The $1.45 billion Perth Stadium and surrounding Stadium Park will officially open with a free Community Open Day on Sunday January 21, 2018.
The Community Open Day will run from the early afternoon into the evening, and enable ticket holders to tour the stadium, taste the food and beverage offerings, participate in a variety of activities, and experience the stadium’s state-of-the-art lighting, video and audio systems in action.
In the Stadium Park guests will be able to enjoy the various artworks, take part in activities on the Northern Oval, watch live WA bands, explore the nature playgrounds at Chevron Parkland, and enjoy other roaming entertainment events, food and music.
Tickets to the Community Open Day will be made available via the Perth Stadium website later this year. Western Australians will enjoy free entry and public transport to and from the event.
The WA Government’s State Budget includes a $425 million investment over five years for destination marketing and events tourism to assist in bringing more big events and visitors to Perth.
The financial commitment establishes a destination marketing baseline budget of $45 million per annum and a baseline budget of $40 million per annum for event tourism.
Perth Stadium will host two Ed Sheeran concerts and the Perth NRL double header in March 2018, Chelsea Football Club versus Perth Glory in mid-2018, and State of Origin II and a Bledisloe Cup match in 2019.
