Western United new stadium planning permission approved

Saturday 23rd January 2021

Western United have had planning permission for a new stadium approved.

The Australian A League side are hoping to build a new 15,000 seater stadium in the Melbourne suburb of Tarneit, to the west of the city.

The stadium will form the centrepiece of a wider development which includes sport, commercial and residential use. It would become the first stadium in Australia to be owned by a professional football team.

The stadium is expected to cost around £85m and it is hoped that construction will start in 2021, with the stadium ready for the 2023 Women's World Cup.
