Demand soars for top seats at Optus Stadium

The initial allocation of Perth’s newest and most exciting premium sports and entertainment program, the Bankwest Club was exhausted within two hours of applications opening today and a waiting list is now in place.

The Bankwest Club is the first stadium membership product of its kind in Western Australia and all club members will enjoy dedicated premium seats at Optus Stadium for every event.

Optus Stadium CEO Mike McKenna said demand today for the Bankwest Club seats reflected the huge appetite for this world-class venue. He said:

This is a fantastic product, the only one of its kind in Western Australia. The demand we have experienced today demonstrates the huge interest in Optus Stadium and we look forward to welcoming every Bankwest Club member to this magnificent venue from early next year.

Over 40 major events will take place at Optus Stadium each year. The first event for Bankwest Club Members will be the Open Day on Sunday 21 January 2018.

This will be followed by the AFL Women’s match between Fremantle Dockers and Collingwood on Saturday 10 February, two Ed Sheeran concerts on 2 and 3 March 2018, the Perth NRL Double Header on 10 March, all before Round 1 of the AFL Premiership Season on Sunday 25 March 2018.
