Campbelltown MP Greg Warren said the NSW Government’s decision to snub
Campbelltown Sports Stadium from its suburban stadium strategy was utterly
The NSW Liberals recently revealed the list of suburban stadiums earmarked for
upgrades – however, Campbelltown Sports Stadium was not featured.
Instead, stadiums in Liberal electorates such as Penrith and Brookvale were chosen
while Kogarah was also named.
Mr Warren said NSW Labor built the Campbelltown Sports Stadium and had regularly
funded upgrades of the venue.
Yet, the NSW Liberals had refused to do likewise.
He urged the government to reconsider its strategy and to provide funding for
Campbelltown Sports Stadium upgrades.
“It is a baffling and bizarre decision to snub Campbelltown Sports Stadium,” Mr Warren
“The Macarthur region is the fastest growing region in the state, yet it is continually
overlooked by this government.
“NSW Labor has a proud history regarding Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
“We built it and have continually invested in it – but the NSW Liberals have refused to
“There is a strong case for an upgraded Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
“There is a train station right on the door step of the stadium and the M5 Motorway is
just a stone’s throw away too.
“The A-League’s newest side, Macarthur Bulls FC and NRL side, the Wests Tigers also
call the venue home.
“The Macarthur region is the fastest growing region in the state and we deserve a sports
stadium that reflects that.
“We have the population, the transport links, the backing from professional clubs and
the desire – yet the government still refuses to invest any funds into Campbelltown
“This government isn’t even attempting to hide its contempt of our community.”
