Sports Fans User Group nominations have now closed
Tuesday 29 January 2013
Thank you for your interest in nominating for the Sports Fans User Group. The nominations have now closed, and the project team will now commence the selection process for members of this group.
It is anticipated this will take a few weeks based on the overwhelming response. The fans selected will be advised personally and the final group will be announced on the new Perth Stadium website on this page.
Close to 500 nominations were received from passionate sports fans.
The selection panel will base their selection process on obtaining a broad cross-section of passionate fans that truly represent the interests and concerns of sports lovers across the State. Consultation with sports fans is a crucial step in delivering on the "fan first" philosophy of the new Perth Stadium. The members of the Sports Fans User Group will have the opportunity to comment on proposed stadium elements and their effect on the fan experience.
Initially meeting on four occasions throughout March and April 2013, members of the Sports Fans User Group will provide input into the development of the new Perth Stadium.
When will I find out if I’ve been selected?
Selected fans will be announced in February.
Which sports will be represented in this new group?
The primary users of this stadium will be represented, which includes passionate fans of AFL, cricket, rugby league, rugby union and football (soccer).
What if I have a primary interest in live music events, rather than sports?
The new Perth Stadium will be developed with input from a broad cross section of fans, which includes concert-goers.
Who will select the user group members?
Members of the new Perth Stadium Project Team will select the 30 fans, as well as a short list of 10 in case there are any people who withdraw their nomination due to availability.
How will you evaluate the entries?
As we are building a “fan first” stadium, your submission of up to 50 words describing your area of interest to ensure the new Perth Stadium gives a world-class “fan first” experience is very important to ensure a broad mix of fans.
People may choose to specify an area of interest, which will be considered when entries are evaluated to ensure a broad range of fans are represented.
Non-members may have good ideas on what would further drive their interest in becoming a member in the future, so both members and non-members will be assessed on their merits.
What if I don’t have access to the internet?
If you would like to nominate for the Sports Fans User Group but do not have access to the internet, please call the new Perth Stadium Project Team on 1300 433 306 and we will enter on your behalf. Please note you should have your 50 word submission already drafted, as we can not assist with this.
What is the time commitment for the user group?
The Sports Fans User Group will meet on up to four occasions before the end of April 2013, with a maximum of 90 minutes duration each.
