Super 14 stadium deal clears last hurdle
Wednesday 23rd September 2009  |  More News


Rugby WA and the Town of Vincent are set to finalise a deal which will see Super 14 matches played at ME Stadium for the next six years.

RugbyWA will be  given the green light to begin works to upgrade the stadium to meet the international competition requirements.

The council last night unanimously supported a three year deal with Rugby WA with an option to extend the lease by a further three years.

A $2.4 million upgrade to the pitch and facilities was also approved to ensure the stadium will be ready for the Super 14 season next year.

"This is a stellar outcome for both RugbyWA and the town," Mayor Nick Catania said.

"It is the culmination of over two years' of planning to ensure that rugby union players and fans have a true home for their beloved code."

"RugbyWA has worked hard with the Town of Vincent to ensure this upgrade will result in the best possible venue for the Emirates Western Force and its supporters. The Stadium will meet the standards required by SANZAR, now it is up to our players and fans to make it our fortress," said

The initial upgrade will include improved lighting, increased seating capacity and the installation of temporary corporate suites.

RugbyWA chief executive Vern Reid said the deal would deliver the best possible venue for the Emirates Western Fore and its supporters.

The Force will play six games at the stadium in 2010, with each match expected to attract more than 21,000 fans.
