The WACA Ground is the birthplace of WA cricket, the place where cricket has grown from community grassroots through to the elite level.

The Ground hosts more than 600 cricket events each year, but there’s no denying that the Ground has failed to keep up with modern requirements and its ageing infrastructure needing ongoing maintenance and repair, now requires urgent investment.

The Improvement Project will transform the Ground into a must-see boutique, multi-sports venue that complements Optus Stadium and can be utilised for community events.

The project includes equitable facilities for professional female cricket players, quality indoor training facilities, a state-of-the-art museum and greater community cricket access for matches, training, and participation opportunities.

The project will also play a key role in activating the East Perth precinct and will include a piazza, public fitness facility, meeting rooms and lecture theatre.

The WACA has been hitting the campaign trail hard in the lead up to the Federal election on May 18 and has received overwhelming support from local media.

WACA CEO Christina Matthews had a chat with 6PR Newstalk about the importance of the project for cricket in this State and the wider WA community.
