Closed/Former Venue

Subiaco Oval

Subiaco Oval is the former home of Australian Football in Western Australia, serving as the home ground of the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers. The venue, which was most recently known as Domain Stadium, hosted its last AFL match in 2017, with games moved to the new Perth Stadium. Prior to the opening of the new stadium at Burswood, Subiaco Oval was Perth's largest stadium with a 43,000-seat capacity and hosted a variety of sports. The venue is now closed with the grandstands to be demolished in the near future.

Subiaco Oval was built in 1908 and was then known as Mueller Park, with the first match on 9th of May in that year between Subiaco and East Perth. The facilities have been consistently improved since. The three-tier grandstand which dominates the end behind the goals opened on 31 August 1969 and the two-tier Stand on the members’ wing on 27 April 1981. The stand opposite the members stand opened on 14 May 1995 which included two tiers of seating and corporate boxes on the wing.

Floodlights were installed at the venue in 1997, with the first game played under lights on March 29 between West Coast Eagles and Sydney Swans. The final stage of redevelopment at Subiaco Oval was in 1999 with a new two tier grandstand replacing the standing room at the eastern end to connect the grandstands on either side, constructed at the cost of $35 million, to create a full bowl and convert the stadium into an all-seat venue.

Subiaco Oval is as much an icon as it is a stadium, the ground is well known around Australia, due to the battles between the West Coast Eagles and its main rivals in its early days, and more recently the local derbies against cross town rivals, Fremantle Dockers. The 2000 National Soccer League Grand Final between Perth Glory and Wollongong Wolves was a highlight, played in front of a then-record crowd (since the redevelopment) of 43,242. The ground has also hosted Rugby Union with the Wallabies and Western Force previously playing at the ground and many concerts.

Patersons Securities became the first naming-rights holder of the venue in October 2010 before the name changed from Patersons Stadium to Domain Stadium in February 2015 following a three-year naming-rights agreement.

Subiaco Oval hosted its final event in November 2017 - an International Rules Series match between Australia and Ireland. The 60,000-capacity Optus Stadium now hosts all events previously held at Subi. The oval is set to be retained however the majority of the grandstands will be demolished before 2020 - when a new school opens on the eastern side of the ground.
