VenuesWest Chairman Graham Partridge OAM is proud to announce VenuesWest is now the operator of Perth’s world class rectangular stadium, nib Stadium.

“Over the last five months, VenuesWest has been working to find a highly skilled management team to operate the Stadium and continue its success in delivering great customer experiences for many years to come,” said Mr Partridge

“It has been a smooth transition with the fulltime employment of nine positions including the appointment of General Manager Peter Bauchop, who brings with him over 17 years of venue management experience and extensive knowledge of the both nib Stadium and VenuesWest.

With more good news for nib Stadium and West Australians, Perth Glory and Western Force Rugby Club have both confirmed they will be signing up for another season.

“Nib Stadium has been home to Perth Glory and the Western Force for many years and on behalf of VenuesWest we look forward to a fruitful season for both teams at Perth’s only purpose-built rectangular Stadium,” said Mr Partridge.

“We are proud to be both the owner and now operator of such a diverse and unique sports stadium, which caters for a number of Australia’s most popular sports.”

VenuesWest has governed the facility since 2012 on behalf of the State Government.

“In 2013 the State invested $95 million into nib Stadium, providing a high quality rectangular stadium which seats approximately 20,300,” Mr Partridge said.

Coinciding with this, VenuesWest will also be adding to this by upgrading some of the food and beverage areas for fans as well as some aesthetic improvements in regards to storage areas. The upgrades will also improve egress from the venues after large scale events.

“It’s our priority to ensure Western Australia’s premier rectangular sports and entertainment venue delivers a diverse range of quality sporting events including one of Australia’s most popular games”

VenuesWest is Western Australia’s provider of premier sports, recreation and entertainment venues.
