Venue Information


Subiaco Oval was first built in 1908, at which point it was known as Mueller Park. In 1969 a three-tier stand was constructed at the western end of the stadium, and in 1981 a two-tier stand on the members' wing was completed. A further redevelopment came in 1995 with the opening of the new two-tier "ANZ Stand" opposite the members' wing. In 1997, light towers were installed at the ground. The last redevelopment, which converted the stadium into an all-seat venue, was completed in 1999 at a cost of $AUD35 million.

Subiaco Oval's capacity is 42,922 fully-seated. The ground is floodlit by four lighting towers. There was some initial concern vented surrounding the lack of aesthetic value of the proposed floodlights, but after their deployment these concerns quickly subdued although the local community still experiences a range of issues with events at the venue.

In 2005 the West Australian Football Commission released a $235 million plan (excluding transport infrastructure or land acquisitions) to increase the stadium to a 60,000 seat venue in a staged project. However, this proposal became a matter of significant debate in Western Australia.

In July 2007 the Government of Western Australia announced it's preference to build a new 60,000-seat stadium rather than re-develop Subiaco Oval. It was not revealed when a stadium might be built by, but it was stated that the government would have a clear plan on the issue by the next state election in 18 months' time, giving it time to consult the different sports organisations that would use the stadium.
