Claiming on the news tonight that the one day match Australia vs England one day international on Jan 28th WILL BE the FIRST major crowd feature and fixture at the new Perth Stadium...Judging by the way they are going I would say its odds on.. Very close to hand over in a few months.. They will get a fair chunk of TV international coverage of an event like this which is what is spurring them on...

No pedestrian bridge so I assume the 1 day match will be at reduced capacity?

I doubt it. It's a Sunday so should be fine.

The only reason they are reducing the capacity for the Ed Sheeran concert is due to it being on a Friday night. They don't think the rail system will be able to support the punters on top of the people on their nightly commute home.

Can't see it being the biggest challenge ever faced getting to the stadium without a bridge that has never existed. Like people aren't already used to overflowing train carriages, buses and freeway carparks? The walking might push it over the edge for many.

Even a reduced capacity Perth Stadium would still offer a bigger capacity than the WACA.

Yes, but with the dying popularity of one day cricket, is that capacity going to be needed? I suspect it will get a good crowd because it's the new stadium. Much like the Western Force's first ever game filled Subiaco.

Great to see Perth still in the name if true.

To be honest [insert company name] should ask for a discount if Perth stays in the name, not getting the full bang for their buck. Looks like it's just Perth Stadium with a sponsors logo tacked on. Not that i want any naming rights sold.

If the RAC are going to sponsor it, why not call it the Raca?

I reckon RAC would be more chance of doing a naming rights deal with Perth Arena. They have HQ close to it and already have a bit of a link already.

The State Government could set up a company, register it under the name 'Perth' with a basic white font all capital letters logo. Keep start up and running costs to a minimum, break even by about October. Let it flourish and grow with huge bottom line profit through until December then sell it off at a massive profit. Sell the naming rights to 'Perth' at a crazy fee as they are a new company and need to get their name out there despite the outrageous growth and success experienced early on.

'Perth Stadium'. You're welcome.

Premiers get paid a lot right? Maybe Barnett has the cash to buy the naming rights. He could call it "Perth Colinseum", keep Perth in the name and give credit where it's due. Win-win.

That's just the support sections that the bright orange ceiling panels attach on to.
