The state government is progressing the development of a $32.5 million football centre at Queens Park, having awarded its build to local business Broad Construction.

The centre is intended as the home of soccer in Western Australia, with its training facilities to be made available to participants at all levels of the sport, including teams playing in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. It will also be the new home of the sport’s governing body in WA, Football West.

A $31.2 million contract was awarded to Perth-based Broad Construction from the Department of Finance (on behalf of the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries) last month, with work on the centre due to finish before February 2023.

The federal and state governments will each contribute $16.25 million towards the build.

Separately, the state government is carrying out $35 million worth of upgrades at HBF Park in East Perth, which will continue to host A-League and international matches. Five group-stage matches in the 2023 Women's World Cup will also be played at the venue.

The 64-match tournament will run from July 20 to August 6, with Perth one of nine host cities in Australia and New Zealand.
