New Perth Stadium
The new Perth Stadium will form a permanent centrepiece for the redevelopment of the Burswood Peninsula on the Swan River. It will be one of the major sporting and entertainment venues for Perth and one of the major international sporting venues for Australia.
The stadium will have tiered seating and a total capacity of 60,000 seats. The standard of the stadium, including its functionality, services, finishes and fitout will be equivalent to world's best practice.
The new Perth Stadium will transform the Burswood Peninsula and create a spectacular gateway to our City. Together with other major development projects such as Elizabeth Quay and Perth City Link, the new stadium will enhance Perth's reputation as a world-class destination.
PART OF THE BIGGER PICTURE
A FIELD OF PLAY LONGER THAN THE MCG AND ETIHAD
The State Government has now approved the Transport Project Definition Plan (PDP), which sets out a solution to move 83% of a full capacity crowd at the new Perth Stadium an hour after an event.

Once complete, the new Perth Stadium will have the third-biggest capacity in Australia at 60,000 seats initially, bringing a new experience in sports viewing and entertainment to Perth and Western Australia
The stadium field of play will be 165m x 130m (5m longer than MCG and Etihad)
The stadium orientation will be east:west (same as Patersons Stadium and the MCG)
Three companies have now been shortlisted for the pre-construction site works contract; Ertech Keller Joint Venture, John Holland Pty Ltd and Menard Bachy Pty Ltd.
The first stage of the pre-construction site works includes earthworks to shape the stadium site and the surrounding sports precinct, and ground treatment works that will prepare the playing field, the adjacent plaza and access roads ahead of the main stadium construction works. The second stage will focus on preparing the site for the transport infrastructure.
It is anticipated that a contract for the pre-construction site works will be awarded in the first quarter of 2013, with works expected to start in the second quarter of 2013.
STADIUM AND SPORTS PRECINCT WORKS
The procurement process required for the delivery of the stadium, plaza and sports precinct works will be progressed while the pre-construction site works are underway. The Expression of Interest (EOI) has been advertised for the new Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct. This Design-Build-Finance-Maintain EOI represents an important milestone in the new Perth Stadium project, as we seek to engage a consortium that shares our vision for the new Perth Stadium.
