    This is actually a really good outcome for Sydney if it comes off. ANZ would then be left as a major events stadium for the city. The NRL would only need it for the GF and Origin.

    New North Sydney Stadium (I wouldn't make it Brooky, I'd get a North Sydney stadium built, force the Eagles out of the peninsular) - Manly
    SFS - Roosters, RU, Soccer
    Western Sydney Stadium - Eels, Souths, Soccer
    New Penrith Stadium - Panthers
    New Liverpool Stadium - Dogs, Tigers, Soccer
    New South Sydney Stadium - Sharks & Dragons

    As a tax payer I am apposed to this. Especially a new stadium at Penrith. The one they have there now is fine. Just upgrade the hill to a bigger/steeper hill. Penrith has always been a stupid place for a team being that it is their is nothing West of it. You want people coming from a 360 degree radius around the stadium.

    Supercars have invested in a massive corporate/pit structure and stadiums they lug around the country. Its not unheard of.

    An upgraded North Sydney is a good idea.
    Souths at Parra stadium is a terrible idea.
    And Penrith stadium upgrades is an awful idea.
    But a new joint stadium for Dragons and Sharks is the worst idea since my relocatable stadiums idea this morning.

    I would prefer upgrades to Newcastle and Wollongong. Sick of the NSW government spending all the $ in Sydney.

    If Newcastle takes over the central coast as it should then Newcastle stadium should be upgraded at both ends to a fully enclosed 35k stadium.
    That should supersede Penrith or Manly.

    Newcastle should take over Australia and make it a 100k stadium.

    A catchment of 25 million fans! Wow!

    Don't get emotional. It should be 35k. That would be good for the economy. We want people leaving Sydney.

    If Newcastle was 35k it could host a lot of international sport.

    Reading between the lines it sort of looks a bit like...

    1) Brookvale Oval 20k, master plans are available online. They look pretty neat and mentioned capacity is 20K seats. No Hill. Manly 11-12 games and some union, soccer, local concerts etc..
    2) Penrith Stadium 20k - 25k ? Panthers 11-12 games, matilda's, local concerts etc..
    3) Liverpool Stadium 25k - 30k ? Bulldogs 12 games, Wests Tigers 4-5 games, pacific tests etc..
    4) Jubilee 18k - 22k ? The one stadium I don't quite agree with, could do with an upgrade but with Sharks confirming they won't move from Shark Park I don't see the point of a total rebuild for 5-6 St George games.

    My preference..
    New: Brookvale, Penrith, Liverpool: Mini Bankwest's at Penrith and Liverpool. New Brookvale will have 2 tiers on East and West stands. If anyone has the link please post it.

    Upgrades: Jubilee, LO, Shark Park.

    Campbelltown stadium misses out, think Liverpool is the much better option as far as RL is concerned than Campbelltown stadium.

    Just remember that the largest RL nursery in the world is around Penrith, and there are a lot of Panther supporters in the Blue Mountains.

    It is all east of Penrith.
    The population of the blue mountains is 12.

    Where do you come from? and who do you support?
    You certainly have no idea about Penrith!
    Do you realise that there are more junior players in the Penrith Juniors than the rest of Sydney combined (excluding the shrinking Parramatta juniors)?
    The area is also home for 2 of the largest Soccer associations in the state - Nepean and Blacktown.

    but let’s just build stadiums to suit soccer, RU and penalise the biggest RL area in the world.

    That would be an outstanding result for the game in Sydney but getting the State Govt to invest best part of $1bill in infrastructure it doesnt own could be a challenge unless they are brand new stadiums built on Govt land.
