The new northern grandstand will feature 13,300 new seats, increasing the total capacity of the SCG to 48,000. The redevelopment has also allowed the lengthening of the SCG playing surface by six metres, meaning it will be just five metres shorter and five metres narrower than the MCG.
Upon completion, the SCG redevelopment will see the new stands deliver first class catering, bars, dining and media facilities, as well as a roof top terrace behind the level four seating deck, which will provide spectacular views of the Sydney CBD skyline.
New change rooms for visiting AFL teams will also be built ahead of the 2014 season. The redevelopment of the northern grandstands will also feature the installation of a 272-square-metre video screen, the Dally Messenger Scoreboard, the largest in any Australian stadium.
