    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    Ok. Or a deal in kind with some cash for keeping the NRL GF in Sydney. The two stadiums the NRL should look at IMO are SFS and Commbank.

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    Now the article mentioned more than one stadium. I agree with you I would certainly choose the SFS over Accor. More anchor tenants as well as revenue earned from better corporate facilities. The other option id look at would be Commbank stadium. With the Tigers looking to go back to suburban...

    Interesting, if NRL had a choice whether to have a stake in Accor or SFS which would you choose? And why...

    Leichhardt is an interesting one if they get 60mil. Now consider the new stand at Brookvale was for 33mil. Could maybe do a northern stand similar to one at shark park with corp boxes on the top. Refurb the existing stand, maybe extending it north and south so the end connects with new northern...

    I don't think that will ever happen, too many bitter old boys who need to look down on League as a status symbol. It's just the way it is and one of the reasons why union will always survive in Australia, due to its white collar support/background. You only need to look at some of the private...

    True, i mean the Wookie maybe from an AFL background but I don't see anyone else taking the time and effort to post these details. It should be appreciated. I think RL has learned a lot from the AFL and will close the gap as time goes on. Will it ever be bigger than AFL ? Who cares, I do think...

    Can we give the code warz stuff a rest.. Having a strong competitor is good for both codes. Really who cares if AFL is bigger at the end of day NRL should measure itself with NRL's past performance. There is a lot of upside to the NRL so we are heading in the right direction. :)

    Anyone see an article about a new COE for Queensland ? Based at QACS

    Stalled and stagnant Sydney clubs

    On a side note, how is the Storm crowd and atmosphere compared to the "super round". Interesting to notice the corporate areas too.. I recall a Peter Fitzimmons article when the Rebels were starting talking about the end of the Storm. As Melbourne was a union city and the Storm would have to...

    18th club, whose next?

    I think we want to be very cautious about the 18th team being a NZ team. Will give more thoughts later. However interesting article about Super rugby ratings. https://www.1news.co.nz/2022/04/13/super-rugby-tv-ratings-drop-ahead-of-blues-crusaders-showdown/

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    Well for a start its not the NRL's stadium and the trust would raise revenue through these memberships. For anyone that has a bit of coin, it will be great value. Seats on middle tier with your private members bar. One positive compared to Commbank stadium is that there will be public seating...

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    I can pretty much confirm it will be on the middle deck western side. Just spoke to a mate who is a long time member. Bottom tier = All general public middle tier = SCG members on western side, corporate on east and public on corners and ends. Top tier = Public Let's assume top tier has a...

    Be interesting to see the capacity of each tier at the new SFS. I think the top tier capacity is 14,000, 7,000 each on the western and eastern grandstand.

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    Im pretty sure the middle tier on the western grandstand will be for the trust members. Middle tier on eastern grandstand is mostly corporate except for the sides and ends. So general public would be all of the bottom tier, ends and corners of middle tier and if demand determines it the top 2...

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    Interesting, does not look like a lot of public seating on the second tier besides behind try line. Its going to be great for corporates another reason why I don't think Souths can not avoid going back.

    18th club, whose next?

    Agree with some posters 18th club seems to be leaning towards NZ2. - TV revenue dictates expansion as far as the NRL is concerned. - NZ2 would give an uplift on SKY NZ as well as Aussie media rights for the extra game. - Can't see a Perth team increasing the SKY NZ broadcast revenue. (I...

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    I like you're thinking provided my beloved Bunnies do move back to the new SFS. Lunch and drinks at the Juniors then a tram up to SFS and back to Juniors with a drunk Uber home. Can't wait to experience this, not to mention the plethora of pubs and eateries in the area. Just can't have that...

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    Just seen an article in Telegraph about Shepherd wanting to base the world T20 final at Accor stadium. In the end it all makes sense, we had the chance to have a proper "Wembley style rectangular" stadium. As soon as the SCG trust got involved I had a feeling it would be in their interests...

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    This was my concern having the chairman of GWS as the chairman of the new stadium body in NSW. I wish all NRL clubs abandon Accor Stadium, almost half way there with Souths hopefully going back to the SFS. That could put the government/stadium body in a position to upgrade it into a proper...
