MIKE McKenna – one of Australia’s leading sports administrators – has been appointed to the role of Chief Executive Officer at the new Perth Stadium.
A grand stage for Sydney’s major sports and entertainment events, ANZ Stadium has welcomed more than 23.5 million fans since it was purpose-built for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Everyone remembers where they were when Cathy ran, when Aloisi scored, or when unforgettable NRL Grand Finals, State of Origin games, FFA blockbusters and Bledisloe Cup matches unfolded. The NSW Government’s recent commitment to the redevelopment of ANZ Stadium will ensure this iconic venue continues to host many of the nation’s biggest events and most iconic sporting moments well into the future.
VenuesLive has officially been appointed operator of the Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct by the Government of Western Australia. Perth Stadium is destined to become one of the great Stadiums of the world when it opens for business. With a capacity of 60,000 and a fans-first approach in design and technology, Perth Stadium will be a multi-purpose venue capable of hosting AFL, cricket, football, rugby union, rugby league and entertainment events. The VenuesLive management team will secure and bring to life an array of large and smaller-scale events planned for Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct, which is scheduled to open in early 2018.
