OPTUS Stadium has been shortlisted for a third category in the international TheStadiumBusiness Awards.

The Project of the Year category recognises a completed new build – or renovation – that has more than delivered on all its goals.

Competition for the award includes Kuala Lumpur Sports City in Malaysia, Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Louis Armstrong Arena in New York, Audi Field in Washington DC and SunTrust Park in Atlanta.

VenuesWest acting chief executive Janis Carren said Optus Stadium being shortlisted would promote Perth as a destination for international visitors and possibly help to secure more events.

Optus Stadium was previously shortlisted for Venue of the Year and a Fan Experience Award as part of TheStadiumBusiness Awards, which will be presented in London next month.
