New Perth stadium to be built on Burswood Peninsula

Australian Premier Colin Barnett has announced that Perth’s new multi-purpose stadium will be built on the Burswood Peninsula and is scheduled for completion in 2018. The new Perth Stadium will have the third-biggest capacity in Australia and will be the second-largest Australian Football League home stadium. Pictured left is an artist's impression of how the development could look.

It will have a capacity of 60,000 seats with provision for future expansion to 70,000 seats in the style of Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium, with similar views, amenities and comfort. The final cost of the project will be determined after the design process has been completed, however the current indicative cost for the stadium is approximately AUD$700 million, excluding costs associated with upgrades to transport infrastructure.

“Burswood Peninsula is unconstrained by surrounding development and government-owned, which will allow us to achieve the vision of a world-class stadium precinct,” said Barnett. “The new stadium will be the centrepiece of an emerging eastside precinct at the gateway to Perth and is within walking distance of a range of potential transport options including footbridges, ferries and trains.

“We want people going to the stadium for an event to catch public transport. The new Perth Stadium will deliver a high quality, state-of-the-art facility all West Australians can be proud of. To help us achieve this, there will be an international design competition to attract the best ideas. Together with the Perth Waterfront, the City Link, the Perth Cultural Centre, the Riverside Development, and the Perth Arena, a new stadium will enhance Perth’s reputation as a world-class city with a range of entertainment options.”
