Sydney Cricket Ground Redevelopment

Sydney, New South Wales

COX was appointed as Lead Architect working in collaboration with Robertson + Marks, for the redevelopment of the Sydney Cricket Ground Northern Stand. The venue’s new Northern Stand replaces the stadium’s existing Noble, Bradman and Messenger stands.

The Northern Stand redevelopment is the first project of the master plan being developed by the Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust and the second stage of the SCG redevelopment.

The design reinforces and rejuvenates the time-honoured traditions and character of the world famous SCG. It complements its legacy and heritage, whilst at the same time showcasing the next evolution of stadia design in Australia, which is being defined by the changing shape of the game.

The new Stand accommodates 13,360 seats and delivers world class facilities for Members Corporate and public speciation, including all aspects of the experience from a grand entry through to improved seating areas and food and beverage.

It also improves on the current international cricket facilities provided, as well as new ground maintenance and change room facilities and incorporates a new state of the art media centre and the largest video scoreboard in the Southern hemisphere.
