The WACA (Western Australian Cricket Association Ground) has played host to many sports in the past. It is the home of Western Australian Cricket with International and State Cricket fixtures held annually at the ground. Over the years, the WACA has also played host to Australian Football, Rugby League, Rugby Union & Soccer. The WACA was last redeveloped in 2002 resulting in much improved facilities for both players and spectators. The redevelopment reduced capacity to around 20,000 and decreased the dimensions of the playing arena, meaning Australian Football can no longer be played at the ground. An icon of the WACA is its large six light towers, which stand at 70 metres high and have an average of 138 lights in each of them. Opened in 1986 at a cost of $4.2 million, the lights cost $600 per hour to run.

The WACA, Western Australia's second largest sporting venue, played host to all night AFL games, however it hosted its last official AFL game on 16th July 2000 after lights were contructed at Subiaco Oval, the home of WA Football. The WACA redevelopment in the winter of 2002 made the ground more suitable for cricket by reducing the playing arena size. Other features of the redevelopment included moving the members end to the opposite end of the ground, a new players pavilion beside the Lillee Marsh (Members) Stand, demolishing the old players pavilion and Farley Stand, installing new seats throughout the venue and replacing seats with grass hills on each side of the. As a result, the pernament capacity of the stadium is around 20,000 with the use of temporary stands for major events able to boost the capaciy to around 24,000. The other two grandstands at the venue are the Prindiville Stand - a three-tiered stand opposite the members, and the Inverarity or "Test" stand situated beside it.
