Cricket Ashes, 3rd Test: Iconic WACA stadium in Perth set to host final match Future Ashes contests will be held at the shiny, new Perth Stadium on the opposite bank of the Swan River, a 60,000-seat arena that will use a drop-in pitch, host rock concerts and share tenancy with two Australian Rules football teams.
The WACA Ground will get one final Ashes hurrah after the new $1.2 billion Perth Stadium lost its race to be ready in time to host WA’s showpiece Test this summer. Cricket Australia was hopeful that the new 60,000-seat venue at Burswood would be completed ahead of time to host Australia’s third Test against England, starting on December 14.

The WACA Ground (pronounced wakka) is a 24,500 capacity cricket stadium situated in Perth, Western Australia. WACA are the initials of its owners and operators, the Western Australian Cricket Association. The ground has been the "home" of cricket in Western Australia since the early 1890s, and the first Test match was played in 1970. Test cricket could return to the WACA Ground as early as next year if New Zealand come to Perth as part of the new Test championship. And the WA Cricket Association is planning a $1 million ground extension that could see night WAFL matches played at the WACA as early as this season.
