Pollstar (01/19/24) Eliezer, Christie
Perth live event venues won four of five categories at Austadium's recent national 2023 Stadium Awards. The four sites are among 14 owned by VenuesWest on behalf of the West Australian government. Optus Stadium was crowned best stadium for the fourth time, receiving 43 percent of the public vote, and also took best cricket ground. Chief Executive Mike McKenna comments, "A stadium is a pretty soulless place without fans, and the people that continue to flock to events and enjoy the Optus Stadium experience are a huge part of this recognition." Meanwhile, RAC Arena won best indoor arena, accounting for 47 percent of the public vote. Finally, the best rectangular stadium award went to HBF Park, taking 29 percent for top honors. One other note, GMHBA Stadium in Geelong, Victoria, claimed best regional stadium for the fourth time.
