Australia will take on India in the second Test of the summer, starting Friday at Perth Stadium.
Thousands of Western Australians flocked to Ticketmaster yesterday to snap up free tickets to the Optus Stadium Open Day on Sunday 21 January 2018.
The initial allocation of 70,000 tickets were claimed within 90 minutes, standing to prove just how excited Perth is for its brand new stadium.
Responding the the exceptional demand, Premier Mark McGowan has now authorised an additional 40,000 free tickets to be made available today, “This world-class Stadium belongs to the people of Western Australia and demand for the Open Day today has been exceptional.
“I am delighted that even more people will now have the chance to see inside the Stadium for the very first time.”
The 40,000 new tickets will be the final allocation, after which time the Open Day will be officially sold out.
Each ticket for the Open Day includes public transport to and from the Stadium. Ticket holders will be able to browse and explore Optus Stadium and experience the amazing ‘fan first’ facilities that have been integrated into its design.
The Stadium Park precinct will also be filled with a range of free family activities, entertainment, food and live music.
You’ll also be able to fully explore the Stadium Park, which features public art, nature playgrounds in the Chevron Parkland, and the BHP Boardwalk.
Following the Optus Stadium Open Day on Sunday 21 January 2018, the Stadium will host the AFL Women’s fixture between Fremantle and Collingwood on 10 February 2018, before two Ed Sheeran concerts and the Perth NRL Double Header in March followed by the start of the 2018 AFL season.
