The seating design of the new Sydney Football Stadium has been revealed.
Award-winning Indigenous artist Tony Albert was commissioned to create a design which covers all 42,500 seats of the new stadium. The theme of the design is “Two Worlds Colliding – Water and Land”, with abstract designs featuring topographical views of Sydney, and whale and goanna totems.
“I believe in the ability that art has to elevate our experience of daily life, and to create environments that uplift and connect us. It is my wish that in time, the Sydney Football Stadium will become a landmark destination within Sydney’s Cultural Precinct,” Albert said.
“I was really thinking about this idea of a football stadium and the concept Two Worlds Colliding is the idea of friendly competition, two different elements or people coming together."
