One of New South Wales’s largest cities, Wollongong, will host the Australian Supercross Championship, with round two of the 2024 series announced today to take place at WIN Stadium on Saturday 2nd November.

The event returns to the vibrant and progressive city of Wollongong for the first time in five years, with the iconic stadium that overlooks the pacific ocean, to be transformed into a dirt wonderland where the best domestic and international supercross stars will do battle.

Championship Director, Kelly Bailey is delighted to be working with Destination New South Wales and Venues New South Wales again, as well as the Wollongong City Council to take the event to another key NSW location.

“We’ve always had strong support in New South Wales, notably with 40,000 fans attending our last two events in Newcastle,” said Bailey.

“We anticipate Wollongong also delivering a significant level of support given the large moto community within the Illawarra and surrounding regions, which should translate into a strong showing at the event, and even bigger atmosphere.

“WIN stadium is perfect for supercross, with three grandstands and the eastern hill with grass seating, it provides ample viewing options of the show and track. Equally location wise, being close to public transport, and walking distance to the beach as well as hotels, shops, restaurants in the CBD ensures travelling fans can make a truly memorable weekend of it.”

Destination Wollongong’s General Manager, Mark Sleigh is excited to welcome the championship back to Wollongong.

“Wollongong is thrilled to welcome back the Australian Supercross Championship, a significant event in the motor-sports calendar,” he said.

“Watching the nation’s best riders, and some international superstars, battling it out in our iconic WIN Stadium by the sea. Why not stay a little longer and enjoy our beautiful region, with the great outdoors, captivating city, world-class beaches and iconic attractions.”

The New South Wales based round will again uniquely run the Triple Crown format, with championship points on offer for each of the three main event races. This format provides fans triple the stakes, energy, and excitement throughout the night, and opens the door for unexpected outcomes, crashes or comebacks.

WIN Stadium in Wollongong is the second stop for the championship, with Queensland set to host the opening round at Kayo Stadium in Redcliffe on Saturday 12th October 2024.
