Hooper v England Player; Rise for the Rivalry

The international rugby union test match scheduled for 2 July 2022 was secured by the State Government through Tourism Western Australia, in partnership with Rugby Australia.

It will be the first time England Rugby has played a test match in Perth in more than a decade and will be the team's Optus Stadium debut.

The test match is the first of the three-game England tour and is testament to Perth's success in hosting huge sporting events, after more than 52,000 fans packed out Optus Stadium for last year's Bledisloe Cup.

The Wallabies v England match is expected to attract thousands of out-of-State visitors and inject millions of dollars into the WA economy, supporting local jobs and businesses. The event is also anticipated to generate millions in broadcast media value.

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster
