’s teams, so we are uniquely positioned to create an event like this.

“We thank Premier Minns and the NSW Government for this fundamentally important partnership and for their continuing support for the development of football in Australia.”

Danny Townsend, CEO of APL said:

“The Unite Round is a brand new experience which brings together all A-Leagues clubs, fans and grassroots players together for the very first time in Sydney in an unprecedented celebration of football. With the women’s domestic attendance record already broken twice on the first day of this season, we are looking forward to welcoming A-Leagues fans, old and new, to experience our leagues.”

“We have worked closely with our clubs and fans to ensure that there are suitable constructive mechanisms for the voices of fans to be heard. Many of the resulting conversations have included the hosting of the Grand Finals, and the strong sentiments around that, and we thank DNSW and Premier Minns for their partnership in creating a truly inclusive experience for our game.”

Premier Chris Minns said:

“Unite Round is great news for the football community, and for NSW.

“This will bring fans and players from around the country together in Sydney.

“I encourage fans to get involved in this festival of football.

Minister for Jobs and Tourism John Graham said:

“This is a chance for fans and players from right around Australia to come together, be united and be part of something special right here in Sydney.

“The Unite Round is a win-win for fans, the game and NSW as it will provide more opportunity for all players and fans to be part of an inclusive football celebration in Sydney.

“Unite Round will also deliver strong economic and community benefits for the people of NSW – it is estimated Unite Round will attract more than 42,000 people to Sydney for the event and generate more than $10.2 million in visitor expenditure for the state’s economy.

Minister for Sport Steve Kamper said:

“Sydney has more football fans and players than any other state and our culture of celebrating major sporting milestones is second-to-none.

“We can’t wait to welcome Australia’s football family to Sydney for the debut A-Leagues Unite Round next January and to see this tradition grow.

“This will be the first sporting code to celebrate a full men’s and women’s round in a single city in Australia.”

For the Isuzu UTE A-League Men, ‘Unite Round’ will be an additional round – making it a 27-game regular season. The existing Round 12 fixtures are being moved to new dates and times. For the
Liberty A-League Women, ‘Unite Round’ will use the existing Round 12 fixtures, keeping the season as a 22-game regular season.

This A-Leagues event is supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

Tickets for A-Leagues ‘Unite Round’ will go on sale from Monday 6 November.

Bankwest Stadium kicks goals for Western Sydney economy

Sydney Business Chamber: Bankwest Stadium kicks goals for Western Sydney economy

The new Bankwest Stadium will turbocharge the Parramatta CBD and inject millions of dollars into the Western Sydney economy, according to analysis by the Western Sydney Business Chamber.

The analysis found that visiting sports fans and major event goers to the new stadium would spend more than $176 million in the next two years.

David Borger, Executive Director of the Western Sydney Business Chamber said, “The opening of the new Bankwest Stadium will see a surge of new visitations to Parramatta that we have never seen before.

This is now one the best stadiums in the country with a spectator experience unparalleled.

“The flow-on benefits from the stadium will be immense. Parramatta’s night-time economy will be supercharged.

“Parramatta will expect to see a wave of tourists – coming to watch sports games and concerts at Bankwest Stadium.

“Patrons making their way to and from the stadium will be stopping at one of the many cafes and restaurants nearby – boosting the vibrancy of Parramatta Eat Street. We will also see out-of-towners booking accommodation at local hotels,” Mr Borger said.

Bankwest Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry said Bankwest Stadium was designed for the fans with the event experience front of mind.

“Bankwest Stadium will provide a fantastic new stage for rugby league, football and rugby union with fans closer to the action than ever before. It will also host a range of community events and activities, business meetings, shows and concerts.

“More than 30 sport and entertainment events are already confirmed, with more to be announced. We will host hundreds of additional meetings and special events, and anticipate more than 600,000 people will walk through the gates of Bankwest Stadium in its first nine months of operation,” Mr Kerry said.

Bankwest Managing Director Rowan Munchenberg said Bankwest was thrilled to support this critical piece of community infrastructure in the vibrant, diverse and growing corridor of Western Sydney.

