Perth Stadium becomes Optus Stadium

Perth Stadium becomes Optus Stadium

PERTH Stadium is no more.

Sports and entertainment punters will now be stepping into Optus Stadium after the telco won a 10-year naming rights deal.

The deal is reportedly worth more than $50 million.

Optus will provide phone and internet services throughout the $10.4 billion State Government-funded venue.

Perth Stadium chief executive Mike McKenna emphasised it was a “technologically-focused venue”, making Optus a good fit.

“A key focus will be the development and delivery of the Stadium App, providing fans with the latest information on all aspects of the stadium including how to access and circulate the new venue,” he said.

Stadium management claim the venue boasts the biggest LED lighting system in the world as well as two of the largest super screens in the southern hemisphere.

An Optus Stadium sign will be hung on the venue in time for the free open day on January 21.

The Australia-England one-day international on January 28 will be the first sporting event at the stadium.

The Fremantle Dockers will play Collingwood in Round 2 of the AFLW on Saturday 10 February as the first football match.
