Fans and politicians are outraged after the New South Wales government approved a staggering $2.5 billion demolition and rebuild plan for two major Sydney stadiums.
The overhaul, which will involve the ANZ Stadium at Sydney Olympic Park being substantially demolished and rebuilt from 2019, was signed off by the cabinet on Thursday.
That will follow a similar rebuilding of Moore Park’s Allianz Stadium in 2018.
Fans took to social media to express their outrage at the projected funding allotment, saying the money could have been better spent.
‘Demolishing & rebuilding ANZ Stadium & Allianz Stadium will cost taxpayers $2 billion. How much is that in Hospital & Schools in the old money?” one person asked.
