According to Arup, the Precinct will include “an indoor aquatic center with two Olympic size pools and a diving pool, a multipurpose sports pavilion housing an indoor athletics track and tennis academy, plus external training fields.” The stadium will be flexible – big enough to accommodate up to 40,000 spectators and, by removing the top tier of seating, the capacity can be reduced to 25,000 in legacy mode.
