State Football Centre

With only 4 days to go before Perth hosts 5 matches as part of the biggest women's sporting event on the planet, the centre was officially opened today before it provides the opportunity for teams from Denmark, Canada, Panama, Haiti and Morocco to train using its world-class facilities.

The 16-hectare site includes a two-storey building with a grandstand, 2 competition and training pitches, on-site parking and 3 five-a-side playing pitches.

The $46 million investment was jointly funded by State and Commonwealth Governments, with the State Government making a $29.71 million contribution.

The Department of Local, Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) has been managing the development at Queens Park Open Space, with work commencing on the site in February 2022 and the centre recently reaching practical completion.

VenuesWest with Football West will co-manage the day-to-day running of the venue.

From Wednesday, to celebrate the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™, a number of iconic State landmarks will be lit up in green and gold ahead of the Matilda's first match on Thursday night.

Football West has more than 50,000 members and now has a space in WA that the sport can call home.
