Some local residents may remember the proposed Oasis Stadium project, which was a $900 million sports complex that was on the cards for Liverpool about 10 years ago. Well while the Oasis never got the go ahead, a new stadium project could be on the cards.
According to the Liverpool Champion
, the Liverpool City Council recently made a request for improved sporting facilities for Liverpool, which include the building of a stadium.
Apparently the state government is currently undertaking an audit of all sporting stadiums in Sydney, and with the population in Liverpool and south-west Sydney growing, there is also a growing need for improved sporting facilities here.
Stadiums already exist in Blacktown, Parramatta, Campbelltown and Penrith, and so it would be great if there was a local stadium to attend for sporting events.
If a new stadium were to be built there’s a possibility that Woodward Park could be used as the location, as that was the proposed site for the Oasis project.
There is certainly nothing set in stone yet though, and the Liverpool Council will have to make a strong push to get a stadium built in the area, but it could be something we see taking shape in the next couple of years.
What do local residents think about having a stadium built in Liverpool – do you want one in the local area?
