Given current circumstances the Sydney Swans have had to press pause on plans for a new headquarters and community centre.

The financial impacts of COVID-19 mean the club is unable to continue with plans to build a new home at Moore Park’s iconic Royal Hall of Industries building.

The $70 million project would have established the Sydney Swans HQ and Community Centre – a new home for the Sydney Swans and a future Swans women’s team, the QBE Sydney Swans Academy, the NSW Swifts, GO Foundation, Clontarf Foundation and an Australian Red Cross Blood Bank donation centre.

Working with the NSW Government and Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust, the club has exited the lease agreement for now but is committed to reigniting the project post the pandemic.

The Sydney Swans would like to thank the NSW and Federal Governments, the AFL, and everyone who has been involved in the project for their hard work and support.

We look forward to realising our aspiration to build the Sydney Swans HQ and Community Centre in the future.
