Stadium to bring in $291m

Perth Stadium could deliver more than $291 million and 1,300 jobs each year to the Western Australian economy, however it will need to start bidding for major events now and market the stadium’s potential ready for its 2018 opening.

The call for action came from the Tourism Council WA today at the launch of an analysis paper based on its commissioned economic impact assessment by consultants AEC Group.

With capacity of up to 70,000 seats for concerts and 60,000 for Australian Football League games, motorsport and athletics, the stadium surpasses all sporting and concert venues, including Patersons Stadium (43,500 for AFL), nib Stadium (25,000 for concerts) and the WACA Ground (24,500 for cricket).
