Optus Stadium opened in December 2017 and replaces Subiaco Oval as Western Australia’s premier AFL venue and home of the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers. The world-class stadium was designed with the fan at the forefront and features a seating capacity of over 60,000 with 85% covered by the roof. The design acknowledges Western Australia’s unique sporting, cultural and Aboriginal heritage and the Stadium Park landscape provides a spectacular vista across the Swan River to the City.
