Record crowds to test Domain stadium

Fremantle Dockers and West Coast Eagles fans will be heavily invested in the onfield action at the two preliminary finals in Perth tonight and tomorrow, but the operator of the ageing Domain stadium is counting on an even bigger bet coming off.

Perth Stadium Management is about to discover whether a delicate balancing act, between spending enough capital to improve fan experiences at the stadium and justifying additional costs for an ageing precinct due to lose AFL games in 2018, has been successful.

Perth Stadium Management general manager Gavin Taylor told Business News he was confident a strategic decision made two years ago to update select aspects of the 43,500-seat stadium, which was built in 1908 as Mueller Park, would prove to be the right one, even during times of extreme demand.
