Media User Group

Consultation with key interest groups is a crucial step in ensuring the venue is suitable for organisations that will be reporting on the Stadium's events.

So that Perth Stadium will be able to bring a new experience in sports viewing and entertainment, it was important that relevant interest groups were consulted to ensure that appropriate arrangements will be in place for media-related needs. The group members represented organisations such as Channel 7, The West Australian, The Sunday Times, ABC, 96FM, Sports News First, Western Australian Football Commission, Australian Football League, West Coast Eagles Football Club and Fremantle Football Club.

The focus for this User Group was generally on the needs of modern media, which included match-day viewing arrangements for all of the different sporting configurations, requirements for broadcast and written press facilities, the design of media lounges, TV and radio studios, camera locations, and technical, data and wiring requirements.
