In addition to the new eastern stand and plaza entry, the upgrade of the stadium will include a new centre-west stand, upgraded match day facilities, sport lighting upgrades and replacing the LED ribbon board. The redevelopment will also include new corporate and hospitality facilities, food and beverage outlets, and patron amenities on the eastern and western side of the stadium, along with improved facilities for users.

Construction on the project is set to begin in late 2024 and is to be jointly funded by the Federal Government and the Tasmanian Government. CEO of Stadiums Tasmania, James Avery, saying he was “excited” to see a “critical” piece of infrastructure receive support from all levels of government.

“We know what powerful economic multipliers stadiums are, from the building phase to gameday revenue, they provide significant benefits to the entire local community,” he said. “By investing in this infrastructure now we are locking into place a bright future for sport and entertainment in northern Tasmania.”

According to Infrastructure Tasmania, the scope of the works has been developed with key stakeholders to identify and priorities works that will “enhance” the venue.

The UTAS stadium redevelopment project is set to be completed in 2027.
