Last year for NRL. Nothing to do with capacity more a gimmick and maybe a test run.

Incompetence & apathy. Built it and they will come if they actually can be bothered to use it

Its ridiculous that they spent all the extra money to add the rectangular seating and now they wont use it even on massive events where its a no-brainer in terms of being able to sell the extra tickets.

They must charge too much to bring in the extra seating

Still recovering costs from using them for the NRL game.

Far from the action even in that mode. These stadiums really aren't ideal for rectangular sports. Obviously a great new stadium for AFL though. Should be an oval and rectangular version side by side

Its a pitty the plans for a rectangular stadium near Perth Arena never happened.
Of course its not viable (right now at least) to build a stadium in Perth specifically for rectangular field games that is large enough to host the crowds for a Glory grand final or a State of Origin or a Manchester United match or a major international Rugby event...

only way i think itll be viable is if the NRL awards a team to Perth.

Wouldn't we just continue to upgrade NIB stadium in stages?

AFL and Cricket are now well served by Optus Stadium which are by far the 2 most popular sports. 1 offs like Manchester United and State of Origin are not enough to justify a new large rectangular stadium.

Agree. And if they rebuild the main stand (heritage issues notwithstanding) to a similar standard to the new east stand and put a roof on the southern stand it will be quite imposing (although then the shed will be truly ready for replacement...sad times)

No, what is ridiculous is that the government spent money on bump in seats that do not even meet stadium requirements for a major FIFA event.

What is also ridiculous is that Barnett and co went around harping on about the so called rectangular mode, when the reality was that the bump in seats just make a slightly smaller oval.

What is more ridiculous then that is the amount of people who swallowed all the BS.

Sure, if your sole interest is to maximise profit with a few thousand extra seats then go ahead. But as a spectator, they are not great seats at all, and they barely make the stadium look more rectangular.

It will be a few thousand less people In the rain this Sunday anyway. Looking like the worst stadium event weather so far unfortunately.

Being the football/soccer tragic that I am, as well as a stadium enthusiast and wannabe stadium designer as a side hobby, I have read through the lengthy FIFA document that outlines all their technical requirements for world cup stadiums, which I presume applies not just to the major mens tournament but probably also the female world cup, which we are currently bidding for, and perhaps also world cups in lower age categories.

But anyway, to answer your question, firstly there is a requirement that the first row be at least one metre high. Given that in oval mode the front row is already roughly one metre high or slightly more, then by the time you add rows in front it is surely going to fall below the one metre mark.

Additionaly, there are strict sightline requirements. If a seat does not meet thsoe requirements, FIFA will not make it available. And they have proven this before by simply blocking off unsuitable seats. GIven that the advertsing boards are one metre high and never further than 5 metres from the touchline, as per FIFA requirements, then from a distance further back in an oval venue, you are really going to struggle to see over the advertsing boards in the front rows.
