Marc Swan, the Venue Manager of WIN Stadium, presented on the back story to the Elton John concert, the biggest night in Wollongong’s entertainment history.
Marc proved he & his staff could handle the only Elton John concert in NSW with a completely full & reconfigured venue with an attendance of 22,244.
Marc commented that with an 18 month lead time & support from the Media, council, transport & his team they pulled off a major coup. We were all impressed.
Interestingly 50% of concert goers came from outside the Illawarra which created an economic benefit over & above the ticket prices which were between $99 & $300.
Marc also said the occasion has formed some great relationships & augurs well for future events.
Just in case you didn’t notice we have a kosher English premier league match ( not just a friendly but an actual match) between Wigan & Hull in 2018 as well as as 5 matches with the Dragons.
We are very proud of your achievements Marc Swan & it was lovely to have your family come to listen as well.
