The transformation of Belmore continues with the Federal Government pledging $4 million to build the Sydney Multicultural Arts and Sports Precinct.
The project, at Belmore Sports Ground, comprises two new grandstands with capacity for 1700, performance and visual arts spaces and a walkway linking the facility to the station.
Watson Federal Labor MP Tony Burke announced the funding alongside Regional Development Minister Anthony Albanese on Friday.
Mr Burke said the "flagship facility" now had the capacity to attract international visitors and further boost the arts in the region.
"Our diverse area will have a home for art, performance and music," Mr Burke said.
"We'll now have a facility right in the heart of Belmore that will enable the sharing of all our different experiences to tell the story of our nation and our region."
Bulldogs chairman Ray Dib said the football club looked forward to seeing the development take shape.
"This latest round of funding is for people in the community," Mr Dib.
"Funding for the project has been made available through the Regional Development Australia Fund.
