A world-class, locally grown turf business has been chosen to provide the playing surface for the new Perth Stadium. This morning I visited the stadium site with Premier Colin Barnett, Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies and senior representatives from the Football Federation Australia for the announcement of local company HG Sports Turf as supplier of the grass playing surface. HG Sports Turf will be in charge of installing more than 17,000 square metres of turf. The Perth Stadium and Sports Precinct is now more than 50 percent complete and on schedule to open in time for the start of the 2018 AFL season.
