The New Grandstand at Fairfield Showground is a three storey building with spectator seating for 1000, players’ change rooms, social rooms, amenities and five VIP boxes. Two bridges link the Grandstand to the existing, adjacent Parklands Function Centre Grandstand and both buildings will serve the newly constructed elite football field in the redeveloped Showground precinct.

Active and easily accessible, rooms and amenities are arranged strategically for efficient circulation and flexibility for the various user groups. The grandstand is designed for enhancing the match-day experience for not only the spectators and players, but to all those who make the event happen.

The form and scale of the building, with large overhanging roof, folded perforated metal façade, concrete base and timber soffit to VIP boxes are in sympathy with existing and new buildings (Stages 1 and 2 developments) and provide a high quality neutral finished backdrop to complement any potential sports team colours.
