WACA set for $30-million boost
The Federal Government has committed $30 million funding investment towards the WACA Ground improvement project.
Cricket Australia will kick in $4 million while the WACA aims to raise another $10 million via the WA Cricket Foundation.
The WACA hopes the state government will match the federal government's commitment.
WACA CEO Christina Matthews said it was an exciting step forward for the future of cricket.
"So many of us have a cherished WACA Ground memory and now we can retain its heritage and rich history, while creating a venue with a strong community focus that has multi-sport, gender equal facilities." Matthews told the media on Sunday.
The redevelopment is set to expand the ground's community spaces and includes an indoor multi-sport facility.
