WHY IS THE BANKWEST STADIUM LAYOUT DIFFERENT TO PIRTEK STADIUM?
Bankwest Stadium will be a world class state-of-the-art stadium and has been modelled on the most iconic and traditional football venues around the world. With a 360-degree continuous bowl, full venue coverage, the steepest grandstands in Australia bringing fans closest to the action and providing world class spectator views, there will not be a bad seat in the house.
Bankwest Stadium has been designed to a capacity of 30,000. The Western stand has a capacity of 3,000 seats and will house all corporate, stadium, team and media facilities. The Northern, Southern and Eastern stands have a capacity of 27,000 seats and will be allocated to members according to their membership category. Therefore, it is not possible to replicate your previous seat from Pirtek Stadium in an equivalent or similar position based on the design provided by the NSW Government.
HOW WAS THE DECISION MADE FOR THE BANKWEST STADIUM SEATING MAP?
The new layout at Bankwest Stadium is based off the best traditional Football venues across Europe and around the World. Wanderers Members will be closest to all the football action with the steepest stands and the largest fixed roof in Australia, giving coverage for everyone in the venue and providing the best atmosphere in Australian sport!
