Perth Stadium, also known by naming rights sponsorship as Optus Stadium, was awarded the title of the most beautiful sporting facility in the world at the 2019 UNESCO Prix Versailles architecture and design awards.
The distant cousin Melbourne, as a destination, continues to grow its global appeal by consistently securing international events. From the attendees of the Australian Open, down to the maintenance team of the Grand Prix, international visitors inject large sums of money into the state economy each year.
It is these kinds of global events that attract annual mass attendance that Perth needs, despite an impressive lineup of sports events such as the NRL State of Origin series, and Manchester United and Leeds United friendly match. As soon as the one-off events are done, it's back to the drawing board for our third largest stadium in Australia.
Installing custom stainless steel down pipes with 3D off sets was always going to be challenge at the Burswood based stadium which opened in 2018. The stadium has a capacity of over 60,000 people, coming in after the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Stadium Australia.
The field is 165 metres long and 130 metres wide, 5 metres longer than both the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. It is a multi-purpose facility able to hold not only sporting events such as AFL and major rugby league, rugby union, cricket and soccer games, but also major cultural events such as concerts. In other words, it is huge. This was surely going to bring up the question of supply capabilities from IBEX Australia.
