The first sod on the new $300 million Western Sydney Stadium was turned on the weekend, with NSW Minister for Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres, State Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Western Sydney Wanderers captain Robert Cornthwaite and Parramatta Eels captain Tim Mannah on site to share the ceremonial shovel.

Mr Ayres said the 30,000 seat stadium will be a “game changer” for sport in Western Sydney.

"We will provide the best sporting experience for fans anywhere in the country, right here in the heart of western Sydney," Mr Ayres said on Sunday.

Lendlease was appointed by the state government in December 2016 to deliver the project under a design and construct contract.

It is working in partnership with architects Populous and engineering consultants Aurecon on the stadium itself and surrounding public realm improvements.

In addition to spaces for fans and players, the stadium will feature five levels of premium, corporate and function spaces with big screens and technology including WiFi and broadcast facilities.

It is expected it will be used for a range of sports including rugby league, AFL, soccer and rugby union as well as events including concerts, markets and fairs.

Mr Cornthwaite said the stadium could attract international football matches.

"As Wanderers we've got some of the most passionate fans in the country and to be able to play at this stadium, a unique football stadium, is going to create such a wonderful atmosphere," he said.

"Hopefully in the near future we can see the Socceroos and the Matildas bring a game again out west."
