Key facts

Club: Perth Glory FC | Opening: 1910 | Capacity: 20,299 seats

History and description

nib Stadium, also known as Perth Oval, was built in 1910 to serve as an Australian football ground, though sports, including soccer, had been played at the site, that was known as Loton’s Paddock, before.

Being built to host Australian football, the stadium was oval-shaped, though apart from being the home of East Perth football club, also hosted cricket and the odd soccer match. A new grandstand was built in 1956.

In 1995, the Perth Oval became the home of newly formed Perth Glory, however the oval shape of the stadium proved ill-suited for soccer. Once East Perth moved out in 1999, plans were therefore made to redevelop the stadium to a rectangular shape. Works started in 2003 and were completed one year later.

Perth Oval has had various sponsorship names, first Members Equity Stadium, next ME Bank Stadium, and finally since 2010 nib Stadium.
