Thomson Geer advises Sydney Roosters on landmark partnership with the SCG

11 April 2019


THE Sydney Cricket and Sports Grounds and Sydney Roosters have signed a landmark partnership that will see the reigning NRL premiers play home games and finals at the Allianz Sydney Football Stadium for at least the next 25 years when it opens in 2022.

It is the longest hiring agreement between a stadium and club in rugby league history. The Roosters’ NRL and NRLW teams will be integral to the SCG precinct’s next chapter.

The NSW Government’s redevelopment is under way. The new venue will deliver a world-class sporting experience for fans, teams and players in Australia’s premier city.

Chairman of the Sydney Roosters, Nick Politis, said “Our whole club is excited about what the new stadium will deliver for our members, supporters and players and for rugby league across the board. It cannot happen soon enough.”

Thomson Geer Partner, Brett Boon and Senior Associate, Arj Puveendran advised Easts Group’s Sydney Roosters on the deal.
