When the world came to Blacktown!
15 September 2020 marks 20 years since Blacktown hosted the world at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Blacktown International Sportspark Sydney, formerly Blacktown Olympic Park, was the training and playing venue for the Baseball and Softball competitions and the training venue for athletics before and during the Olympic Games. After 17 days of world-class competition, the world had witnessed the ‘best games ever’ and Blacktown was and remains proud to be part of that achievement.
To celebrate we're taking part in the #MySydney2000 campaign!
It's social media campaign launched by the Australian Olympic Committee to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games: 15 September – 1 October, and 18 – 29 October 2020.
#MySydney2000 is about people. It’s about people in Australia and overseas, sharing their personal memory of Sydney 2000. So it's time to start digging for your throwback photos and posting them on social media!
We would love to see your memories of Baseball and Softball games here at the Sportspark, and feature them on our website and social media. Don't forget to #BlacktownOlympicPark2000 or #BlacktownInternationalSportspark also! Or tag us on Facebook!
