There will be open spaces to cater to both grassroot and high-performance football events.

Once open, the football centre will be able to accommodate up to 700 spectators through permanent seating. Furthermore, this capacity is expandable up to 2,000 spectators through temporary seating during occasional events.

To meet the growth requirements of this sport, the footprint and design of the centre will enable future expansion.

According to WA government, the State Football Centre will also be used as a training centre for the participants of FIFA Women's World Cup 2023.

Australian and state governments have invested $16.25m each in the project.

Western Australia Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Barnaby Joyce said: "We are getting the job done for Western Australians, delivering the infrastructure and facilities they need and deserve.

“Once complete, the State Football Centre will provide the state's future sports stars with a platform from which to reach their dreams. It will also attract more events to Perth, supporting jobs, boosting tourism and driving new economic opportunities for the state."
