In recent years, Paynters has also improved the facility by completing the Western and Eastern grandstands, Junior Rugby League Academy, ticket and merchandising facilities, food and beverage outlets, amenities, and main field works. The improved Dolphin Stadium now has more than 10,000 seats with an additional standing room of 1500, bringing the capacity to 11,500.
