40,000 Tickets Added For Perth Stadium Open Day

An extra allocation of tickets will be made available for Optus Stadium’s Open Day after the initial allocation sold out within two hours.

The Western Australian government will make an additional 40,000 free tickets available after its initial allocation of 70,000 were snapped up within 90 minutes.

Tickets will be available from 10am on Friday for the day which would be the last allocation.

Premier Mark McGowan said the demand for the tickets had resulted new morning sessions added to the schedule for the day.

“This world-class stadium belongs to the people of Western Australia and demand for the open day today has been exceptional,” he said.

“I am delighted that even more people will now have the chance to see inside the Stadium for the very first time.”

Sports Minister Mick Murray said there will not be any more tickets when they sold out.

“We can’t fit any more people in on that day safely so it won’t happen and it will be unfortunate that there may be some people that will miss out,” he said.

Ticket holders will be able to explore the stadium’s features and experience facilities for fans.

The Stadium park precinct will also include a range of free family activities, entertainment and food.

Mr Murray advised people who ordered tickets to “pass them on” if they did not plan on using them.

“I’d hate to think people missed out because people took the whole six,” he said.

Tickets would not be sent out until January 8, to reduce the chance of them being scalped.

Users had complained credit card details had been request when applying using the Ticketmaster app, but Mr Murray said it would be looked into.

The Government is advising all users to instead use the perthstadium.com.au website.
