Sporting codes welcome prospect of $300m roof at Accor Stadium

ARL Commission chairman Peter V’landys said he had seen first hand the benefits of a stadium roof at the NRL season-opener at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas last month. “Before I went to Allegiant Stadium, I couldn’t see the benefits of having a roof,” V’landys said. “But in Vegas, when heavy winds had shut the airport and roofs were being blown off houses, you wouldn’t have known inside the stadium. The roof also keeps the atmosphere within the stadium. I wasn’t a fan, but I am now.” The venue’s major tenants – including NRL clubs the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Canterbury Bulldogs, Football Federation Australia and Rugby Australia – were asked for their feedback as part of the study. Wests Tigers chief executive Shane Richardson, who spent more than a decade as the boss at South Sydney, said he had long been pushing for the stadium to have a roof.