“The Bankwest Stadium partnership will send a clear message to the people of Western Sydney and, more broadly NSW, that we’ll continue to invest in products and services that meet their needs,” Mr Munchenberg said.

NRL Chief Executive Todd Greenberg said Bankwest Stadium would be a game-changerfor Sydney.

“Clearly, there are huge benefits for rugby league as a whole.

Parramatta, Wests Tigers and the Bulldogs will all use the new stadium this year and the Downer Rugby league World Cup 9s Sydney 2019 will be another event to showcase our sport in the new venue.

“Given the number of matches and events on show, the economic benefits will be significant not only for Western Sydney but for Sydney and NSW in general.

“This will show us not only what we have been missing when it comes to state-of-the-art stadia, but how the state can benefit economically from them,” Mr Greenberg said.

Parramatta Eels Club CEO Bernie Gurr said, “We are thrilled to be the anchor tenant and to showcase the benefits Bankwest Stadium will have on Parramatta’s economy when we play our first game at the stadium on April 22.

“With the refurbished Parramatta Leagues Club located adjacent to the Stadium, we look forward to putting on a spectacular game day experience for our Members and fans,” Mr Gurr said.

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said, “The Wanderers arrival in Parramatta coincided with an economic boom that will positively impact Western Sydney for many years to come.

The infrastructure and development exemplified by Bankwest Stadium will continue to drive this thriving economy and platform for social engagement,” Mr Tsatsimas said.

Rugby Australia Chief Executive Raelene Castle said Bankwest Stadium would finally give Sydney a genuine world-class rectangular venue.

“We are looking forward to seeing the Qantas Wallabies take on Samoa in the first Rugby Test match at the venue on September 7.

“Rugby fans will have the opportunity to experience a stadium that is purpose-built for our game and is designed to create an atmosphere that will ensure the Wallabies get a fitting send-off before they embark on their Rugby World Cup campaign in Japan,” Ms Castle said.

Venues NSW CEO Paul Doorn said, “Bankwest Stadium is truly `The People’s Stadium’ – a stadium for everyone. Whether for sport, entertainment, business, community or cultural events, Bankwest Stadium is a unique facility that every person in NSW can access and enjoy.

“This stadium will quickly become part of the fabric of booming Western Sydney and a centre of celebration in our community,” Mr Doorn said.

The showpiece international will be the first football game played at the new Bankwest Stadium with Wanderers fans set to experience the revolutionary atmosphere for the first time.

Leeds United currently sit second in England’s Sky Bet Championship and are well on track for a shot at promotion to the English Premier League.

As many as 7000 Leeds United fans are expected at the game, a testament to their strong Australian following.

But it’ll be a home crowd come 20 July with Wanderers fans eagerly snapping up tickets to the first game at their new home.

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas says the club can’t wait to be part of the first football game at Bankwest Stadium.

“We are very excited about our return to Bankwest Stadium and there is no better way to open the stadium for football than with a match against storied English football club Leeds United,” said Mr Tsatsimas.

“Bankwest Stadium is a world-class venue and we are looking forward to giving our members and fans an experience to remember against Leeds.”

Leeds United captain Liam Cooper says the players are excited to make the trip Down Under and see their Australian fans.

“We have a lot to focus on in England for the next five weeks, but as soon as our season ends, we will be able to start looking forward to our trip to Australia and being involved in the first football game to be played at the Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta,” said Cooper.

“It’s an occasion which we all feel very honoured to be involved in. We also plan on spending time in Parramatta and learning more about the local area and its culture as well as meeting the locals and all those who have travelled over from Leeds.”

Bankwest Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry has called on all football fans to come and be part of this historic event.

“There’s been a really strong response to this event and we’re excited to showcase football at Bankwest Stadium for the first time,” said Mr Kerry.

“This is a great chance for football fans to come and experience this amazing new venue.”

The Wanderers are set to play all 13 home matches at Bankwest Stadium from the Hyundai A-League 2019/2020 season.

The Wanderers’ W-League team will also play matches at Bankwest Stadium from next season.

The game will mark a historic day for football in Australia with the activation of the country’s first safe-standing terrace in the Red & Black Active area in the northern end of Bankwest Stadium.
