#TheFurnace is the home of the reigning BBL champions Perth Scorchers. 

The Ground achieved a record last season, selling out three matches and attracting over 95,000 supporters of the #OrangeNation. 

Famous for its fanatical crowds, fast and bouncy wicket and a sea of orange, the Perth Scorchers match day experience is one of the highlights of the Western Australian summer.

Set at the Eastern end of the CBD, #TheFurnace is located on the banks of the Swan River and bordered by Trinity College to the east, Gloucester Park to the north and the beautiful Queens Gardens to the west.  In the summer time you will find the ground packed with fans enjoying all the action in the Perth sunshine.

Family friendly grass banks and the Prindiville and Inverarity Stands are open to the public, with the Lillee Marsh Stand the home of WACA Members.

It can hold up to 22,000 people for a T20 match.
