More jobs on offer at Perth Stadium

28 April, 2017

Perth Stadium may be more than three-quarters built but it is the gift that keeps on giving to WA suppliers.

Ahead of the official opening in early 2018, stadium operator VenuesLive expects to award more than $20 million worth of supply contracts to support the operational needs of the venue.

Perth Stadium CEO Mike McKenna will offer more details on the supply opportunities at CCI’s Meet the Buyer – Perth Stadium breakfast on May 23.

“The goods and services required are varied and provide opportunities for local businesses of all sizes,” he says.

As would be expected for such a big entertainment complex, supply of kitchen equipment, along with food and beverages to serve to the 60,000 fans on event days, are among the new contracts on offer.

McKenna says Perth Stadium is also seeking the supply of casual labour, linen services, uniforms, safety equipment, plus waste management and cleaning services.

Perth Stadium will be a full-time operation with two restaurants and parklands open every day.

When the footbridge is complete, it will open the Burswood Peninsula to East Perth.

The State Government’s Perth Stadium website says construction of the stadium and sports precinct is 78 per cent, while installation of the facade is 99 per cent finished.

The stadium is expected to be open for the start of the 2018 AFL season and will host a range of high profile events with a ‘fan first’ approach to design and technology.
