"It is my understanding Allianz Stadium at Moore Park will be knocked over and rebuilt into a brand new 45,000 seat stadium and that work will begin at the end of next year, " journalist Chris O'Keeffe said.

Mr Greenberg said the NRL would now commit to keeping the Grand Final in Sydney for the next 25 years.

"Our fans will now have access to three world-class stadia where they can watch anything from Telstra Premiership games through to State of Origin and Grand Finals", he said.

Opposition leader Luke Foley partially backed the plan, saying ANZ stadium was in need of an upgrade but opposed the additional funding for the Allianz stadium, which he's branded a "white elephant".

In their place will be a new rectangular football stadium at the Moore Park site that will seat approximately 45,000 people, and a multi-purpose stadium at Homebush with a seating capacity expected to reach between 75,000 and 80,000 people.

A third stadium, Parramatta, which was the home ground of the football A-League's Western Sydney Wanderers, is now being redeveloped.

"Our preference has always been to get a stadium network in Sydney that delivers the very best entertainment experience", Greenberg said. This is a momentous day for the state of NSW, also for rugby league, players, clubs and most importantly rugby league fans.

Built in 1988, Allianz Stadium now holds a capacity of 45,000, with its updated version set to hold the same. Demolishing and rebuilding two perfectly good and underutilised stadiums to build flashy new bigger stadiums is like digging holes just to fill them up again.

Pushback from sporting organisations such as the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust, the Australian Rugby Union, and Sydney FC forced the Government to alter the proposal so that the ageing Sydney Football Stadium would be rebuilt first.

South Sydney will likely use Western Sydney Stadium and Allianz Stadium while Canterbury are expected to play out of Parramatta and Belmore Oval.
