Hockey Australia today announced Western Australia was successful over 2 other shortlisted states, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory.

The current facility at Curtin University will now be transformed into a world-class, purpose-built Australian Hockey Centre with 3 international hockey pitches, a specialist goalkeeper training facility, an indoor hockey centre and extensive recovery, gym and support facilities.

The new Home of Hockey will be an impressive international stage for players and fans with seating for up to 10,000 spectators, and the latest broadcasting capabilities so WA can show the world all the action.

The State Government's successful bid, in partnership with Hockey WA and the Western Australian Institute of Sport, was centred around Perth's rich hockey history and ability to meet the needs of Hockey Australia's High Performance Program.

It focused on athlete wellbeing, based on its connection to the broader hockey community, strong domestic competition, proximity to Asia, lifestyle appeal, athlete support networks and world-class facilities.
