Optus Stadium

Burswood, Perth, Western Australia

Optus Stadium will transform the way fans experience major sport and entertainment events, re-shaping this Australian city and its landscape in the process.

Every design decision for the multi-purpose, 60,000-seat Optus Stadium in Western Australia is about achieving a singular vision – an unsurpassed visitor experience every time, every event.

The stadium’s innovative design – a collaboration between HASSELL, Cox and HKS – feels distinctly local, with architecture and landscaping that reflect the state’s proud sporting, cultural and Aboriginal heritage.

At the same time, it’s a destination that holds its own against other major venues around the world.
