In an update, WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley was joined by The New Day at a press event Yesterday, and the 2024 Elimination Chamber PLE was announced for Saturday, February 24 at Optus Stadium in Perth, Western Australia.


Optus Stadium was completed in late 2017 and opened in January 2018. The capacity is 61,266 people, including standing room, which makes it the third-largest stadium in Australia. However, the stadium can be extended up to 65,000 seats for rectangular sports, and 70,000 for concerts. The current attendance record for Optus Stadium is 73,092 for the Ed Sheeran concert on March 12, 2023. The stadium, which sits on the banks of the Swan River, has a fully enclosed, open-roofed dome. The roof, known as Falcon’s Nest, can be adjusted for weather control, but the average Perth temperatures in late February are a high of 72°F and a low of 52°F.
