RugbyWA received the keys to its new AUmillion home on Thursday in what is the biggest advance for rugby in the state since the introduction of the Western Force.
The world class facility is purpose built for RugbyWA and includes all the strength and conditioning, rehabilitation, education and administration requirements to take WA rugby to the next level.
The Western Australian Rugby Centre will not only be a massive boost to the elite performance needs of the Western Force but also coaching, refereeing and grassroots development.
“We are extremely grateful to the State Government for their commitment to the thorough planning and execution of a project that has delivering a truly world class facility,” said RugbyWA Chairman Russel Perry.
“The Western Australian Rugby Centre will enable RugbyWA to continue to develop the code across the entire spectrum of playing, coaching and refereeing from grassroots to the top level.
“There has been an overwhelming positive reaction from our administration and professional rugby staff to their new surroundings and I'm sure our other stakeholders will be just as impressed with what they'll see.
“This is without doubt the most significant event for rugby in WA since the introduction of the Western Force some six years ago,” Perry added.
Participation numbers in WA have grown by more than 50 percent since the Western Force arrived on the state's sporting scene and there are 55 venues around the state hosting matches each week.
The Super Rugby programme has also enjoyed success in delivering the national set-up 10 new Wallabies in just six seasons, a figure that will no doubt continue to grow with the combination of the wonderful facilities now on offer and a talented squad of players in Perth.
