CAMPAIGN TO GET A SOCCEROOS GAME IN PERTH
Perth has been a neglected city in terms of international football, and we think it is time that WA got another opportunity to show ourselves. The last time Perth hosted a Socceroos match was a pretty nondescript affair against Indonesia in 2005. Since then, 14 matches have been played in Australia, in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and even Canberra, but crucially - none in Perth.
A FEW REASONS WHY PERTH WOULD BE A GREAT VENUE
- We are proven supporters in a soccer state, forget Perth Glory's recent performances.
- We are capable of drawing a big crowd to a match of significance.
- Perth's location makes it easier for opposing nations to travel to Australia, particularly from Africa, West Asia and Europe.
It would be unrealistic to get Brazil out here and have the match in Perth, but we also think we deserve more than a Socceroos D-Grade team against Bhutan. There are a number of realistic options available for a game in Perth:
- Phase 1 World Cup Qualifying Match
- Asian Cup Qualifier
- High Profile Friendly
Get behind Perth's attempts to host a Socceroos match! As a soccer mad state, we deserve the opportunity to see our nation's finest, but we need your support to make it happen!
Once enough support has been gained, this petition will be sent to Ben Buckley, CEO of Football Federation Australia.

We, the undersigned, call on the FFA to give Perth the right to host a Socceroos match when the next group of fixtures is decided.
