A third of Optus Stadium's workforce will be lured from other venues and various partners for the AFL Preliminary Final on 11 September and Grand Final on 25 September.

Staff from VenuesWest have responded to the call-out to ensure 2000 workers are on hand for both showdowns.

The shortage in casual workers in the State has been long documented and in order to ensure Optus Stadium and VenuesWest maintain the 'fans first' experience, the entire Perth community have come together.

All staff who put up their hand are very excited to be involved and proud of the part that they will play in such a historic occasion for the State.
