Perth Stadium design

Perth Stadium will be a 60,000-seat (with the potential to increase to 70,000), multi-purpose venue capable of hosting AFL, rugby union and league, football (soccer), cricket and entertainment events.

With a ‘fans first’ approach to planning and design, the Stadium will offer an unrivalled spectator experience including exceptional event atmosphere and cutting edge stadium technology.

The Stadium will be integrated within a broader Stadium Park, providing opportunities for the development of cafes, alfresco dining, playgrounds, community spaces and other infrastructure that can be utilised on both on event and non-event days.

Construction is on schedule for Perth Stadium to open in time for the start of the 2018 AFL season.

  • The lightweight fabric used for the Stadium’s roof naturally ventilates the Stadium, reducing energy usage.
  • The roof is also designed to collect and store 250,000 litres of rainwater for reuse in toilets and landscape irrigation.
  • LED lighting will be used throughout the entire Stadium and surrounding Stadium Park to minimise energy usage.
  • The retention of existing vegetation plus the planting of water wise local flora will provide wind and shade protection.
  • The State Government’s public transport strategy will also reduce the impact on the environment with rail, bus and pedestrian solutions able to safely and efficiently transport 83% of a capacity crowd (60,000) within one hour of an event finishing.
  • The additional 600 bike racks and path network around Stadium Park will provide flexibility and encourage year round use of the Park.
