Fremantle and West Coast Eagles agree Perth Stadium deal

Fremantle and West Coast Eagles agree Perth Stadium deal
June 6, 2017

AFL teams the Fremantle Dockers and the West Coast Eagles have agreed to play their home matches at the new Perth Stadium for up to 50 years.

According to the PerthNow.com website, the deals have been agreed in principle and although the terms of the agreements have not been revealed, they are believed to relate to commercial aspects such as rent and hiring fees.

The deals are also said to include a clause that would allocate the home team 50,000 seats, with the remaining 10,000 being split between visiting sides and the general public.

Perth Stadium Chief Executive Mike McKenna said the deal had been in the offing for some time and an official agreement is not far off.

He told media “to be fair, it has been progressing steadily for a few months but we have got to a point now where there is virtually nothing left (to negotiate) on a commercial sense.

“Now that we have got to this stage it needs to be reviewed by the State and get feedback. But, yes, we are happy with this.”

However, in order for AFL teams to play at the venue, the West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) and Western Australian Government need to agree on an annual $10 million to fund grassroots AFL.

As managers of Perth’s Domain Stadium, the WAFC currently use revenues from that venue to fund the game.
