After 12 AFL matches at Optus Stadium, the venue had an average attendance of 48,625 – second only to the MCG's 54,239.

The average attendance for AFL matches represents a 41 per cent increase in AFL football attendance in Western Australia, following the move from Subiaco Oval to Optus Stadium.

Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray marked the milestone by awarding Optus Stadium's one millionth guest, Neil Alweyn, with four tickets to an upcoming event of their choice and a voucher for City View Café.

Neil Alweyn and friends were escorted by the Minister to upgraded seats in the Premiership Terrace, where they were able to watch the match, courtesy of the Fremantle Football Club.

Optus Stadium is also celebrating an average visitor satisfaction rating of more than 90 per cent, with guests at Ed Sheeran's two concerts in March reporting an 89 per cent satisfaction rating, rising to 94 per cent more recently at the Western Derby on April 29.

Comments attributed to Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray:

"Optus Stadium is the undisputed home of WA sport.

"Six months after the opening of Optus Stadium, we are second only to the MCG in terms of AFL crowds, with 41 per cent more Western Australians enjoying live AFL football each week.

"Most Western Australian footy fans would argue we love our football just as much as the Victorians, and we are punching well above our weight by giving the MCG a run for its money.

"The high customer satisfaction ratings, which rose to 94 per cent at the most recent measure, are testament to the quality of the venue and the people running it."
