Football fans in Perth are in for a treat this July, with two of the world’s most prestigious football clubs, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, set to face off in an Australian-exclusive London derby at Optus Stadium.

The highly anticipated EPL match is set to take place on 18 July, with West Ham also taking on home heroes Perth Glory at Optus Stadium 15 July.

The blockbuster games come just before the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 descends on Perth, with five matches to be held between 22 July – 3 August at Perth Rectangular Stadium.
The must-see matches will see seven major football matches involving 11 international teams in just 20 days, making Western Australia the home of football in July.

The two EPL matches are expected to attract interstate and international visitors, support local hospitality and tourism businesses, and see millions of dollars generated for the WA economy.
Last year, four EPL teams – Manchester United, Aston Villa, Leeds United and Crystal Palace – played at Optus Stadium, generating an economic impact of $77 million, including 4,700 out-of-State visitors to Perth.

Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham are two of the world’s best known football clubs, both with a rich history and tradition.
Tottenham Hotspur are currently in fourth position in the EPL and have had a string of successful seasons, while West Ham have also had their fair share of success, with a dramatic rise up the ladder in recent years.

Perth is the only place in Australia where you can see English Premier League clubs in action in 2023.
I am also looking forward to our own Perth Glory matching it with some of the best players in the world.”

Sport and Recreation Minister David Templeman also commented: “These matches are exclusive to Western Australia and will serve as a fantastic entrée to the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Hosting such prestigious football events is great for the grassroots game – kids will be inspired and spurred on to give the game a go themselves.”
