SYDNEY - Sydney's two main rectangular stadiums, the Olympic Stadium and Sydney Football Stadium, are to be demolished and rebuilt at a cost of around $AU2 billion ($F3.19b), the New South Wales government announced on Friday.

The 80,000-seater Olympic Stadium was built as the main venue for the 2000 Summer Games in the populous west of the city, while the 44,000-capacity SFS was constructed in 1988 in the wealthier east.

The Olympic Stadium will be replaced by a 75,000-seater structure, possibly with a roof, at a cost of $AU1.5b ($F2.39b) starting in 2019, with the construction of the new SFS getting underway next year.
