NSW Government secures another knockout sporting event for Western Sydney

The NSW Government has continued its winning streak, securing another high-profile sporting event for Western Sydney.

29 October 2020

Headlining the inaugural Sydney SuperFight event at Bankwest Stadium on 16 December will be a Trans-Tasman bout between up and coming Australian star Tim Tszyu and New Zealand’s Bowyn Morgan.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres welcomed the COVID-safe event, estimated to deliver over $1 million to the visitor economy, as another major win for Western Sydney and NSW.

“Sydney SuperFight joins an impressive list of major sporting events that have been secured for our state through the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

“With Sydneysider Tim Tszyu, son of Australian boxing legend Kostya Tszyu, in the ring against the Kiwi champion, this will be a contest that boxing fans won’t want to miss, and I have no doubt Sydney SuperFight will be a sellout.

Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the recent easing of restrictions made this even better news for fans.

“We can now have up to 15,000 spectators taking in the blockbuster program at Bankwest Stadium in a COVID-safe way,” Mr Lee said.

“Major events like Sydney SuperFight are key to the recovery of our state and we look forward to welcoming the contestants, officials, support staff and their fans to Western Sydney for another big night on the NSW sporting calendar.”

The Sydney SuperFight program is packed with entertainment including a number of undercard bouts such as the highly anticipated clash between former NRL star Paul Gallen and former UFC star Mark Hunt.

Tickets for the Sydney SuperFight go on sale at 10am on Monday, November 2 via Ticketek.
