    Of course it's a win for AFL. The Lions get a state of the art new stadium plus the Gabba will be on the newly built cross river rail line.

    I am not sure how they plan to do this though, there is no room to build a bigger stadium at the current site. There is not enough room there for the current stadium! There is also a heritage listed state school behind it. They would have to close down either Vulture or Stanley street and build over the top of it.

    Anyway that's 10 years away. You would f**king hope by then Brisbane has a 2nd and maybe 3rd NRL team but LOL who the f**k knows with this code.

    It’s all about tribalism, it’s all about your suburb and it’s all about your team,’’ V’landys told 2GB.

    Lol, nothing says Sydney tribalism like 11k in the burbs.

    The new Gabba field will be longer (east - west) to accomodate a running tract and more narrow. It will be shaped like Optus in Perth rather than the current MCG/SCG almost round shape. It fits.

    So you’re thinking the new Gabba could be suitable for rugby league, say like, ANZ?

    Not that narrow, but better than MCG or SCG. RL could certainly use it temporarily if Suncorp was to be rebuilt in the future.

    As a fan of sports it is pretty sad that the olympics wants (seems to be begging) Brisbane to be the host city. What ever happened to the Olympics?

    the western stand ( i think ) to mirror the east
    upping the capacity to 60K apparently

    that would be good

    Massive amounts of corruption and greed, being a money pit for host nations without any real long term benefits, screwing athletes over by making billions of dollars off their backs without giving them a share in the profits, do I need to go on?

    With the possible exceptions of FIFA and the NCAA, the IOC might just be the most detestable sports organisation on the planet.

    Classic rugby league. We know where Origin II will be played in 2022, but we still don't know if there will be any mid year Tests in a couple of months time... :rolling_eyes:

    Short term maybe gain for RL, for long term prosperity for the AFL when they get their new shiny $b1 palace delivered to them and the public will want to see and be part of it.

    I don't think that's been determined yet but if they're spending 200million or what ever the figure was quoted then that's likely a full knockdown.

    Yep.
    It sounds like the Lions will take home games to Melbourne and Nth Queensland during 2028 - 2031 while the new Gabba is constructed. There may be no AFL in Brisbane at all for three seasons as their new training/AFLW stadium in Springfield will only hold 10K. Other games will be at Carrara.
    So Rugby League needs to have its medium and long term strategies for Brisbane in place ASAP to take advantage of this. Any new team(s) must be bedded down by then, to take advantage of this and claw back support. There will no doubt be an uplift in Lions crowds once they are playing in Australia's best stadium from 2032.

    why would you spend that sort of money on a stadium for 6 games a year? Are dragons going to move there full time or is there other tenants going to use it?

    Sydney FC are moving there because the new SFS is too big.
