If they build that then we should be looking at Melbourne 2 before Adelaide and Perth.
The aim would be to create a point of difference. If you base another team in the inner city, who would follow them? It Is why Melbourne City is moving there.Possibly. But I would think if a second Melbourne team ever came in they would just use AAMI park. Melbourne keeps banging on about how their public transport system all feeds into their sporting precinct that I don't think a team based out of a ground out in the suburbs would work.
Storm would want to be selling out AAMI every week before a new team is seriously considered. Brisbane 2 & 3 much better options.Fair enough, but a new team in Melbourne would also want to make itself as accessible to as many people as possible. Anyway, it's not something likely to happen in the next 20 years.

However, if either or both of the 15k stadiums here got up, a game at each would be good to spread the gospel.
It is owned by the (Manchester) City group so not sure. Has been a total flop so far.
South east is very multi cultural. Indians, Africans. 10k - 12k is big enough for soccer, if they get built reckon that will be the right size.Not a complete flop, but not as successful as they could have been for sure.
Sydney did it better bringing in the Wanderers, creating that point of difference (West vs the snobs from the East).
Melbourne already had Victory, which represented the whole city (Sydney FC never did that), and the brainiacs at the FFA thought Melbourne needed a 2nd team, and called them Melbourne Heart, who were really not recognizable as a different team to the Victory geographically. They were just another team. At least WU have claimed "a region" They just need to get a move on and get their stadium built as per their bid.
I think this is a smart move from the City Group to move out to Dandenong. That SE region of Melbourne is a very strong football area (over 100 clubs, 23000 registered players and around 1.2 million population) and apparently rather multi cultural in certain areas. The failed Team 11 bid initiated this move.
A couple of decent 15-20000 seat stadiums in the east and west of Melbourne would be great.
I know exactly what sport this is, and 15k is way to small.Do you know what sport this is champ?
It’s not the Super Bowl as much as you want to pretend it is.
Every single one of the AFL clubs are based in Melbourne's inner suburbs, and they have no trouble finding people to support them. It's not always about where you are from, it's about there actually being enough people interested to sustain all the teams in the city.
exactly what is happening at brookie
is it lipstick on this pig ?
or .. are they doing it properly & building grandstands at the northern end & eastern side around to the sthn stand
then it might be a half decent venue
