Bankwest Stadium Injects Millions Back Into Parramatta's Economy

Parramatta’s economy gets a million dollar boost every time a major event is held at the new state-of-the-art Bankwest Stadium. Recent research commissioned by City of Parramatta found that Bankwest Stadium has had a large economic impact on Parramatta in a very short time.

The report ‘Bankwest Stadium – Bolstering the local economy’, is a snapshot of Parramatta’s future. In just six short months, Bankwest Stadium has cemented itself as Sydney’s new home of entertainment and sport. It’s the base of legendary sporting clubs, the Parramatta Eels and Western Sydney Wanderers. It will also host some of the world’s biggest entertainers, including Elton John. But it’s also attracted a new, ongoing wave of visitors to Parramatta – all of whom are spending money.

The report was put together by reputable agency Micromex Research. It surveyed more than 600 people who attended one of three weekend sporting matches at Bankwest in June and July this year. People were asked a range of questions, including how they got to Parramatta, what they thought of our City, and how they spent their money. Not only was their spend positive, but their experience of the City and the new Bankwest Stadium rated highly across all areas.
