Netstrata Jubilee Stadium Naming Rights Expression of Interest process following Extraordinary Meeting of 11 February 2019

12/02/2019

Following Georges River Council’s Extraordinary Meeting last night (11 February 2019), in relation to the Netstrata Jubilee Stadium Naming Rights Expression of Interest (EOI) process complaint by Mr Norman Sarraf, Council resolved to:

(a) Receive and note the confidential legal advice.
(b) Advise Mr Sarraf that Council denies his claims about the EOI process.
(c) Notify all relevant external parties, including government agencies and the media, that Council’s EOI process complied with all applicable legislation.
(d) Immediately request ICAC, the Office of Local Government and the NSW Ombudsman to commence an investigation into the apparent unlawful disclosure of confidential information.

The contract with Netstrata remains unchanged and in place. Council is proud of this commercial arrangement with a well-known respected local business.

Council strongly refutes any claim that Mr Norman Sarraf, Sarraf Strata and/or Camp Quality were excluded from the EOI process. Despite being fully aware of the relevant EOI requirements, Mr Sarraf chose not to participate in the EOI for naming rights.

Through the public EOI process, Council is satisfied that it obtained the best commercial outcome for the community in the current market.

This is an exciting time for Netstrata Jubilee Stadium as its profile continues to increase, becoming a sought-after venue for professional football clubs and elite training.

It is set to be an action-packed year of sport at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium which will host several games for the Asian Champions League and the Cup of Nations, as well as several St George Illawarra Dragons’ fixtures.
The next event at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium is on this Saturday, with the grand final of the W-League.
