  • 15 additional free drinking water filling stations to be installed at Optus Stadium
  • New facilities follow feedback from fans requesting more access to free drinking water
  • Works will also include upgrades to stadium’s existing drinking water facilities

15 new drinking water filling stations will be installed at Optus Stadium in response to fan feedback calling for more access to free drinking water at the venue.

“Queues for drinking fountains at Optus Stadium do get a little bit long during events. That makes the experience a little harder for people, especially those with children, to enjoy a comfortable day out.” Minister for Sport and Recreation Mick Murray said.

“With summer almost upon us, and with that the venue’s first full summer of cricket, it’s time to fix that oversight to ensure an even better experience for fans.”

State venue manager VenuesWest is working with Optus Stadium operator VenuesLive to install the new facilities in time for the new year.

Move follows feedback from fans reporting long queues for drinking fountains at events.

As part of the new works, VenuesWest will also take the opportunity to retrofit the venue’s existing drinking facilities with new fixtures which will elevate the stadium’s water quality above the Australian standard levels it already meets.

Stadium Parkland’s external water facilities will also be upgraded as part of the works program.

VenuesWest has elected to carry out these extra upgrades over and above regulatory requirements.
