Blacktown International Sportspark (formally known as Blacktown Olympic Park) is a multi-sports venue located in Rooty Hill, a suburb in Sydney, Australia. The venue includes two cricket grounds, which also has been used for Australian rules football, an athletics track and field, three baseball diamonds, two soccer fields, four softball diamonds, administration centers and park land.

It was constructed for the 2000 Sydney Olympics to host softball and baseball events.[1] The facilities have been used as a training and administrative base for the Greater Western Sydney Football Club from 2010 to 2012, and for the Western Sydney Wanderers FC since 2012.

In Round 3 of the 2012 AFL season, the ground played host to its only premiership match when the West Coast Eagles defeated the Greater Western Sydney Giants by 81 points.[2]

Blacktown Stadium proposal

As part of Australia's unsuccessful 2018-2022 FIFA World Cup bid, the athletics track at the western end of the park was proposed to be developed into a soccer stadium named Blacktown Stadium. The stadium would have had 41,000-seat, a figure which would be downgraded to 26,000 post-tournament.[3]
