Roosters sign 25-year Allianz Stadium deal

The Sydney Roosters have signed a 25-year agreement to play out of the new $730 million Allianz Staidum after the project's future was assured following Saturday's NSW election.

The Roosters on Monday signed a long-term deal to make the new 40,000-seat stadium home when it opens in 2022.

The facility is in the process of being knocked down and rebuilt however Labor had threatened to scrap the project if they were elected in NSW.

However it will proceed after the Gladys Berejiklian government were returned, ensuring it will go ahead as part of Coalition's $1.6 billion stadia program.

The Roosters will play out of the SCG next door for the next three seasons while Allianz Stadium is rebuilt and have ensured they will be at Moore Park until 2046.

"These grounds have always been our spiritual home and the binding agreement we've signed with the SCG (Trust) means this will always be our home," Roosters chairman Nick Politis said.

"We played our first matches here at the old Show Ground, moved to the Sports Ground and then Allianz Stadium.

"We've had some of our most famous moments on the SCG, including the 1974-75 premierships that marked the start of my involvement with the Roosters.

"Our whole club is excited about what the new stadium will deliver for our members, supporters and players and for rugby league across the board.

"It cannot happen soon enough."
