RAC Arena (formerly Perth Arena) officially opened in November 2012. The indoor sporting and entertainment arena has a maximum seating capacity of 14,500 and features a retractable roof.
Its prime location within the Perth CBD brings it close to public transport, the freeway, the city centre and will serve as a vital link to Northbridge, as Perth’s premier entertainment destination.
RAC Arena provides the capital of Western Australia with a large indoor arena - something the city had lacked since the closure of the Perth Entertainment Centre. As well as hosting concerts, the venue is home to NBL team Perth Wildcats and hosted the annual Hopman Cup tennis tournament - as of 2020, the ATP Cup.
The state-of-the-art acoustic design makes Perth Arena one of the leading concert venues in the world. As well as the retractable roof and 14,500 seats, the venue also includes a 680 bay car park, 5 function rooms and a café and bar on the ground floor operating during event and non-event times.
Perth Arena is known as RAC Arena as of September 2018 with its first naming-rights agreement sold in a deal worth $10 million over five years.
