Last time i looked at the league ladder don't remember seeing Liverpool in the top 8 or even making the semi,s in the next 30 years. So Bankwes,t out Kogarah way. 35.000 CAPICITY.

27,327. If they had more notice they could have got it to approx 32,000+ apparently.
So is this an option for big Cowboys games going forward or does it have to be a huge event like Origin to make it worthwhile?

With 2 weeks notice surely a Cowboys home prelim would have as many temp stands added as possible.

For 6 games a year? Or will Cronulla commit to playing there as well?

Hopefully, but I think the only events other than origin that they’d ship it in for would be cowboys prelims and if they managed to take something like a bledisloe up there.

Well Liverpool would get at least 10, possibly 20 games a year if the Tigers and/or Bulldogs commit to it (assuming they take 2 games to Leichardt, Campbelltown, Belmore each year).

Kogarah would get 6 max unless the Sharks commit to it which seems unlikely given all the work they are doing near Shark Park.

The Sharks are going back to Shark Park next year, even with reduced capacity and maybe 9 games there and the remaining going to Sunshine Coast, Coffs and NZ.

That's how much they don't want to be at Kogarah.

Can't see us going there permanently ever unless it's really in our financial interests.

Renovating Kogarah is a terrible idea.

Liverpool is Tigers territory, the biggest issue with Bankwest is many fans see it as Parramatta Stadium and refuse to go there.

Cronulla will never commit to Kogarah - that is a stated fact. Documented 25% of members refuse to even attend games at that sithole hence why the club is returning to Shark Park next year, even at a reduced capacity. I'm hearing Kogarah will never be developed, there is no economic case for it.

Have the dogs or triggers ever said they would play at Liverpool! It would be a white elephant without a tenant.

Dogs already own a great piece of land at Liverpool. It's where they were going to make the Stardome stadium before the whole salary cap scandal broke. It's well located. And with Liverpool probably going to be the 3rd major centre in Sydney in the future. It's a good time to look at that situation.


I have no doubt the Bulldogs would play the majority of their games at any new ground out that way (10+). As long as the Tigers bring 5-6 games. It would be more than worthwhile.
