    As far as I know the WACA is staying Status Quo, only the big games will be played at the new stadium. Aus Vs West Indies, Sri Lanka and so on, will still be at the WACA.

    Aus vs England, India and South Africa will be at Perth Stadium.

    The plan was to shrink it down to 15,000 capacity, and use / sell off the land freed up around it - playing matches such as mentioned above there - plus was to become the new home for the WAFC, play WAFL matches there etc
    However...... during the December test they appeared to retreat on that saying all matches would be played at the Stadium now.
    So quite possibly it will be turned in to a football ground primarily, on which Sheffield Sheild matches can be played in summer.

    im happy to see the back of it. 
    A stadium where you have a members ticket... but its still a free for all when you get into the ground for a seat?
    taking a lead in a demountable that is a centremetre deep in urine? 
    I went to the last game on Thursday and will be going to teh first Scorchers game at the new stadium next Thursday. I cant wait!

    We’ll see.
    I’m sceptical what “members” at the stadium is going to be like, but will find out tomorrow I guess...

    See my post in other thread sorry.
    Stadium overall - great.
    Facilities as a member - a downgrade from WACA. Nowhere to congregate for a beer. No atmosphere etc.
